And quit with the semantic arguments. They slow these threads to a crawl. I don't think Nash is an "elite" forward. A better way to define his talent is by his projected position in a good team's lineup. He's a top six winger, at worst. He'd probably be a first line winger on most teams (including ours).
He can play on the second PK unit or in spot duty on the PK. He is a threat to score when used consistently on the PK, and teams planned around that when Hitchcock was in Columbus. He is "good" defensively. He isn't going to win the Selke anytime soon ("elite" defensive forward), and he isn't a defensive liability ("bad"). Our PP will likely improve with him in the lineup.
And again, if Kreider or Stepan are a part of this deal we should walk away. But we shouldn't step away because 2nd/3rd line tweeners like Anisimov, Dubinsky, and Hagelin might leave.
Hes a top 6 winger at worst?
Just stop. The guy is an all star winger.
If one or or two teams he gets bumped down to another line because there happens to be an Marian Hossa type player already on the top line that doesnt make him just a "top 6 winger"
