Well, I would say it's an absolutely overwhelming win for the Rangers.

But you're certainly right about your second point.... When the face of your franchise is traded, you get a young player who you can make the new face of the franchise. What did Columbus get? Brandon Dubinksy? Tim Erixon? Just terrible. I feel horrible for CBJ fans.

Now there's a prospect and a 3rd coming from CBJ?!

Howson, please step down. You're ruining this franchise.

Luongo may now get a 3rd rounder, tops. Of course Nucks will have to throw in a 5th.

People are mentioning the Flyers as a threat?

LMAO

6-0 against them this season, 3 of them without Marc Staal.

No goaltending, no defense depth. Their forwards will get shutdown by our elite defense again.

of course it doesn't.

The irrational hate for the Rangers is in mid-season form. good to see. makes me feel like camp is just days away.

On the downside, Howson didn't get anywhere close to what he wanted for Nash. On the plus side, if Anisimov times his rifle shot with the Columbus cannon well, we might just have the greatest goal celebration ever.

How Murray is the only GM in the league that can't rip off Howson is beyond my understanding.

Gotta think Cody Goloubef is the AHL defenseman coming with Nash.

He played at Wisconsin with McDonagh and Stepan.

I was just joking, but I also haven't read the 38 pages of the thread, and still I would instinctively somehow know that after 38 pages, I wouldn't be the first to think that.

Howson might be a terrible GM, but this was a very tough situation for him to be in. Once a player makes it known they don't want to be there but have a certain number of teams they want to go to, a GM loses a lot of leverage. Add in Nash's contract and his up and down play (average for a supposed elite player) and the Jackets just weren't going to get the king's ransom many assumed. They got some good (not great) ready to contribute talent, a good d-man prospect, a first rounder, and saved a bunch of dough. They also remove a distraction from the team (sending Nash to the east helps).

Except all 29 teams who neglected to trade this sort of value for Nash.

Still got $13m left. Probably round $8m after re-signings.

this isn't as bad of a trade for columbus as some people think.

anisimov and dubinsky are relatively young (24, 26), 40+ point, two-way centers who have their strengths and weaknesses.

dubinsky is a leader-type who won't back down from anyone and isn't afraid of playing in the dirty areas. columbus fans are going to like what he brings to the table.

anisimov is two years younger and still developing. he's highly skilled and has a big frame. he's probably going to score more points out of the two, but he still has a tendency to lower his head and get plastered on the open ice.

who knows what erixon will become, but he's got the ingredients to become a really good player.

either way, while i think the rangers come away with the best player, i think columbus still comes out a better team than they were.

Vezina Winner vs. Uneeverse.

I agree with you that Flyers have better forwards, but not chance they have better defence or goaltending.

Top to bottom, NYR are the best team in the NHL.

Rangers, Flyers, Kings. That order, IMO.

I think Quebec City might want to hold out for a better franchise.
