You tend to talk a "big game" on here, but lets not forget the fact that you suggested that we trade Markus Naslund and a 1st round pick to the Flyers for Simon Gagne back in 2004.
Did I say that? That's a long time, hell if I can remember what I wrote almost 10 years ago. *LOL* Some ppl seem to really like following my posts. It's like they soak it all in like I'm Jesus or something.
Anyways seriously, I remember comparing Nasi with Patrik Elias, not sure about Gagne though. But, if it was Gagne, he followed up 2004 with 47G, 41G and 34G and played in the NHL up till last year. Nasi followed up 2004 with 32G, 24G, 25G and has retired from the NHL for years now. Yup, I think getting Gagne for Nasi @ that time would of been a good trade.
I'm not sure about the 1st round pick though. If anything Phillie should of given us a 1st round pick in such a deal cuz Nasi recently came off 3 40+ goal seasons and was a Pearson award winner in 2003, while Gagne was basically a 20-30G man at that time.
