Nash was brought here to provide enough additional scoring to win us a cup. Not to be the #1 goal scoring threat. That is Marian's job.
Gaborikis one of the top 5 goal scoring threats in the league. As of right now, Nash is #12, maybe #11 is you're being harsh to Bobby Ryanafter a bad year.
And that's the biggest risk in Nash. You're paying him like a top 5-10 scorer for the next half dozen years (not to mention the assets you gave up to get him), when that's not what he is. If he helps get you the cup it's totally worth it...if not, well that's a different story. Time will tell.
