No I see the upside in Nash.
The problem was we overpaid by holding on to Stepan, who they really wanted.

We'd obviously have been better off giving up
Stepan
Dubi
Erixon
Redden (expensive cap dump, but we are taking on like 80 mil salary commitment)

and instead kept Anisimov and our first, and had that first buyout.

Things could change in 6-7 years, but right now no probs w/Nash.
Richards, we gave him too much for too long.
I think he can snap out of it, and won't do a Redden immediately, but he's got like 4-5 good years in the tank ... MAYBE.
