Those guys were UFA's that were signed for way too much money and didnt under perform so much as too much was expected from them. Rangers signed Gomez thinking he would be the player he was when scored 30 goals and 80 points and not the the player that averaged the exact numbers he put up for the Rangers. Pretty much the same thing with Drury. His first 2 seasons here he put up basically what his career average was. Rangers were expecting him to be the 37 goal guy he was the season before he came here. Redden was a terrible signing that pretty much every Ranger fan knew was gonna be a disaster. His numbers already started slipping the 2 seasons before he got here.

Nash is being brought in to be the player that he has been for his entire career. A 35 goal 65 point winger, thats it. Hes not being brought in to be a 40 goal 40 assist guy
