Not getting the bang for buck from our Big 3 on the score sheet. Plain & simple. There are no excuses here. Guys are getting paid extremely well to score and are not putting up acceptable numbers. YET. I readily add.

Nash has played well, Gaborik so-so and Richards has been mediocre so far IMO. But we should be getting close to the competitive point production in the league as opposed to the salary they get. Otherwise these investments are not viable.

0 PP goals for these 3 star players, with over 2,5 hours of combined PP time and during 39 different Power play opportunities, including countless 5 on 3s, is simply not acceptable. It is a disaster! Anyone disagreeing here is simply delusional.
Well, I think we've overpaid Richards without a doubt and I don't think he will perform to his contract, but probably something closer to a $5.5-6M deal, which is fine as long as he does not suddenly regress, considering we got him for free. UFA deals always cost more.

Nash has been the game breaker we needed and has been without a doubt our best forward this year, he's lived up to his contract and more goals will come. He's also been our best player in regards to puck possession, playmaking and work along the boards. He just needs more guys to play at the same level.

Gabby has been up and down and needs to do better.

And it's clear our PP is unacceptable. But the blame doesn't just go on our big three. It should turn around and if they'd all have 1-2 more PP points each they'd be all be at a ppg, which in my opinion is excellent production.
