The Rangers had the pieces to move. CBJ needed to move Nash.
Sather, the magician? Yeah, right. The Rangers simply made the highest offer and the other teams said Nash is yours. CBJ received market value. No one offered more for Nash then did the Rangers.
Though it sounds like simple math it isn't.... 2+2 in this case is not 4.
To me, it's all about what was gotten. If DZ or Stepan or both were involved in a trade, how would you feel then? We got rid of two 45 pt guys and prospect and a pick...We got one of the premier scorers in the last 10 years and he would've ranked either first or second in goals the last 10 years on this team.
Dubinsky is heavily complained about or loved on this board. AA is liked indifferently and complained at his penalty and defensive prowess, and Erixon...is a wild card. Who knows what he'll be. Kreider, Stepan, and MDZ still play for us. This trade was not fair...not by a long shot.
