How would people feel if an offer ever based around this came around?
And yes i know its "another CBJ, NYR trade" but if it's something that can make sense who cares. I know we are likely to slow down as trade partners due to realignment but i'm bored and it's kind of interesting.
My reply would simply have been that Nikitin started the year horrible playing with Tyutin. They were split up and he appeared to get back to playing like a #4 dman. His English is quite good and I don't buy the "plays better with Tyutin" issue. Anyway, I think this becomes too complicated and, personally, I think Tyutin would be the best player in that trade based on his play this season. Nikitin and a pick, I'm OK with that for a player like MDZ. Rangers....probably not.
