Truly elite positional players do not get shut down in the playoffs. The injury conspiracy theory is one thing, but I've seen a few posters throw their hands up saying they're double-teaming Nash and thats all there is to it. You think the league's elite dont get double-teamed too?
Then I guess Alexander Ovechkin isn't elite either since he's been shut down as well.

I've been terribly disappointed with Nash so far in the POs, but saying he cannot be elite because he was shut down rings false to me.

An elite player can be shut down for short streches, but cannot in a larger sample. A playoff series is too small a sample to prove/disprove anything.
