Nash is too expensive. There are only a few players I'd be willing to spend 7.8 million of our cap on (Malkin, Crosby, Weber...), and Nash is definitely not in that category.

I certainly wouldn't want to give up key players like Kesler in order to acquire that contract.

Dont you remember what Columbus wants? PROVEN PROSPECTS AND ROSTER PLAYERS.

Okay, so Kesler is a superstar, he is great on faceoffs and is great in PK and PP and can "guzzle" :bigblush: up minutes. He's also $2.8m cheaper than Nash.

So those are all plusses that make him worth more, right?

But for Columbus, they could give a :canucks: about the cap-hit right now. They need a center, yes, but they'd rather a younger prospect. Weren't they asking for an NHL ready Top prospect, a high end roster player, an ahl prospect AND at least a 1st.

Even if Kesler counts as high end roster player + AHL prospect, a 2nd, and no top prospect wouldn't cut it.

Apparently SJS put packages together with 1sts and marleau and a prospect, and they countered by asking for couture too. Kesler doesn't make up for that
