That's essentially impossible given that there are very few better goal scorers than him and certainly none that we would be able to trade him for.

Guess what. Last year from 12/26 to 2/21 he was 6-12-18 in 25 games. in 09/10 from 12/26-3/7 he was 9-11-20 in 25 games. And these were years where he was 40G and PPG.
Last year from 11/27 to 1/21 Nash was 9-6-15 in 25 games.

As you see I can pick and choose small samples where players don't produce as well. And the point of the game is to produce - not how you do it. You can play as well as possible if you don't contribute to scoring it doesn't get you anything.

They LOVE to nitpick. LOVE it.
