For Nash to be a good buy, he can't just produce like he has up to this point in his career, but actually has to improve. As horrible as the Columbus situation has been, I just can't see that happening.
Acquiring Nash simply fails a cost-benefit analysis unless the trade demands drop dramatically. The potential of it working out and him succeeding here is simply outweighed by the risk of it not, imo. Even if the price is the rumored offer (Dubinsky + Erixon + Miller + Thomas + 1st).
I would rather go into next season with no major moves and smaller tweaks than see Nash brought in for the rumored offer price (let alone more). Of course, I'd prefer bringing in Parise on a front-loaded, cap circumvention deal over both of those scenarios.
