Yes, I'm sure they want to lose their star player for can't miss talent like Brett Connolly, a mid 1st, and a talented 2nd line center that will undoubtedly walk from Columbus.

I think Jackets fans need to temper some of their expectations when it comes to a potential return for Rick Nash. He's like the 5th highest paid player in the league, and he's nowhere near the 5th best player. There's not a lot of teams that would be prepared to make that kind of cap space to bring him on.

Not saying this is the right deal (Grabo holds a lot more value to the Leafs than he does Columbus)... but it's not completely out of line either.

Leafs should have no problem taking on 10+ million in salary. Nope, no problem at all.

No they don't. Because, and here's a crazy idea - maybe CBJ doesn't intend to trade him. Point being that, unless a potential return is suitable, there's no compulsion to make a deal.

I've got no beef with fans who think he's overpaid or overrated or whatever (some of them might even have legitimate positions). But if that's the conversation starter, it doesn't end with "so therefore you'll take less for him" it's "so therefore Jackets won't trade him."

I don't think this trade benefits any of the three teams.
