In Response to Krejci and Boychuk for Rick Nash
[QUOTE]Johnny will be tough to re-sign. Krejci too soft. Bring on Nash and move Seguin to Center!

LOL at Krejci being "too soft." No, he isn't. Just ask the Flyers.
At any rate, if you're going to post trade proposals, here's a hint: First check capgeek.com and check out your players' cap hits, length of contract, and whether they have NTCs or NMCs.
For example, Nash (who's 27), has a $7.8 million cap hit on a contract that runs through 2018 with a NMC. Compare that to Krejci (26 years old, $5.25 million cap hit through 2015 with a limited NTC (six teams he will not be traded to)). Not to mention Boychuk, a UFA to be sure but a solid bargain at $1.875 million this year; and why should he be tough to re-sign? What is your reasoning for that statement?
At any rate, Nash is a good player, but the Bruins aren't going to take on that contract.
And your other proposal (LeCavalier for Thomas) is even more ridiculous. LeCavalier is 31 and has a $7.727 million cap hit on a contract that runs through 2019
. And a NMC to boot. He's also at the moment #80 in the NHL in points (25). Not a bad player, but certainly not worth that cap hit at that length of contract.
And for anyone wondering about Horton, his cap hit is $4 million and he's not a UFA until after next season. And he has a NTC.
