Let me clarify, the Richards-Toews-Nash line was the best line in Vancouver. Rick Nash was one of Canada's best players. He was the best player on the ice in the Quarter Final thrashing of the Russians. After that game, Igor Larionov said the same thing, and I agreed with him. He was a force that game. Nash should and will be there in 2014. You might disagree, but playing for Columbus, which has been one of the worst teams in the NHL, does have a negative effect on your stats and overall drive. At least in Toronto, you are playing in a hockey Mecca. In Columbus, it is nowhere near a hockey mecca, and the Blue Jackets are dead last in coverage. That is the difference. Nash playing in New York will be lights out. He will have great teammates to play with, and playing in a big market in New York will bring the best out of him.
