You think he is going to light up the NHL with 35-40 goals just because he is playing alongside Kopitar or Richards? Start using your common sense. It may happen for a while, but consistently year in and year out for the next 6-7 seasons? Not likely.

Then there is the matter of his cap hit and the assets on top of that the Kings would have to give up. As I said in the other thread the only way Lombardi should even consider this is if it is for Brown + Bernier + not much more, and yeah Voynov or Johnson would be too much.

Bottom line Nash is not an $8M player, and he probably won't be in the future.
Blah Blah Blah.... I said he'll score 500 goals and be a HOFer, you seemed to disagree. you can talk about production vs age... break out Bill James' book and and prove whatever you want. Nash will score 500 goals and go to the HOF. period (health willing)
