I wouldn't lump Nagy in the same group as Sammy. Lad can play all the forward positions and has some size.
Keep in mind the draft this year is thin. Really thin. Anything out of the top 5 or so is going to be wide open. Dallas is strong this year, and will have a late pick. Tjarnqvist is a roster player, but not anyone of great importance. Merely a warm body. IMO Dallas gave up some quantity, but not a lot of quality.
As for the StL reporters feeling of Gainey's top 5 list, I'd much rather have Doan than either Blue. Sure, the price will be higher, but I think worth it. Guerin's and Tkachuk's attitudes have never impressed me.
That is, in fact, not true. It's not a top heavy draft, but a really deep one...
The more I think about it and have seen what Nagy went for the more I think BG can pull of some sort of deal to get Boynton and possibly Doan too. And the more I think these two guys can be important players for the CH.
Boynton is a reliable D not having the greatest season but he's under contract for 2 more years at under 3M per.
Doan is a rental but is a physical rugged player with the ability to put the puck in the net.
In my opinion judging by what Nagy went for, I think a reasonable proposal, could be something as was proposed earlier in this thread,
Ryder, O'byrne and a 1st. Perhaps a bit more would need to be given, even a return rental in Rivet would be possible, the team is already 8 Dmen deep bringing in a ninth is pointless. I could see Gretz appreciating a veteran presence and thinking that they could re-sign him.
Regardless of my rambling I could see this being very good for the habs and a very appealing possiblity for BG.
