You want a list of premier power forwards ahead of Nash imo?

Getzlaf (yea awful seasons but still a fantastic power forward)
Eric Staal (although he is considered a hybrid sniper/PF)
Thornton (for all the hate he gets he is a way more complete power forward then Nash)

Not one of them is making more then Rick Nash. A lot of em don't even come close...except Thornton. It's not to say Nash isn't talented. But he isn't worth the amount you'd have to pay him and the number of prospects/picks/roster players you'd have to give up to give him. Not to mention his contract likely handcuffs you from bringing in more talent. Or retaining what you already have when contracts come up.
