Let's have a look at stats here. Nash is 29 ... which isn't very far from 30. He hasn't scored 40 in 4 seasons now, plus his point totals dropping constantly, not much, but they do. Which all in all is a decline by his standards.

All I am saying is, if doesn't bring it to the table this year, we can wait a long time for it. Gaborik is a non-issue here.
Which doesn't matter when you look at the games played column as well, his points per game has only dropped 3 times from 1 PPG in '05-'06 to .76 PPG in '06-'07 and 1.01 '08-'09 to .88 in '09-'10, and of course his final season in CBJ. In fact '10-'11 and '11-'12 are the only two years it's ever dropped consecutively and the assumption there is that he was completely unmotivated in CBJ. Last season was his 3rd highest in terms of PPG in a new city, and new system where he was still relied on to be the go to guy because the other two guys that were supposed to be part of a triple threat didn't show up.
