O'Byrne - Nash - the Cornell pairing.

Talent Analysis
Nash is a smart, offensive-minded defenseman who possesses a nice combination of size, mobility and puck skills. He uses his 6'3 frame and long reach to great advantage, particularly in protecting or stripping the puck. He's also not afraid to join the offensive play. Defensively, he is solid and keeps things pretty simple. Nash has great poise and patience with the puck, but what sets him apart from many young defensemen is in his timely passing ability, particularly on power plays. Though he skates quite well for a big man, Nash needs to work on having quicker feet. Developing speed and strength are two areas that will be paramount to his future success.

He's 6'3 205 lbs.

6"3 206lbs Left defensemen

ChuckyToGally 03-30-2010 03:13 PM

Too thin... :shakehead

I want this 61 years old Morrison guy!

overlords 03-30-2010 03:14 PM

can't wait to hear what montreal, thief or whitesnake think of this guy.

edit: he's already played 4 years in the ncaa, i assume that means they want him in the ahl next season?

MarkovsKnee 03-30-2010 03:15 PM

Sounds like a smart pick-up. Good size too. Hopefully he's a left-handed shot. Apparently he was at the Habs development camp in 2009 so they've been scouting him for awhile.

Also, he's the older brother of Edmonton Oilers' 1st rd pick Riley Nash. Cool.

Hopefully not, we only get a pick compensation if we try to sign him and fail. Might as well sign fischer too IMO.

Forsead 03-30-2010 03:22 PM

This seem to be an interesting pickup I would like to know if people here have seen him play he has a good sizeand got some nice stats.

Andrighetto Fabolous 03-30-2010 03:25 PM

We've got lots of skilled offensive D prospects but not many with size, haven't seen him play before but this is the type of D prospect we are in need of.

not a contract expert here, but we could offer him 2 year deal but at minimum salary in both the nhl and ahl so if he rejected it we get our 2nd round pick in 2011. don't even know if its possible...

for the poster above yes he's a LD and on cornell website he's listed at 6"3 218

JHabs 03-30-2010 03:25 PM

Wow looks great, best case scenario I'd say hes a solid Powerplay/top 4 D. A 0 risk high reward move by the Habs, I like it.

I don't know contracts that well but I assume there's a certain amount you offer first round picks, not sure though. Besides that, honestly, you offer the guy ANYTHING, and he'd take it. If he's that much of a bust, why would he walk from a salary? If he's not a bust, why let him go? Works both ways.

Why? They'd be stupid not to see what he does once he leaves Minnesota.

Yeah and perhaps Hamilton will lose some dmen for next year so there willl be place for both Fischer and Nash.

maybe Fischer think he's better than that and can get more elsewhere.. anyway i still think the habs will sign him

number 11 03-30-2010 03:37 PM

nice, keep picking up big mobile d-men

beowulf 03-30-2010 03:38 PM

Nice size and seems to have good potential I am liking this one now let's see what he can do.

HabsFanInTO 03-30-2010 03:43 PM

He likes to score 2 goals a year.

Kjell Dahlin 03-30-2010 03:44 PM

I never saw him play but it seems like a very good signing.

----------------

An August 28, 2007 insidecollegehockey.com report (extract):

"... Cornell assistant coach Brent Brekke on Brendon Nash: "He really matured in the second half of the season and took on added ice time with the injuries on our defense and especially to Jared Seminoff. People know about his puck-moving ability and his hockey sense, but we were please with how he played defensively and on the penalty kill." ..."

RoyBoyCoy 03-30-2010 03:51 PM

Seems like possibly a bigger Gorges. Solid play, keeps things simple :dunno:

EDIT: Oh and he's Riley's brother
