And it's not as if Nash was playing in a system that dissimilar from what we do here. From what I remember of the BJ's under Scott Arniel, they played an aggressive forechecking scheme that required a lot of board work, and then asked everyone to get back quickly to block a lot of shots in front. They obviously weren't successful with it, but I think Nash was being asked to do a lot of the same things he'll be doing here.
