Throw in Malholtra who's already played in Columbus to free up another 2.5 million in cap space for another dman who can move up to a top4 if Salo gets injured.

Nash >>>>>> Ballard + Raymond and it's not even close. I think Nash is worth more for his cap hit than Ballard and Raymond are for theirs because of there they play in the lineup (IE: Ballard would be a better cap hit if he was playing on a defense where he was in the top4... not sitting in the pressbox half the time). Ballard would be worth more the Columbus for 4.2 than he would be for Vancouver.

To Vancouver:

To Columbus:

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Nash
Higgins - Hodgson - Hansen
Weiss - Lapierre - Bitz

Hamhuis - Bieksa
Edler - Salo
Tanev - (2.5m dman)

Terrible deal for Columbus. They could get a lot more for Nash and better parts.

You want Nash, better start thinking about giving up a piece or two you actually don't really want to.
