Not an argument just pointing out there is a lot of stuff that could be figuring into Sathers decision, among those a potential lockout and lost season that we have no clue about...I'm sure the owners already have a game plan for their asks and the minimum they are willing to settle for and Sather knows what that plan is. Why else would Brooks say Sather is not concerned about cap implications only the asking price?

For instance if Sather knows there will be amnesty buyouts with no cap impact in the next CBA doesn't that change the equation? Or maybe the large markets give something to the small-mid markets and in exchange prior buyouts (Drury) also come off the cap in the next CBA.

There are so many unknowns with the CBA expiring it would be difficult for anyone to say that getting Nash would hamstring this team cap wise next season or seasons after that.
