Putting Nash on Stepan's wing opens up a TON of space for Stepan to make plays with the puck. As much as I like Zuccarello, Nash is 10x the player he is. Stepan is the better than Richards at this point, so he's earned the right to play with our best winger - I love what AV has done thus far, for the most part, but I don't know why he didn't put these players together earlier. Kreider-Stepan-Zuccarello was a decent line, but it always made more sense to put Nash on that line, when healthy.
