That's why I said 2nd maybe a problem.
They have tons of bottom 6 players, they need top end guys.

Edit: Gaborik is not Nash, but they are looking, or should be, at it the same way we did last season, you are willing to sacrifice some bottom 6 guys for that top end talent.
At the bolded, no, they were not. Maybe one was, but the for the majority, Hornqvist was not on the table, not even straight up. They were not receptive to Horny being moved, especially not with additions.

It was kind of like the Zib+Greening+1st offer. I mentioned it a few times here, few times on the trade board, people started repeating it, but at no point were any Ottawa fans actually open to doing that deal.
