He needs to learn how he can adapt as a player in the post season, hopefully he got some of that figured out this year, considering it accounted for 75% of his total playoff experience. Hopefully he continues to learn this year and the coaching staff helps him apply different tactics to his game, better suited for a tight game.
I agree.

He'd be well served to study how Jagr adapted his game later on in his career. Using that big body to shield the puck and control play in the trenches.

Nash isn't very good at that now considering his size and skill. Most of his creating comes off the rush.
