There are other assets being asked for in addition to Kreider.

This much I know...the reports I've read regarding what the Rangers anticipate for Kreider is that he can step in to the top 6 as early as next year and be a 20-goal scorer, and that, he can be a consistent 30 goal scorer in his prime, which essentially what Nash is now. And, for the first 5-7 years of that time, he'll be doing it very inexpensively, which is ridiculously important in the salary cap era.
How quickly the past is forgotten.
