I'm not trying to put words in your mouth but typically you only bring something up if the difference is substantial. A difference of two points over a season is not substantial. I agree that Lucic+ for Nash doesn't make any sense
Yeah, I only quoted the points because, with each player's current production levels, it would make more sense to trade them one-for-one as opposed to Lucic+Hamilton+a prospect+a pick or whatever Howson is demanding. Nash having not even capped the 60 point mark doesn't do much in convincing GM's that he is worth what they'd have to give in return.
With those kind of demands, maybe Nash should just hang out with Thomas for the season, because I don't think any teams are gonna bite on that. Pipe dreams, Howson.
