The cap "problems" come in the 2013 offseason when we need to extend
Stepan, Hagelin, McD, and Sauer
. However, even with Nash we'll still have enough money. And then the offseason after that, Gaborik's contract comes off the books and we maintain great flexibility.
We can afford one more big contract like Nash, especially after knocking off Dubinsky's 4 mil hit. This is the equivalent to signing Nash to a $3.6 mil deal and keeping Dubinsky. Would ANYONE be against that? Yeah , it's a long deal, but Nash is young and he'll be what, 33-34 when the deal is up? That takes us right through his prime.
And if McI develops in the next 2 years you can move Sauer.
