When the puck is on his stick he seems to NEVER make the simple, or smart, play. He always choose to try the difficult way. Sometimes it results in some really breath taking successes, which are his highlight reel goals and assists that keep everyone happy. More often than not, however, it leads to nothing. He'd rather spin backwards, try to reach around the defender, toe drag with his back to the net, turn and fire a shot from 35 feet out than make the simple shovel pass to the open man and try to get himself open again to get the puck back. He needs to start doing things the easy way, exert less energy trying to be a one man show and exert more energy trying to get the puck back on the forecheck. These aren't my observations based on the pre-season, they are my complaints about Nash throughout his career. Electrifying player. Needs to play a team game, buy into the system and take the simple play that's there rather than try to force the one-man play that isn't.
