Dubi, Kreider and 1st? Nah... If I was CBJ GM I would scout Ds here and at HFD. That is what they did, probably. Kreider, 1st and Erixon and/or MDZ plus Dubi as a salary dump is more likely they'd ask...
Don't trade Dubinsky!!! He is a player who perfectly plays the game that we play here! The reason we are so good is because of our TEAM mentality and how each player plays the way the TEAM should play. Offer them Anisimov, Erixon, 1st, and a mid-level prospect. Take it or leave it
i think it would be a much wiser move for us to explore a move for carter instead of nash. that 7.8 hit will do damage in 2 years. carter will post atleast the same goal production as nash would if not more. you know carter really wants to stick it to the flyers.
Nash is locked up for a long time. This isn't a rental. He's what we hope Kreider will turn out to be.
The timing is tough though. As it stands, we're in a position to compete for the Cup for the next 2-3 years. Adding Nash at the expense of two top-six guys and a first might prove costly. Also, will be difficult to resign all the RFAs with Nash's contract (even after the subtraction of Dubinsky's contract).
Nash has 7 more years after this at a $7.8 mil cap hit. That is huge. There's going to be no free agent hunting in the off season if we trade for this guy.
Dubi is a more multi-dimensional player than Nash but what Rick does well--he does extremely well. The price tag of what it costs to get him and the price tag of his contract is a whole lot. The question is would he put us over the top?
What I'd be prepared to offer--Anisimov (rather than Dubinsky), Erixon, 2012 1st--pick any two of Thomas, Fasth, Fogarty, St. Croix. Not sure if that would be enough.
Look, if it was a rental at 7.8M that is one thing. This guy is signed to a "rest of career" contract. Do you really want another guy on the team that is going to make 7.8 per, and make it hard to sign your kids. I really don't think he fits, for a run at the cup, fine, but not for 7 more years after this one.
