Your Nash comment is just plain silly.If it wasnt for him,this team wouldnt even be in the 8th spot right now.
yes....that's true......but reality is that he has Dogged quite a few backchecks and defensive plays. And it's not just the one against Tavares in the Isles game that comes to mind. It was evident last game vs the Flyers, and even tonight a couple times against the Panthers. And I was at tonights game, paying specific attention to Nash.
I'm Nash's biggest supporter......but one has to admit he's not the most sound and responsible when it comes to the Defensive aspect of the game. Nor he should, just like Zuccarello. Both are here to create and provide Offense. The few D lapses are to be overlooked imo. I don't see Jeff Carter playing good D nor hustling back for coverage. But he has 25 Goals.
