That assumes that each year presents identical circumstances/dynamics. Plus, although Nash is very good, I don't think he's that kind of great player that thoroughly galvanizes a team (I agree with you that he's no superstar).
If 'galvanizing' were that easy, then Messier should've been able to get at least one of those pre-lockout teams into the playoffs
Brian Leetch had TONS of teams not make the playoffs during his tenure. Maybe he's not a catalyst too? hell, Leetch had WAY more talent than Nash had to work with.
Making the playoffs isnt the be all end all when judging a player.
