How many times do I have to say this? Nashville is NOT a prime destination right now. We are perceived as a low budget defensive minded team in a market no one in the media cares about. These guys want the spotlight that come from playing in a big market primarily in the East (Horton even if he goes to Columbus will still be playing in the East). Note that Seguin going to Dallas was a trade. A deal we could not match.

While Poile shares some of the blame for squandering picks and not trading excess players, there is simply not much we can do about perceptions.
Because not all Belarusians are the same?

Free agency hasn't even opened yet, and we are already writing the whole thing off? Damn, the bitter pessimism is starting early this year.
