It depends upon which version of Nash, but I more than certainly agree on the likelihood of Tarasenko not being on the level of any of the above for at least his rookie season. McDonald might be able to play the Gaborik role (including being oft-injured...) since he seems to come alive during the playoffs.

The real difference is the lack of first line center to compete with Richards...unfortunate but I do not see an alternative coming any time soon.
