Riley Nash Appreciation Thread (Part 1)

The next-to-last round of cuts, and which forward remains?

Is it 5'6" (on skates) bust Zach Boychuk?

Is it overrated perennial 30 point AHL "scorer" Drayson Bowman?

Is it Jerome "On waivers again" Samson?

No, it's the future of the franchise, Riley "I Am ****ing Awesome" Nash.

Many doubted me when I predicted Nash would rise to the top this year, but Nash has exceeded even my expectations by doing it before the season has even begun. By the first day of training camp, it was clear that it was Nash who had done the work in the summer, unlike Zach Boychuk who spent all summer eating Cheetos and watching Oprah. Once only possessing tantalizing, generational skill, Nash has now brought the work ethic and conditioning along with it to make his talents impossible to deny.

Sure, Jerome Samson and Zach Boychuk will score their point-a-game in the AHL (with Bowman scoring his customary .5PPG). But they'll be doing that for the next ten years, whereas Riley Nash will become Brandon Sutter 2.5, only with better vision and less unsightly facial hair.

Behold, the future. Riley Nash.
