Yeah, he's being stupid. He's going to lose Nash anyway, he might as well get whatever he can for him. If he hangs onto him through the offseason I bet he is forced to make a trade at the deadline for much less than what he could have gotten.
If he was smart he would take whatever package the Rangers are offering. They have the best assets and rumored packages (Dubinsky + MDZ + a prospect like Erixon). He's not going to get more than that.
He's trying to make up for getting owned last year in the Carter debacle and is being stubborn, but if he doesn't take whats on the table he will end up looking even worse with what he'll have to accept later on.
