What I do know is that I wouldn't give up Dubinsky+prospect+1st for Nash when Nash's contract is $7.8M for 6 more years. You have to take things like cap ramifications, defensive ability, and team chemistry (especially for this year's team) into account. You seem to be looking at the situation from a very narrow perspective. And calling Dubinsky a spare part sells his potential & ability short.
agreed, Dubinsky has played well in the playoffs..what if Nash cracks and doesnt produce when the pressure counts.. id rather have the Rangers trade for guys who has won a playoff series or 2...guys like Ray Whitney, Pavel Kubina, Eric Staal (if he actually was available) players like that...No to Nash Carter or anyone without a playoff history
