I prefer that to

Hagelin-Stepan-Nash
Clowe-Richards-Zuccarello
Dorsett-Brassard-Pyatt
Powe-Boyle-Asham

2nd lineup is absolutely dreadful compared to the 1rst IMO. #1 is way more balanced and probably fits team identity more.

edit: Thanks KreiderTheGlider
This assumes that CBJ would have made the Gaborik trade exactly the same way without ever trading Nash. I doubt that would have happened.

Also, it's easy to say this team has looked bad in 2 playoff games so this other lineup would be better. I bet that if that other lineup were 0-2 against the Caps, this thread would be about how we should have gotten Nash when we had the chance. It's easy to criticize a choice when the other option will never, ever come to fruition.

Personally, I'd make both trades again every time.
