Obviously if Dubinsky has already been dealt for Nash we don't have him to move for assets later. I don't see how holding on to your pieces for longer can be anything but good.
The point is people are complaining about what Nash's cap hit does to the Rangers and that they dont want to trade any assets to get him. They're saying they should keep their assets and just go out and sign Parise which just costs money. This may be the better move but it puts the Rangers in a much worse situation with the cap. Thats not something you can disagree with. If the Rangers trade Duby + for Nash they are taking on $3.6 million dollars as opposed to $7 million with keeping Duby and signing Parise. So either way they are going to have to trade someone in order to keep their RFA's in 2 offseasons.
