what actually killed us is that richards and gaborik played like **** last year. the trade didnt deplete our depth, we let half of our bottom 6 go in the offseason. how is that nash's fault?
I think it's more like with the Nash trade, the Rangers lost the part of them that made them so good the year before - the hardworking, grind it out, etc. that they played that year. Dubinsky and AA played a big part of that.

Of course, what you said is very true. The way that Gaborik played and Richards played are significant factors in the regular season and post season. So is the way that Nash played in the post season, which needs to be better.

I'm still on the fence when it comes to the trade though. I guess we'll see.
