With an elite goalie in his prime, and Rick Nash on your roster for several more years, you just can't "blow it up" unless you go full nuclear by trading both of those players. That's just never going to happen -- at least not while Slats is running the show.
I think moving Gaborik and building around Nash isn't a bad idea. Need a good return for sure though.
