Are you really arguing that playing with better players will not help his game? Or playing on a team where he is not the lone threat so teams cant solely focus on him? Or the likelihood that playing on a contending team over the worst team in his league may give him some added juice? Your argument is illogical and borderline ridiculous
Kovy's point totals are down as are his goal totals. Go look it up.

It is not un-reasonable for to think Nash could put up better numbers with the talent level of this team. With that being said, it would be foolish to assume it as a forgone conclusion.
I mentioned Neal as the only one I could think of. And last year he was a total nonfactor. But I'll stipulate he is one you can count. I still can't think of another. Almost every single star traded to a better team has put up equal or lesser numbers.
