I think that Nash is a good fit with Richards and Toews. Nash is a left shot who likes to play the RW, so playing RW with Richards and Toews allows him to do that.
Morrow at LW could also be good with Getzlaf and Perry, both of whom have been ghosts thus far. Morrow should be able to get the puck low, create energy on the fore check, and help with crashing the net.
Yeah, I noticed that too (maybe around mid-3rd period). It looks like Toews-Richards-Nash line will be getting matched-up against Malkin-Ovechkin-Semin, so having Nash on that line provides more speed than Morrow, along with similar size and physicality. Plus, Nash provides a more credible offensive threat than does Morrow, which will be extremely important if that line logs big minutes tomorrow. A good move, if Babcock follows-through. And, totally agree with your thoughts on moving Morrow up to the Getzlaf line.
