So WHY would he care about the team's long term that much?

I wouldn't be surprised if it traded the pick for immediate offensive help or a goalie, in preparation for unloading Nash to get a goalie or offensive help.
For one, if he ever wanted another job in the NHL or even the AHL he would have to explain his actions. I'm sure it could happen but I don't see any team offering a young impact player for the #2 pick which, to me, inevitably leads to going further down the rabbit hole.
