If he bounces back and plays like he did in March for most of the year, then I think Richie may be the best out of the players listed. Smart player, good vision, nasty slapshot, scores clutch goals. He had 41 assists during a down year and could easily eclipse 60 assists when he's on his game.

Gaborik would be a very close second. Great goalscorer, but he does tend to be streaky and lacks creativity. He's not very good at protecting at the puck and gets stripped of the puck easily when going 1-on-1.

Nash, we'll see, I'm hesitant to judge him until I see how he plays as Ranger. I think E. Kane and Benn have surpassed him as far as power forwards go, they use their size more effectively than Nash has lately. Torts should get Nash to engage more physically, though, in all aspects of the game... hitting, blocking shots, etc.
