The difference between Columbus building around Nash and NYR building around Nash would be night and day. We will be a max cap team so there will be other stars in our lineup.

That said, it's still way too premature to be having serious thoughts of blowing up this team. We're only 1/3 of the way through the season. Plenty of time for our guys to get healthy and the team to start playing solid hockey. And as we all know, you want to be playing your best hockey going into the playoffs, not out of the gate. This season isn't a lost cause at this point.
