Yes and no.
NYR are a better team, with more depth, so he might not be getting as many minutes. Tortorella might even spread his firepower by putting Nash on the 2nd line.
They also play a different system. Tortorella values defense. The rangers were 11th in the NHL for scoring last year, but 3rd for goals allowed. Whereas the Blue Jackets were 3rd to last for goals allowed, but 7th to last for goals scored, i.e. they played an offensive style.
