Nash is a better 1 on 1 player, and a dangled ill give him that, but what was the mentality in getting Replacing a better scorer for a worse scorer? I think we could have flipped Anisimov and Dubinsky separately for much better returns and then, if it came to it, traded Gaborik for Nash. I would have done things differently if I was Sather. Tortorella shouldn't have this much power.
But we didn't trade Gaborik for Nash. The point was for them to play and produce together. It didn't happen.
