Nash was brought here to provide enough additional scoring to win us a cup. Not to be the #1 goal scoring threat. That is Marian's job.
Gaborikis one of the top 5 goal scoring threats in the league. As of right now, Nash is #12, maybe #11 is you're being harsh to Bobby Ryanafter a bad year.
If you are saying Nash is only as good as Bobby Ryan, I think I have to question that.
Nash is a legit 40 goal scorer.
He's a different TYPE of player than Gaborik, but I think he's every bit as adept at lighting the lamp.
