He's probably out shopping for Gucci or at a photo shoot.

This is what I came to post. If there are any players not in shape then they better be ready to deal with Torts... I would not want to be that guy.

He was by far the best player on the ice for that. It was a wide open pond-hockey style game and Hank was making save after save. If that was any indication, I'm not worried.

New York Rangers ‏@NYRangers

Torts on Rick Nash: "As anxious as he is, I am double that to get with him and get going here"

Steve Zipay ‏@stevezipay

Rick Nash, according to Torts, will fit in easily, calls him "low-maintenance"

Steve Zipay ‏@stevezipay

The newer players, Torts says, have been told by returnees what to expect in camp and conditioning levels

Hank has had a couple of seasons where he was REALLY slow out of the gate. 1 for sure. 06-07, he started off brutally.

So great to see pictures of the team on ice. Can't wait to hear all of the incoming reports from Torts' conditioning sessions.

Yeah definitely remember that. He's self-admittedly a slow started. Seems to have a couple stinkers in those first few games but hits his stride 5-10 games in. Last year the first couple of home games against Toronto and Ottawa I remember he looked off. Safe to say he righted that ship pretty quick.

How happy must Nash have been to pull on that Rangers sweater? Or any non-CBJ sweater for that matter.

Hopefully that doesn't happen this year. We can't afford a slow start. Not with this shortened season. We gotta hit the ground running.

Agreed 2k2. But judging by his interview he seems more happy that it's a rangers uniform. The guy sounded like a little kid on christmas. He just wants to play with everyone on this team.

Anyone have any guesses as to who may be brought in to camp on a tryout? My guesses:

Jesse Winchester
Kristian Huselius
Radek Dvorak
Mike Commodore

Finally get to see Nash in a Rangers jersey on the ice. It's a practice jersey, but still. I'm so excited to see what this team can do with Nash. Like a kid on Christmas.

This makes too much sense. Nash connection, Swedish, Sather reclamation project after his injury. Bringing him to camp would be a smart move.

It will be interesting to see how quickly the Rangers and the rest of the league's teams integrate their new faces with an abbreviated training camp and shortened schedule.

Do not like these changes for Rupp and Stralman. Annoying numbers now for both. Just doesn't fit for me.

Much less annoying than Fedotenko taking Christensen's 26 while he was still on the team, though.

Amazingly, appears NHL 13 had the scoop on this cause I noticed yesterday both numbers had changed and wondered the reason behind it.

Toronto and Ottawa he was bad, but the first few games he was good. I'm not sure if last year was a good example. A couple of bad games early doesn't mean early slump. Lately he hasn't been bad early in the season. There was also some Decembers when he was bad. Last year it was March-April. Thankfully he came back to life in the playoffs. Wasn't great in the Devils series though.
