Maybe you should pullout the ol' abacus and crunch Rick Nash's numbers.

EDIT:

man, I was being generous calling him a "glorified 65 point player at 8 million per"... Nash, is in fact, a glorified 60 point player at 8 million per. 547 pts / 9 seasons = roughly 60 points per.

Rick Nash is the greatest hockey player that never was. Wins a Rocket Richard at 19 and people still think he's 19 with all this potential 10 years later. Rick Nash is who Rick Nash is gonna be: a GROSSLY overpaid 60 pt player who can score some goals and is a nothing more than a solid overall player. I'd take him at 5.5 million. 8 million? Insanity.
Rick Nash would be a 40-goal scorer, minimum, with Giroux as his center (would you take him at his current cap hit for that production?). But please, by all means, continue to "analyze" his stats without contextualizing them or even giving slightest consideration to the cluster**** of a situation in Columbus and how that could've possibly had a negative effect on his play.
