I totally agree with your general opinion players on ELC's demanding trades, but there are exceptions to these things. I don't know how realistic it would be for them to consider dealing him within the Division, but he seems like the perfect fit for your team (big, physical, shoot-first winger).
This is my read on it as well. I'm a big Nino fan. If Maatta and pick gets it done I make that trade yesterday.
