As a CBJ fan I'm OK with this deal. Of course I hoped for more just like everyone else but getting 2 top 6 or top 9 forwards and 1st and a promising d-man prospect seems like a pretty good return. In Hockey talk you could certainly say the Rangers "won" the trade because they flat out got the best playerin the deal by far. However, Columbus became a better team today and with 3 picks in the 1st round next year they can address the high end skill they lack while adhering to the Nashville recipe for success. Good goaltending (We're working on that ), good defense and offense that plays in all three zones.

Columbus will have a solid forecheck, excellent PK, solid faceoff players and should control the puck. With the defense as strong as it looks this team is far better than the 2012 version. I can't wish Nash luck because as much as he was my favorite player I absolutely can't stand the Rags. There's something about growing up and Islanders fan that simply does that to a man.
