The 2 worst D-men in the league probably (although you seem to think that's Staal and Del Zotto).
That's just it in a nutshell pal. Everybody posts here about how wonderful and deep we are in prospects yet when push comes to shove "we ain't got nobody!"
When it comes time to trading for an elite talent like Nash at the deadline, we can't afford to move the following supposed "untouchable players for him:
1)A "defacto 2nd line center" who doesn't skate very well, doesn't win many faceoffs, doesn't score many goals when it counts(playoffs for example) and who gets knocked off the puck by a strong wind
2) A prospect with size, skating ability and a shot who just got sent down to the AHL, or
3) A defenseman with great upside offensively who, at times, looks "completely lost" on the defensive side.

You tell me what's wrong with this picture since you're so smart??
