i think neilson/nelson would be a good deal for the following reasons
Nielson stepd right into 3rd line center role- great against the power play deadly in the shootouts can score 15+ Sooner or later we have to give up assets there is not enough room for all of these kids if Nino is unhappy maybe he goes if not i know nelson has a high cieling but he is not helping us now O'rielly can be the second line center for years to come he plays relenless and fits the two way player that we need . Colorado gets a player that steps right into his spot plus a top prospect as for the money i think 3.5 backloaded a year gets him with the promise of 2nd line.there would be no way he gets captaincy (tavarase of course).i know some would not like nielson in the deal but O'Rielly will play better against the bigger better teams in the league ;lets face it we have not made the playoffs with him unless we trade assets for upgrades we will not be in the playoffs again this year
