This is my stance as well.

The problem with the people saying, "I told you so!" about Nash is that they immediately use his tenure here as proof that this team would be better off without him, which is not only impossible to know, but also unlikely.

A lot of things ran that '11-'12 team off the rails the following year and it wasn't just Nash related. In fact Nash was one of two bright spots last year.

It's sad to think that if Nash does not justify his being traded for before he moves on from this club, that people will use it as an excuse for years to come as to why the Rangers returned to the "Dark Ages" and destroyed a winning environment. An exaggerated and perpetually unverifiable claim. Reading it for the next decade should be fantastic.
