And I always thought Nash was a Stars-killer, glad to have him gone and out of a possible new division.
Sather definitely is an ace at trading. I was F5ing Twitter during the breaking news, trying to find out what the 4th piece to that trade was going to be, praying it wasn't MDZ. Then McKenzie tweeted it was Anisimov and I fist pumped so hard.

Dubi and Anisimov are solid pieces, but their development had stagnated and were destined as inconsistent 2nd liners or great 3rd liners. Erixon was probably the most hard to part with, but it's a great haul for a guy like Nash. Hopefully the high cap hit for 6 hears doesn't hurt in the long run.
