I really believe cbj fans and people who are claiming highway robbery really dont know jack about the players that were sent the other way. Dubi and AA could very well put up the same amount points and more than nash over the course of the year. Dubi adds great leadership, grit, lower cap hit/age, and when he's on he is a pretty effective player. CBJ fans will love him. AA has the skill set and the size. He doesn't play so gritty but has nice playmaking ability, even younger. And Erixon has a boatload of talent, will push for a spot out of camp, good size and ability. 1st round pick in supposedly a good draft.

It was a fair deal. Past the blue chip/untouchables from team to team, the rangers had the players that other didnt. SJ might have been willing to deal Pavelski but theres no guarantee he re-signs in cbj. BOS didnt have a dubi/anisimov package to trade. DET was pretty obvious a no go. PHI made other moves.
