Strictly on paper

Add 30-40 goals from Nash
minus 15-20 from Anisimov
minus 15-20 from Dubinsky
decreases our ability to absorb injuries

To say nothing of the fact that Nash's presence will decrease the looks Gaborik gets on the powerplay, so it could have a negative impact there too.
This logic is flawed because someone has to take the place of the 2nd player removed from the roster. You have to add in their production, or the difference in their production with the extra ice time as opposed to where they were in the lineup originally.
