Passing on the guy with higher upside because he'll be making an impact possibly a year or two later would be a big mistake.
That may be true, but sometimes those skills don't translate into being the better player.
Also, I was low-balling on the 3-4 years. From everything I have read (*I only saw Nurse play during the top prospects game*), Nurse is really raw. It could take upwards of 5 to 6 years before he is even an effective NHLer. I think you make the Gormley trade to become a better team in the short term.
A lot also does depends on whether your scouts think Nurse becomes better than Gormley in the first place.
