It was not wrong - if they in reality have now addressed that problem. I agree with you 100% there. And Rick Nash is a 1st overall pick - that has played in obscurity on an awful team in Columbus all his career. But he needs to show a lot more on the scoresheet than he has so far. If you are happy with the results (5% shooting percentage, no PP goals...) so far then that is your entitlement.

In addition to the already mentioned ("non successful") Artem Anisimov - that was a 2nd rounder (#54 overall) - we also gave up a heap of previously acquired assets through our drafts.

How does:
  • 2nd round NYR pick (#60 overall) Brandon Dubinsky - now in the NHL - of the 2004 draft
  • 1st round pick (#21 overall) Bobby Sanguinetti - now in the NHL - of the 2006 draft
  • 5th round (127th overall) pick Roman Horak - now in the NHL - of the 2009 draft
  • 2nd round NYR pick (#45 overall) in 2011
  • 1st round NYR pick coming in 2013

Sound??

oops, forgot, we get back a conditional 3rd round pick and an AHL scrub defender (Delisle)too...
And Jesper Fast as well...

For this kind of a ransom we need better results
