Some players take you there, others step up once arrived. If Nash is the #2 or #3 guy he doesn't have to carry a team in the playoffs.

Similar criticisms were leveled against Joe "334 points in 3 years" Thornton, and he's only lately shaking them off. But it's not like even then he wasn't integral to anything the Sharks could possibly hope to accomplish.

Then yet again Thornton is clearly a step above Nash/Turgeon/Housley
