I feel like Nash will end up with Stepan and Richards will continue with Gaborik.
Wonder which line Nash will play on with the Rangers? Most expect him to step in with Brad Richards, a playmaker extraordinaire. My hunch is he’ll fit best with Derek Stepan, but – as a guy who sees the Western Conference almost exclusively – I’m not entirely keyed in on Stepan’s game. Nash needs the puck to be successful. He doesn’t find space in the offensive zone and rip one-timers; he hauls it to net. This will be interesting.
Richards like carrying the puck and Gaborik is the opposite of Nash - he's most effective if he doesn't have the puck for more than a few seconds; when he's ready to shoot.
