No, actually it isn't. You evaluate the trade based on the players in it. That's why I said strictly on paper.

And even so if it was

plus 30-40 goals from Nash
plus 10 goals from Pyatt
minus 15-20 goals from Dubinsky
minus 15-20 goals from Anisimov
decrease ability to absorb injuries

Are those 10 extra goals and our decreased depth really worth a high level prospect and a first round pick?

I don't mean to turn this into a Nash thread. Sorry mods. My thoughts on the subject are fluid tonight.
