Rick Nash has never played with that type of linemates like Heater has. I would agree that if Nash was in SJ playing with Joe he would put up 40g.
Something Heater never accomplished while he was here
I completely agree with you. If Heatley wasn't scoring goals, he wasn't doing much defensively. Nash scored 40 goals in 08-09 with the Blue Jackets! That's without Thornton, and 30 goals last year, also without Thornton. So how can any of you people (not you realallstar10) sit there and say he won't score more than 40 goals playing alongside Thornton?? I can't believe how many of you people think Nash is overrated. Sure is contract may be heavy but if DW can make a good deal that's affordable, I'd say Nash is worth the risk.
