So who do you trade Nurse for?

MacT tried to trade #7 for Schneider.....what makes you think he didn't try for other players?

It's easy to sit here and say do so and so but these GMs are experts in their fields. Their jobs are not to do something foolish. Also they have short shelf lives so very few will trade productive assets for prospects unless their are extenuating circumstances (salary cap, soon to be ufa, etc). Very few markets would put up with rebuild (even for a season). So again very simple to say do X but you have to wait for right situation.
