I also think that you shouldn't have a boxed perspective on the so-called "rebuild" this team is going through. We are not the New York Islanders or the Edmonton Oilers of the last few years. We have a good team with a couple (relatively large, albeit) holes.

If Melnyk wants to spend, he can. We have the cap space. I don't think there is a strong argument to be made that an elite forward and a top defenseman wouldn't put us into Stanley Cup contention.
A player of Nash's quality and age isn't available in the everyday NHL market, so while your contention may be right, they aren't often available.

FYI, Melnyk has sold off most of his holdings in Biovail Corp. and is no longer involved with the company.

Besides those ventures I mentioned in an earlier post, Melnyk is involved in Trimel Biopharma Holdings Inc., Fusion Brands Inc., and PurGenesis.
