For their entire careers, Rick Nash, Marian Gaborik, and Brad Richards played with pretty much nobody. When Richards was winning his Conn Smythe I believe he was playing with Fedotenko and maybe Andreychuk?

Nash played with a traffic cone and a bottle of zima.

Gaborik played with pretty much nobody his career as well. He scored 40 goals his first year here...who did he play with? Dubinsky & Prospal? Can't remember.

Either way, these guys are used to basically carrying lines by themselves...Richards probably less so since he's more of a passer than scorer, so you put him with 2 guys who aren't really the best passers in the world in Callahan & Kreider (they aren't bad, but they're at their best when they are selfish players shooting the puck).
