None of those things, he will have the luxury of having in San Jose. Thornton is going to have the puck most of the time. McLellan will not shelter his top players. Those are two very big reasons why Nash will not score 40+ goals here.

People seriously do not understand how Rick Nash has played in Columbus to get those numbers he got. People severely do not understand that that style of play is not transferable to a team with talent. People oversimplify this thought process by believing that production is linear or transferable when it isn't.
Hmmm...yeah I guess you're right. I guess team Canada never had any talent at all when he played for them alongside Crosby and Iginla and won a gold medal. Nope, no talent there at all I guess...
