Best thing for a team is getting a top talent in the draft. Then you have the player for many years, over the best period of their career. Then over that entire productive period - maybe 8 years for a skater, longer for a goalie, you can build the rest of the team. And it's easier because you only need to acquire complementary talent - you don't need an older star be the team's best player.
Nash is one of the better players in the league, but we don't really have a long window with him at his best.
People say the draft is a crapshoot - they're absolutely right - but getting 30-year-old players is also a crapshoot. Even if they were great, you don't know how fast they lose it.
