Given that Pavelski's at one hell of a peak while Nash is slumping, I'm sure that would indeed look quite ridiculous.

You'd think, after Tyutin & Fritsche for Zherdev and Backman, that Sather would have learned better than to negotiate with Howson.

Rick Nash simply isn't that guy.
That's definitely concussion/injury fear. He wasn't nearly consistent enough about fighting for pucks when he played here, but it wasn't as though he abstained entirely.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
