Another thing Kip, Nyquist is on par to be just as good as Hall this season. He has more goals than Hall this year, more PP goals, and is only a few points behind him. If we are trading value for value/potential, Nyquist for Hall should be a straight up trade. And Edmonton would be getting the deal because Hall makes $6M and Nyquist is still sub $1M, granted he is due a significant raise, but not to $6M.
I stand corrected on the "uncoachable" comments. Dreger made them, and while they may or may not be true, I've relied on Dreger's analysis in the past and would be a hypocrite if I ran you down for doing it now.
As far as Nyquist vs. Hall. Hall is, and will continue to be the better player. The fact that they momentarily have similar point totals doesn't really mean too much. I like Nyquist fine, and I see no reason to run him down, but he's simply not the better player.
