No one said this. A couple people with one-line responses said it was a bad deal for Columbus. And a couple people gave brief answers saying NYR wouldn't do it. Nice miscasting of the discussion.

You can't argue value in a vacuum. It's the stuff outside the vacuum that really determines value. One really good young defenseman (who I'd love to have on the Jackets) isn't worth moving an entire second pairing on a defense that needs a solid-if-unspectacular presence. The other pieces involved in the proposal don't really help the Jackets, either. And the CBJ as a whole, in the wake of the Nash deal folks may have heard of, need to let the resulting roster sift and find a level before additional changes are made.

I don't think I would like that deal from a Rangers perspective, either, but I guess it depends on your approach to the roster.
