You can't give up that much. It's absurd. What happens if Nash doesn't perform here or doesn't put us over the top? We'd both be completely unable to add anymore to our club and not have any first-line ceiling forward prospects coming through the pipeline to make up for it. We will have more and better options in the offseason AND we might just win the cup anyway.
This basically sums up how I feel. While Nash is DEFINITELY an upgrade over Dubinsky for the rest of this season, it doesn't guarantee anything but salary cap headaches down the line (unless the new CBA favors big market teams).
