His Jr. resume was impressive, but there are many players who didn't even make the bigs with better scoring rates than Nash.
He led the team in goals, but what fails to get mentioned is that he only had 16 assists that season.
I prefer Gaborik over Nash as well, but your one particular fear seems to have no basis in reality.
Sure it does. It's the 'Jason Blake syndrome'. Someone has to score on bad teams.
