Edge- I definitely agree.
And in typical NY fashion people are extremely fast forgetting what Nash did for us last season. I've followed this team for a little more than 20 years, during those years 3-4 guys has put a team on their back and that is what Nash did last season when he put a team on his back and carried it alone (Hank did not have that great of a year last season during the regular season).
We should also note that Nash is not a good PP player, never will be. A PP is all about passing tempo and being able to handle being pressured.
Getting Nash was however a cap dump.
When you summerize what we got, I would never reverse the trade. We gave up two decent but almost regularly struggling 2-3 line forwards, an offensive D without PP ability and a first for a player that takes up a ton of space on the ice and can score goals by himself and break things open.
I only fear that the insane pressure Nash is facing in NY could break him.
