The hating on Nash is confusing me. What player are you guys watching?

What Nash brings that Gabby (and most other players) doesn't bring is precisely that he can dominate play in the offensive zone for entire shifts. No, he doesn't crush people the way Lindros did. Yes, you'd like him to exert his will like that a little more frequently. And yes, it can sometimes be frustrating that he hasn't scored as much as you'd like from those shifts. But, he can still take over and force a whole team to focus on trying to defend him in a way that few players can.

There is of course concern that his game will be negatively impacted by the recent concussions, but I for one am very much looking forward to adding him to this mix - a healthy Nash playing in this system would be a lot of fun to watch.
