If you look at the numbers,the Rangers are fine adding the Nash cap hit and moving Dubinsky/AA in the deal. The Rangers are adding $1,725,000 in cap space. I was looking at the numbers earlier today.

Rick Nash ($7.800m) / Brad Richards ($6.667m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Carl Hagelin ($0.875m) / Brian Boyle ($1.700m) / Taylor Pyatt ($1.550m)
Mike Rupp ($1.500m) / Jeff Halpern ($0.700m) / Arron Asham ($1.000m)
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Michael Del Zotto ($2.750m)
Tim Erixon ($1.750m) / Anton Stralman ($1.300m)
Stu Bickel ($0.750m)
Michael Sauer ($1.250m)
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)
Chris Drury ($1.667m)
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,008,334; BONUSES: $2,100,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $4,391,666

The issue is 2013-14 when McDonagh,Stepan and Hagelin are group II's. The last season of Gaborik's $7.5M will have to be moved. Say they keep the upper limit at $64.3M for the first two years of the CBA like the NBA did,there is money to pay for the increases to those 3 players but they can't do anything else.
