Overall, will the CBJ be better, worse or the same without Rick Nash?

Uh, what? Carter just won the cup. Vermette was a big part of Phoenix's run to the Western Conference Final. Brassard could likely play for most "elite" teams. Umberger as well. The Bluejackets were not completely devoid of forward talent last season.
