The 2012-13 New York Rangers would not have made the playoffs had they not done that trade. The decline primarily stemmed from poor shooting luck and the surprising sharp decline of play from Richards and Gaborik.

The two trades with Columbus is a big net plus for the Rangers IMO.
I agree for sure.

I saw a rerun of one of our games against Tampa the other day (it was from early February). Nash was on fire. You have to go back to JJ's absolute best games and then Leetch in his prime to find better showings than like 10 of the games Nash has last season.

Its easy to get stuck in how the PO's looked. Nash say that he wasn't hurt. But I don't know, something was going on for sure. He was acting very weird whenever he lost a footing (twisting and turning before hitting the boards and what not). Dubi and AA together makes as much as Nash does. Its not like we took on money either.
