Perhaps a KESSEL for Nash trade is closer to what the Leafs need.

A top centre is the priority... Not another winger who would underperform due to the lack of a top pivot.
depending on what you believe regarding the lack of leadership in the dressing room, Nash might have more of an impact than we think

A thread based on something that Berger pulled out of his behind.

They want our 1st. Badly. Galchenyuk/Yakupov would be like drafting the Sedins.

Management pretty much already spoken out that they will not trade a package of younger guys for an older guy. If we give up these assets we would ask for Mason/Johansson in return.

This would be overpayment for JOE THORNTON when he was around or over a PPG, not for a 60 pt winger with work ethic problems, bad attitude and tendencies to ask for trades when things get tough. No chance in hell, if I were Burke, I'd take some garden scissors and cut the phone line to Columbus. This is not a lowball offer, this is nearly an insult.

You would believe that Nash was an actual top tier star from that demand. Nash is much like Kessel a support star, and no way would I give up that bounty for him.

The strangest part of all this that has yet to be pointed out is who the hell follows Berger on Twitter?

It may not be an overpayment in Columbus' eyes but we are in no position to deal that kind of return for Nash.

BTW it's an overpayment.

I really think that Burke would consider a deal like this before giving up a package like that.

The Columbus Blue Jackets: The store you go into, see a ton of stuff you like - look at the pricetags and hastily make for the door.

Simply not in the budget for the leafs rebuild.

Bahahahaa. Nash is a cap BOMB and overrated player who would take this team nowhere. I would not trade a package of L.A.C.K. for him unless we were going to flip him.

Maybe I have some crazy bias, or I'm terrified about an almost 8 mill cap hit 6 years from now, but I will say this, NASH IS NOT THE GUY.

I read that first sentence and thought that you were asking if signing Schultz would be like getting a first rounder

There's no way we do that deal.

I'd consider Gardiner, Kadri, 2012 1st and _____ for Nash and CBJ's 1st rounder to be a better trade.

It should be interesting on how the blue jackets do end up moving him because it's clear to everyone nash wants out.

Kadri and Gardiner I would do, albeit relunctantly, but the first is absolutely laughable for that contract.

Yeah, I guess I forgot the token

Lets assume this is fairly accurate in what Columbus wants. That's more than Burke paid for Kessel. Would anyone seriously give that much away?

Whether it's really what Columbus wanted I don't know, but if it was no chance we take that. They really will need to fire that idiot and hire a new GM if they are going to find a way to move Nash. That guy's ridiculous prices are getting over the top to say the least.

Don't agree. Nash and Kessel are 2 very different players. Not to mention Nash plays both wings and would instantly create room for Kessel whether on his line or not. On another line, teams may match their tougher defensive forwards and defenders against Nash, rather than Kessel. Having 2 scoring threats on 2 different lines is never a bad thing.

Either way, the asking price for Nash would have to substantially drop for Burke to pull off a deal IMHO. I don't see why he should cost 3 high end prospects. Leafs are picking, most likely, in the 3-5 spot at their pace. That's Reinhart, Murray, Dumba, Grigs, Galchenyuck territory. This sounds earily familiar to the Kessel deal, and we all know what the majority think of that

Howson better be careful here. After all of this crap that Nash has been put through with this organization during the trade deadline, I'd say that he's pretty fed up with him by now. If he's not moved before next season with the list of teams that he's provided him, his agent is going to publicly make a big stink about this situation and will pretty much force his hand here to deal Nash asap thus lowering his value. Nash has all the power here due to his NTC, and he knows it. If he's going to be traded, it will be somewhere that he wants to be (ie: Toronto). Columbus is not a big market team that can just simply absorb a salary like this with a disgruntled player. If he ends up botching this trade by getting too greedy with his demands, he's not gonna be employed next season.
