JvR is more of a player that boxes out the front of the net rather than crash into it. He's very hard to knock off the puck.
Nash and JvR both play a perimeter game that drive their coaches crazy. Everyone referring to Nash as a true power forward is almost as annoying as Derek jeter winning a Gold Glove.

Nash does use his size more than JvR but he still plays a soft game for a man of his size and strength. There are some obvious similarities between the two players and I think that referring to JvR as a poor man's Nash is very accurate.
