Jonathan Toews is not a factor in this situation. Rich Nash is a factor. How much of a factor is certainly debatable.
Straw man argument. Nash coming to the Rangers made Gaborik and Richards suck all of a sudden? That's pretty much the reason we're in 8th place right now, that and our bottom six is not performing well at all.

Nash has no effect on Richards and Gaborik, they are veterans after all. He also doesn't play in the bottom six so you can't blame him for that. In fact he seems to get dragged down when he plays with those two.

I'll also add that teams like Columbus are bound to overachieve at some point when mired in failure for so long, look at Florida last year. That's the parity that exists in the NHL.
