Two players that can be reasonably counted on to score 8 - 12 goals.


From my point of view that is balanced scoring.

My question: Why do we need to off load roster players that got us an ECF, give up solid prospects, give up 1st or second round picks for a player like Nash?

Is he really what puts us over the top....or are we better off with out him?
The idea is to give yourself the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup. Getting to the ECF was super-duper, but why does that mean you don't look to add to the roster?

And to me, scoring depth is a reason you do trade 2 roster players for one better one.
