08:28 AM ET 05.11 | It's natural for some to wonder What if? when it comes to the Rangers and Rick Nash. Would [Glen Sather's] mistake-filled tenure of running the Rangers have been corrected in this strange playoff spring by completing the deal he worked so hard on and couldn't find a way to make happen? With [Nash] in the Rangers lineup, you have to believe there would not have been a seventh game in Round 1 and, quite likely, there wouldn't be a seventh game Saturday here at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers made all kinds of offers for the available scoring winger, just not an offer the Columbus Blue Jackets were willing to take. ... With Rick Nash in Ranger colours, there would be no seventh game.

Uh huh. With Callahan, Richards or Girardi gone there'd likely be no 7th game either. You go, Toronto Sun.

I actually thought about that. Look at the two main guys Columbus wanted...Dubie, who is out injured...and krieder, who has not done much in this series.
The ever present chemistry issue though, is hardest to call, but Gaborik, Callahan, Richards and Nash would have looked quite formidable on paper anyway

Just when you think the Toronto media can't get any dumber.........voila, here they come again.

well, as he's only played for the team he is on now...
Who knows what he could do if he had some people around him.
Takes a lot of pressure off when you don't have to be "the guy"

I guess anyone can be a sportswriter these days after seeing this article.

The New York Post could have run this just as easily....The Sun scooped them!

Didn't they want Del Zotto also? I mean Dubinsky couldn't be one of the big pieces to any trade could he.

your disdain (and lately...mine too...the guy had been playing like crapola) for Dubie notwithstanding...yes, they wanted him. He's young, signed and when he plays, pretty good

Nash could potentially flourish on a team where he's not the captain. Sometimes guys are just not made out to be captain. Nash probably would play a hell of a lot better with that pressure off his back.

Nash actually played extremely well once he knew that he wasn't going to be traded.
