right but sterio made it sound like anyone hated on him simply because he was a ranger, which isn't the case since an unbiased person (and even ranger fans) would admit he has been a disappointment.

I just wanted to pile on the hate for a Rag. But yeah, him getting $7.8M aav for 60-70 points per year is atrocious. I guess Parise gets similar $$ for similar numbers though.

strictly based on his contract, he's one heck of a player and injuries has a part with that too

my original statement was only that Nash shouldn't make team canada. You somehow twisted that to have me saying he is trash since he's a ranger. I am saying he is not trash but he is a disappointment on that contract, and most ranger fans would agree with me.

there are players on our other rivals who I would have taken before Nash for Canada, so it's not a rivalry thing. I apologize for any confusion...

it's not even the money, it's what they gave up to get him, which while none of the individual pieces were spectacular, their team identity was lost.

Your original statement... did i quote you or something? you're not the only one saying that and acting that way. I was not even referring to you

That was a pretty strange swap. Nash for Anisimov+Dubinsky+Erixon+1st then they trade Gaborik away for Brassard+Dorsett+Moore. Talk about a sideways move. Was a slight downgrade if anything. Should have just swapped Gaborik for Nash and called it a day.

I apologize if I assumed but going back over the Olympic thread I was the only one who brought up Nash and you responded directly to me there.

Paul Stasny is my player... I think the guy we can acquire at a reasonable price  and he would help our offense...

 

Yakupov is an awesome player... But not sure about his attitude...

 

Stastny is a low profile, good player who put ups some big numbers year after years.

 

(BUT he is UFA)

The obvious choice is to pick Crosby because he's amazing.

If there is a player out there who epitomizes the type of player I wish we had on the team it would be David Backes. Good lead, super competitive, hard worker, physical, good scoring touch. Kind of a rich mans David Clarkson. I think he would complement the type of guys and the system we have really well.

I think it's important that it would be a player capable of playing several types of systems.  I think Landeskog would have been a nice fit with the Devils.
