If Canada could enter 1000 teams Dubinsky wouldn't make any of them.
Which is not to say that Dubinsky's a bad player--only that he's an American. Enough of that.
Two problems really. How much value is worth giving up for Nash in terms of personnel? and 2) how will bringing in Nash effect our cap in years to come?
More or less I could live with a choice of either Dubinsky/Anisimov, our 2012 1st, Erixon, and one choice of Thomas, Fogarty, St. Croix and Fasth + they have to take Wolski. We get back Nash and a 2nd.
OTOH there still remains a question of how worthwhile it would be--at least unless the Rangers won the SC. It would almost certainly make it harder for us to manage cap wise unless the cap were to keep rising--something which I tend to doubt. Might make it much harder a few years from now to keep all the guys that have been growing together.
