Why Nash should never be a Sens

2011:

1- Foward Mike Richards (27 yo, 14 goals, 16 assists, 30 points, 52 gp)

acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers for:

Wayne Simmonds: (23 yo, 22 goals, 17 assists, 39 points, 59 gp) + Highly touted prospect Brayden Schenn (20 yo, 8 goals, 3 assits, 11 points, 31 gp)

2- Foward Jeff Carter (27 yo, 15 goals, 10 assists, 25 points, 39 gp)

acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers for:

Jakub Voracek: (22yo, 10 goals, 23 assists, 33 points, 58gp) + Sean Couturier (18yo, 10 goals, 11 assists, 21 points, 55 gp) + 3rd round pick

Those are just two recent exemple of Nash-like trade and I could put out several others that are even less pretty.

Trade for Nash would require way more than what Columbus and LA gave away to get Carter and Richards, which means that trade would seriously put a dagger in our rebuild plan.

That trade would add a 7,8 million cap hit per year through 2018

I think It's an high price to pay for a guy that has reached the 70 points mark once in 9 years as an nhler.

Many people think that with a premium centerman, nash could put out 50 goals seasons but who really knows?? Dustin penner was seen as a 50 goals scorer at some point too. Are you really willing to pay 7,8m for a player that need another one to perform??

We don't have scoring problems this year and likely won't be concerned about that aspect of the game for the years to come with prospects like: Silfverberg, Stone, Prince, Zibanejad, to name only those, coming up. Will we have enough cap space to give all those guys their fair chances to play on the team for the years to come with Nash eating 7,8m through 2018?

Personally, I'd rather bet on one of our prospects to pan out than pay the the sky and the earth to get Nash.
