Well, if we can get another centre, a puck-moving defenseman, and a gritty veteran winger who can play on the 1st or 2nd line... well, after acquiring all those higher priorities first, I guess if Phoenix is willing to move Nagy cheaply, we could always add yet another mid-sized scoring winger too. Just for kicks.
I thought Nagy was a winger but I see HockeyDB has him listed as a center. What does he usually play? If he is indeed a center I'd have no problem getting him as a rental for the second line (if/when the Forsberg thing doesn't work out), but otherwise we have no need for another smallish, expensive winger.
I'm not the kind of person who gets pissed off for nothing, but this team is going nowhere.
I think that Nagy will be a target until the trade deadline. So should be Nikolai Zherdev and Nathan Horton.
In fact, I don't even care. I think that Gainey should listen to the offers of the other teams for about every player.
D Sheldon Souray: Add a pick or a decent prospect and I wonder if Kevin Lowe would accept to give us Joffrey Lupul and Jean-Francois Jacques. I would accept a great prospect and a pick or a young and talented establish players. No Sidney Crosby here. Lupul is the first name that I'm thinking right now since the Oilers would be really interested in Souray.
D Craig Rivet: I would take a 2nd rounder for him. Maybe a deseparate team could even add som kind of prospect with that.
D Francis Bouillon: A 2nd rounder would make it for me.
D Mathieu Dandenault: See Bouillon.
F Michael Ryder: I would take a late 1st rounder but I think it could be more interesting in a package deal.
F Alex Kovalev: If we could get a good prospect and a pick for him, I would be all over it. The guy doesn't want to play for this team anymore.
F Sergei Samsonov: I would take about anything. Pick, marginal player or even an overpaid player who is an UFA to be.
F Alex Perezhogin: Likely in a package deal. That said, I would let him go for a late 1st round pick.
I'm not saying to trade all these guys. There are also other players who could be traded but we wouldn't have enough value for them IMO. That said, if the value is there, I have no problem trading those guys.
The only untouchables are Koivu, Higgins, Latendresse, Markov, Komisarek and Huet.
