Which is exactly what would happen to Nash here.
And he plays in a defensive system. That can't be denied. He's 29, not exactly father time. He's also playing the PK in NJ, and he had more TOI than any forward in hockey by almost 2 full mins.

But if we think with our brains, trading JVR for Nash would be stupid. Let's keep the cap space to fill a real hole, and just watch as JVR breaks out. Chances are he will be a 60+ point player in the very near future. That's good enough for me-- we already have our franchise forward.
The next closest scorer to Giroux on the team was 26 points away. I think the front office sees the 1st line wing as a real hole. Scott Hartnell is a perfect PWF for his 60-65 pts per year, now they want that sniper to compliment Giroux's passing, which is why Parise's name has been popping up. Signing Parise will cost us a similar fortune to Nash, and give us similar output.
