Today is the five year anniversary of Rick Nash being traded to the New York Rangers. The deal included many pieces that have changed a lot since that day.

It’s hard to believe it’s already been five years of Rick Nash as a New York Ranger. His tenure has had many ups and downs that have made for a memorable, unfinished run.

Nash came to the Rangers in a trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Rangers sent Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon, and the Rangers 2013 first round pick (Kerby Rychel) in exchange for Rick Nash, Steve Delisle, and the Blue Jackets’ 2013 third round pick (Pavel Buchnevich).

Lots of good came from this trade on both ends. Here is a look at which players or teams got the best of this deal.
