There's no guarantee but we still should have gone for it, especially because, considering how alarmingly bad Kreider has been, it probably wouldn't have made a difference.

Now we have Nash and what's he playing with? A Brad Richards that has aged 15 years in 6 months, the return of 2011 Gaborik, a very meh Lundqvist and a team that is showing no heart, no gumption, and no intelligence.

Compare that to last year, where Richards was a beast in the playoffs, Gaborik was our best forward, Lundqvist won the Vezina, and the team was playing almost perfect in terms of not blowing leads and taking dumb penalties.

You gotta pick the fruit when it's ripe.
