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.
I always loved him and thought it was a steal of a guy for a 2nd.
The best part of this whole ordeal, is that two of my best friends (one I used to live with), are crazy Oiler fans and
him. The trolling possibilities are limitless if he keeps this play up
