No doubt J-Bo will be a great player, but Nash was needed more by the CBJ than J-Bo.
My frustration with the whole trade situation was people who thought Dudley was a genius and MacLean was an idiot. Sure, it was a worthy gamble by Dudley that Columbus would be worse, but CBJ got one of the clear top 4 in a thin draft (and a guy they desperately needed) at the risk of slipping the following year in a deep draft. CBJ don't move to 1 and a team like Washington trades up for Nash if ATL doesn't pick him.
Ultimately, Dudley gave up draft picks for a guy who could have picked at no cost. Columbus gave up nothing for Nash.

BTW, love the avatar Vlad. Always makes me laugh.
