According to Larry Brooks of the NY Post, here's what Howson wanted and what he was offered.Howson's offer: Dubinsky — plus either Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto — plus either Derek Stepan or Carl Hagelin — plus 2009 first-rounder Chris KreiderRangers GM Glen Sather's offer: Brandon Dubinsky, 21-year-old top defense prospect Tim Erixon, highly regarded 2011 first-round draft choice J.T. Miller and 2010 second-round pick Christian Thomas, along with a 2012 first-round selectionCan't blame Howson. I really like the upside of NYR's offer, but you don't get NHL-ready impact just yet. It's not a bad offer at all, in fact, in the long run, it could be close to the package Howson wanted. But it's a very difficult sell for a fan base that is already beyond frustrated.If Kreider or del Zotto were in that second offer, replacing Christian Thomas or JT Miller, Nash is a Ranger today.

If they did, this trade would never have happened.No hope until Howson is gone and I don't know what it will take to get that done, if this last year didn't.

I just don't see the BJ's in the list of most profitable franchises like I do the Tribe.

The talent will go up in the AHL with a lockout. Edmonton has already said Ryan Nugent-Hopkins would play for Oklahoma City in the event of a lockout. Imagine other teams will follow suit.

Sidenote: If there is no season this year will they redo the lottery, or just use last years draft order?
