funny that many people are saying the same... but lets forget contracts for a minute...
sedin sedin nash
how can any canucks fan NOT want a legit, goal scoring, top line power forward? seriously... and to top it off, hes CANADIAN - and not only canadian, he has the talent to be a shoe-in for team canada who has ridiculously stacked offence. we want to get bigger? we want to get tougher? we want the sedins back to 100 points? face it - we want nash.
anyhow just my 2 cents.. its not the end of the world if he signs elsewhere, i just find it silly that so many canuck fans are like "nash? no thanks i dont like his contract" ... well it must be the contract because there isnt really much not to like about rick nash..
and since i've stayed away from nash threads i'll make this point here...
iginla - 7 million cap hit
malkin - 8.7 million cap
thornton - 7 million
eric staal - 8.25 million
HMMM looks to me like if you want to keep an all-star power forward you have to shell out some moneys.
It's not about his contract, it's about Columbus asking for the moon in return for Nash, which is exactly why he hasn't been traded yet. Any team acquiring Nash is probably going to come out on the losing end of the deal.
