Another thing: How do you know PK wouldn't split once he became eligible as a UFA? He'd still have Meehan as his agent.
Sure, he might not become a holdout. He might very well become one too, and then we're right back where we are today.
Also, speaking of the Nash trade, NYR game Dubinsky, Anisimov and a prospect, none of them are better than PK.

As for the UFA status, I don't know that. But I know that there's a bigger chance he opts for the open market if you are so stubborn that you would make him sit out simply because you want to build a reputation. Why would PK want to play for someone that can't give him fair value?
Also, you don't know whether he'll want to stay or leave, the same way you don't know if DD, Eller, Gally, etc, will test the market or not.

You are proving how your player evaluation is non-existent.
