I think Nate would have ended up playing for the Drakkar, because Ahern was standing firm. It would of taken time, but I think it would of happened.

I certainly would of forced him to go to Omaha.
That's easy to say, but not easy to do. You have to consider a rebuilding club, pulling in less fans than the Titan
You have an asset that's not bringing you any return. There is a point ownership needs to either get the player on the ice, or get something in return.
NHL teams won't sit on players for too long either. They don't have a choice. And - yes, the league pressured BC to make a deal or get a commitment. Why wouldn't they? They wanted Mac in the Q, not in the USHL. They didn't want to risk that loss...
