1- I've seen very few people saying they are happy with Richards' current production. What I HAVE seen (and done) are people saying we need to have patience. Richards needed a full season to adjust the last time he was traded, and he followed it up with the best season of his career. He's also got a track record as a playoffs beast. Richards is worth his contract--he has a history of putting up PPG production. Nash has a history of NOT living up to his contract. People love to bring up team Canada. When a player can only produce when surrounded by the best players in the world, that's not a good thing. Look at the Rangers' roster. This ain't team Canada.

2- Not arguing that Dubinsky is better than Nash, but Dubinsky on his contract is better than Nash on his contract. I'll ask you the same thing I asked the other guy--would you be okay paying a guy 3.5 million to score 15-20 points? And that's JUST looking at the offense (not taking into account the defense, PKing and grit).
