speculation is fine, but to make a case in retrospect, is pure hindsight, and that's what i think mr.kershaw is guilty of quite frequently...

Nash was brought in to be another scoring threat alongside Gaborik.
I'm sure NYR management didn't see the cap dropping to 63m this year. i think they envisioned keeping Gabs, and maybe resigning him when his contract was up at lesser $$$....
