I don't see the Nash trade in a vacuum as being the problem. In culmination the other moves or non moves prior and after the trade are the issue as far as I see it.

Nash is not that player who can put a team on his back, he needs a supporting cast. Rangers have given him a declining Richards (which in my opinion was the poorest move), a 1st/2nd line tweener center in Stepan, and some speed but not necessarily play makers on his other wing. On D they gave him or anyone else Del Zotto to get him the puck, usually by trying to pass it 100 feet through 3 defenders.

Then they filled the rest of the team with players who refuse to back up each other in the toughness department and they get the Nash they have, an injured or scared of being injured shell of his best days.
