Well - the way I see it...Franzen is most likely on the decline...Fillpula will go back to being a 35 to 40 point guy...Nyquist could be a 30 pt guy - then again he could shock us all, and become a 60 to 70 pts guy.
Why not make a trade for a guy who'll ride on Datyuk's wing, and possibly get 40 plus goals, and 80 plus pts?
To me it's high risk - high reward.
You are right in that it is high risk, and for a winger mind you. I think that price is too steep, especially with the 1st rounder added in too which is what you didn't discuss.
Would you make that trade? I wouldn't.
That's what the reports say.
I haven't read a single report on what was offered. It certainly would be nice to hear something credible before we pass judgement.
Otherwise, I heard from "a source" that he offered Dats, Zetterberg, and Franzen for Nash and they rejected.
