Rick Nash, AS I POINTED OUT EARLIER, useshis body to bull his way with control of the puck.

He doesn't use his speed consistently to win races to pucks and be a pest like Hagelin and Callahan do. Different players for different roles.
No, he is not as shifty of course. But he has strength, speed and balance that he can use.

Being unexperienced and needing to learn is one thing, but what happend to the energy he had last season?

Id like to see Kreider hold the puck and use his physical strenght and speed to create something.

As for now he seems very timid and snake bitten. Not sure if thats because of Torts or not, but he needs to get over it. Getting his mind together in CT seems to be the best option rather than sitting on the bench all night waiting to get a couple of minutes per game on the ice.
