Nash at 7.8 in NY, whats the verdict thus far?
Hes supposed to take that next step as a player here, right? Hes in pretty elite company with that cap hit. Wouldnt we expect elite production? He is now the go-to guy on the team (depending on who you ask)
As Antithesis already pointed out, Gaborik at UFA cost of 7.5/no assets > Nash at RFA cost of 7.8/assets.
Nash is primarily a goal scorer, a former 40 goal guy whos numbers have declined steadily since. Im still holding out that he will eventually bust out and get to 35-40 at some point, because after 15 games, its all you can do.
Like I said before, ive never ever seen someone who doesnt score given so much sluck as Nash, especially in NY.
I love the way Nash plays. Im just pointing the double standard out. Maybe its there because of his style of play and nothing else.
Nash has been a presence for the Rangers night in and night out. Granted, I would like to see more points (goals) from Nash, but he's averaging 4+ shots per game and leads the team in scoring and generates dangerous chances every night.
He's been everything he was advertised to be.
