Not aggressively advocating a trade for Nash, just that the stats are out there to show for what we really could need.
The Rangers GPG is very high against the top teams in the league. They were shut out by Montreal, Dallas and Edmonton, so it hurts their numbers.

I agree that you need a prolific offense and a shutdown defense to win the Cup. All the last few Cup winners were top-5 in goals scored. The point is that the offense has made up for the PP shortcomings by scoring clutch goals, and it isnt a big concern to the point where you trade away a ton of assets.
