As far as suggesting that the consensus view of Nash's goals by Columbus fans is that they were mostly meaningless, I don't know where the OP came up with that.
Read my second post where I said it was hyperbolic... I heard it plenty of times before the trade, and someone referenced it the other day, that's where it came from.

His billing is as an offensive forward that isn't a total liability defensively, no one claims he is a checking forward/energy guy. I think the failure to realize that is definitive of people having too high of expectations or thinking all players should play similar games. I think he fits up to that just fine, just like Gaborik lives up to his billing as a one dimensional "sneaky" goal scorer.
