If either of those two players were so essential to our chemistry that we had none left by replacing them with Nash and a free agent, then we didn't have any worthwhile to begin with.
We directly lost 2 NHL players from it. You don't get to subtract 1 from that number. That doesn't make any sense. We lost two of our guys from that trade directly. Then comes Nash with his bloated cap hit and we lose more guys indirectly from the trade due to free agency.
