Bruins give up a ton for Rick Nash

In fairness, please keep in mind what I have said here: that Rick Nash is a better hockey player than Patrick Maroon and he very well could be a better fit for Boston. I just think the Devils got a lot more bang for their buck than the Bruins.

 

I don't know.  I'm not a Maroon fan.  "Bang for buck,"  -- maybe.  In that he's cheaper.  I don't think he adds much to New Jersey.  He had a pretty good first game, though, so maybe..

  Agreed,a third for Maroon was a nice under the radar pickup for the Devils as well as adding Grabner for a 2nd. You couldn't find two players with more different skill sets (other than both are below average passers) but both fit exact needs for the Devils for cheap.

I agree.

 

The price for Nash was a bit unreal given his current skillset.

When I'm talking about "bang for the buck" I'm talking about acquisition cost. There was a night and day difference in cost between Nash and Maroon, and I don't think there is a night and day difference in what these teams should expect from these guys. He gave them a big body who can fit in with skilled players, and that's a nice thing come April. He only cost them a 3rd round pick, which I think is a fair price.

      I think Nash is at the point where you can't expect him to contribute on the scoreboard every single night. If you can temper your expectations of him to be a 20-goal scorer, and a guy who's going to get around 40 points and play good defense, then you should be excited to have him around. He's still being paid as an elite NHL player right now (until July 1st), and I think that's why people are disappointed with him. Give him a $3.5-$4.5 million contract, and everyone would love him on their tea

      This is coming with some caveats, but is only mean to illustrate a point, not draw a heavy line under it...   Rick Nash, last two seasons: 41-25-66, 1.86 Pts/60 Patrick Maroon, last two seasons: 41-31-72, 1.85 Pts/60   Rick Nash brought in a haul. Maroon, without the name or pedigree, brought a 3rd rounder in return on Deadline Day.   NOW... This is a very simple bit of analysis, and doesn't exactly dig deep, with the biggest issue being that it doesn't take in

      I still think the Bruins overpaid for Nash but I agree with @belowthegoalline (welcome to HockeyForums btw), in that Maroon doesn't get those numbers unless playing on a line with a high scoring center as in McDavid.    Nash was brought in to increase the scoring on the 2nd line with Krejci something that wasn't happening with  Spooner or Belesky on the wing.  No forward on the Bruins roster had more than 12 goals other than the those on the top line prior to the deadline.  Teams that go de
