Erixon is going to be a good player. He was not ready. He needs more strength which will come with time. He needs more commitment. He can't be running to the bench when one of his teammates is in a scrap. I expect that will come too--at least if he gives it and Columbus a chance. Which is to say he is young and he needs to mature. He needs to know what his responsibilities are to his team and he has to get stronger.

Truthfully as far as the Nash deal goes the guy I hated to give up--and he didn't have a good season was Dubinsky because even despite the bad season Dubinsky knows what it takes and he's willing and he's a good player--not great--but he would be a top 9 forward on any team in the NHL and a top 6 on most.
