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.
I would be extremely pissed and totally dumbfounded if we made this move.
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
yeah, im with this gentleman. no trades...no big ones, at least. this team is great and on path to get better. maybe anisimov could go. but i dont like trading low. maybe an erixon could go, but he also...value will go up, most likely. stand pat. get a smyth if he's open to being traded. all good.
You're right - it is lopsided and unfair to CBJ, but the only way I want to see Nash and his overinflated contract on the Rangers is if Sather can pull off another ridiculously one sided trade al la Gomez for McDonagh.
Even on paper, trading Dubinsky for Nash barely makes this team appreciably better.
On paper, trading Dubinsky or Anisimov AND a roster D for Nash makes this team appreciably worse.
Stand pat unless we're getting a real sweetheart of a deal. You can look at doing something like this next year. Every single year we see a player like this on the market. This isn't a small window to acquire another top-line player and this is not a one year window for this team.
