It’s a couple hours after the news broke and I’ve had some time to digest what happened. I’m still skeptical but rather than cry about it, I will change my point of view to cautiously optimistic. Basically I’m hoping it works for everyone involved.
I’m going to write a long piece in the next day or two about the guys we lost, but for now I plan to focus on what we got – Rick Nash.
As Glen Sather said in his conference call this afternoon:
“You don’t have many opportunities to make this kind of deal. This is a very important deal to our hockey club.”
