Neither was Brett Hull, Dave Andreychuk, John Leclair, Tim Kerr, etc - scoring forwards with some size that were never the be all end all, but solid contributors who were part of some very good teams.
What I think reasonable people expect is a player with his skill set and regular season productivity to at least carry his share of the load in a playoff run. He failed to do that this playoff season. The above players you mentioned were pretty good at it. Nash has had limited playoff experience, so I'd cut him a bit of slack. Next year? No.
It's way too early to put him Mike Gartner territory, but Nash needs to look at players like that or better yet his buddy Joe Thornton, and run like hell in the other direction.
