Rick Nash would have been 2nd on the Rangers in 09/10 (While all of his points came on a terrible CLB team yet again)
Seeing a trend?
ZOMG!!! I did not see that!
Seriously, for me it's not just what we give up for Nash now. That would hurt plenty. My additional concern is how difficult his contract load will make it to sign the young players not given up in this deal.
If you knew that doing this deal would hurt you on the back end. That your chances of signing a McDonagh, a Del Zotto or Cally even would be compromised/threatened...would you do it?
That's why I don't think this happens. In addition to CBJ wanting a goal tender on top of it all. Which we don't have to give them.
I'm not a cap or stats geek, but L.A. would seem to be a much better dance partner than the Rangers.
That's my last damn post in a trade thread until this circus is over next Monday.
