This has to be one of the dumbest moves I have seen in a long time. The leading scorer of the Coyotes is gone for basically nothing. Dallas won't likely have a pick before atleast 18 or somewhere around there and maybe even lower and the player is a no name and probably won't make much of a difference. Just when it looks like Phoenix is making some room to improve their team they go and do something like this. I bet that they will throw away the pick in the summer and they will regreat trading Nagy.

I wouldn't say the trade was for nothing, because they can still get a good player with the draft pick. But trading away Nagy means that the Coyotes believe that they won't be making the playoffs. Does this mean that Doan will be next? I don't think so because Gretzky loves him, and I don't think he wants him to go.

Dallas improve there team big time, because they needed a scorer and they got one with Nagy, he's probably going to play with Modano which means that he's going to play even better.

There is the chance that they will make a smart pick but over the last few years they have really gone off the board and it has not helped them much. If they get rid of Doan then they are just plain stupid. Nagy and Doan had the making to be a good 1-2 punch one day in the NHL if they were given a little time but that was not the case.

Dallas for sure helped their team. It was a good move and to be fair they really did not give up all that much so its a win win situation for the Stars. Good move and props to them for it. I don't think they are done just yet however.
