Reader Andrew C emailed me and said that he would include Derek Stepan or Michael Del Zotto in a deal for Rick Nash.
His reasoning was, “Too often we focus on what we are giving up, and not what we are receiving. No player in any proposed package from the Rangers is ever going to approach the skill level or stats of Nash. This is why you are forced to “over pay” in compensation of players to acquire an elite player in the prime of his career. These types of players are not always readily available.”
83% of readers voted and said that the Rangers should not pay the price that Scott Howson wants for Rick Nash.
