I have doubts he will ever put the team on his back so to speak. Not too much different than Gaborik to be honest, although I think Nash is actually the better overall player in terms of controlling the play.

In the playoffs I'd certainly like to see someone more assertive, someone who looks like they really want it and are going to battle to get it. Not sure I saw much of that sort of drive from Nash in these past playoffs but I am not going to write him off yet. Might just need to be surrounded by a team who is all on the same page to bring it out of him and I'd say neither Columbus or the Rangers last year were exactly that.
