Oh okay, I see what you're getting at. I think that Nash would do really well here but I'm clearly in the minority here but I think that he has qualities that could have him succeed here. He's big, strong, creative, also got great shot, and he's a pretty good skater. I just hated seeing Pavs get the crap beat out of him every game. I also think he could become a better player overall here if you consider how McLellan's power vs power thing demands two way accountability but I can agree his contract is not pretty at all.
