The Rangers have never(I repeat, never) had a guy with Nash's skillset in their history. That doesn't necessarily mean that Rick Nash is a given to pot 50 goals in a full season but the time and space he creates on the ice because of his size, wingspan, and speed will make a player like Gaborik that much better and freer to do his thing.

Trading for Nash was a no brainer for us but, unfortunately, we need more big bodied productive players on the roster if we are truly going to get to the next level and win a cup.

I did not know either. But my Islander friend did. We stole this guy. I liked Anisimov but Dubinsky looks like a third liner and Ericson couldnt even make the Columbus roster. I smell a bust in Erickson. Kudos to Sather he has made brilliant moves. Gomez for McDonaugh Hahaha. and now Nash for basicly Anisimov.
