Please don't trade Nielsen. I know the Isles need D but I'd rather package picks/prospects for it. Nielsen is one of our few quality veterans. Plus he's our best defensive forward, best PKer, is good for 40-50 points and is one of the top shootout performers in the league(if not THE top player in the shootout. Haven't seen the numbers recently but I know he had the best career % at some point last season).

If Chi-Town isn't interested in picks/prospects I'd just look elsewhere. So much uncertainty with Strome/Nelson/Cizikas, I don't think it would be wise to part with Nielsen at this point barring some sort of ridiculous overpayment.
