Riley Nash Appreciation Thread

I know I'm going to take heat for this, but I focused a lot on Riley Nash while at the game on Tuesday night. And at least two or three times, the way he went about his business reminded me of ... Brandon Sutter.

He's very solid along the boards and almost always comes out with the puck, he's very good with his reach and stickwork, and always aware of the entire situation on the ice, etc. He's a better playmaker offensively, but not as good a shooter, and he's not quite as big. But what they bring to the table is very similar.

Obviously, I'm not saying they are clones and we won't miss Sutter. But I am feeling a lot better about our third line with the way Nash is starting to come into his own.
