Im not surprised this is coming from the poster that kept referring to Nash as "just a 59 point player."

This trade can and will help both teams. On the Rangers side, its a classic case of solid asset management. Dubinsky, Anisimov, and Erixon were the definitions of expendable for the Rangers. They were used to get a proven offensive threat (on a god-awful team, by the way) to solidify a Stanley Cup run. Wait until you see Nash's effect up and down the lineup on a nightly basis. It'll be something that the 3 tweeners we traded away couldnt dream of.
