That was a horrible return for Rick Nash on and off the ice. Rangers are glad for it and would be struggling a lot on the ice without Rick Nash.

Dubinsky won't even be of note in a year or two. Anisimov is presently overrated as well. I think more people trying to like the deal somehow. Phenomenon happens all the time.

The rule of trades generally is the best player involved wins the trade. From a Columbus perspective you just don't make this trade. This I imagine was there version of the RR trade although Nash always played well and was always valuable.
