Maybe so, but what's the difference? If I have someone who consistently puts up 70 points, albeit assists or goals, he's helping the team get goals isn't he? If we have the brass (we do for the most part), a 70 point player is a 70 point player.

Bottom line here isn't whether or not Nash is a great goal scorer or player, it's that he makes nearly $8M a year for a long time and is at a cost that is absurd. Rangers back off and no way give in to anything close to this deal.

This is the Rangers of old attempting a trade like this. Fans should forget this ever even was mentioned. Focus on the playoffs and the cup, we actually have a shot for once. Any movement will be the acquisition of a cheaper top-9 forward and maybe a mean 3rd pair D to bolster the cup run.
