I can understand that. However, I think one could argue that RW or center is also a need. With Richards playing himself into a buyout, and most internal options several years away from being reliable top-six centers, I would think that the org would welcome a one-two-punch of Stepan and RNH down the middle.

Also, if Nash-Stepan-Callahan is going to stick, that leaves a hole on the 2nd line RW. As highly as I view Fast, I don't think he's going to fill that role as effectively in the short term as Eberle or Yakupov would.

Which side Nash is going to play ultimately has a lot to do with where the holes are in the forward group. Personally, I think Eberle would be a coup for this team. Great skill, right-handed shot, and has that "clutch factor" that you just can't teach. Yakupov has huge scoring upside as well. Hall, while very talented, plays a game that his body may not be suited for.
