He's also averaging like 4+ shots on goal per game
Which tells me the goals will come, unless he is the unluckiest guy alive. I honestly understand why he said he was similar to Higgins but it's not the case. Higgins appeared to be in on everything that year and just completely snakebitten, but I think we all know that is just the kind of player Higgins is, up until last season he wasn't even close to approaching his good MTL years.
Nash's shooting % is currently like 4% average over his career is around 12% so he really should have 3 goals and 4 assists right now

I've never called him "awful" that I can recall, but I know I have bashed him for a supposed lack of consistency. The guy is a ghost (not in the bad way) who just quietly puts up points when he isn't having an explosive night and then you look at the stats and he's on a crazy roll. He is scary good, especially on this team when it gets going.
i put Ferriero because he did have a good game for a player that got traded, called up and played in the AHL last night all in one week. didnt look out of place
This! I picked Ferreiro because he played pretty damn good for a AHL aquisition, Gabby for his goals and Nash for being all over the place, killing penalties single-handedly and bringing so much more to our top line
Can't say enough about the GNR line. Only thing I'm concerned about is being able to "double shift" them in back to back games. We seem to be a one line team right now. Benn looked good out there and that line with him, Hags and Cally were going in with nice speed. 4th line still scares the crap out of me when they're on the ice though.
I am watching the rerun. With 13 minutes left I am feeling extremely sorry for myself, I got a cold, alot to do at work, the kids are disturbing me and so forth. I can't stand it any more so I flipped on the computer and saw "5-2", and I felt even more sorry for myself since I now missed a fantastic come from behind win.
It feels better now though. This was an important win. You do not want to be that team that everyone knows they can beat if they just show up and don't do any misstake.
can we please stop opening the games when we have momentum with 2 ****ing pointless fights? it's CLEARLY not working in our favor-- we've yet to gain momentum from one this season. please stop, mike rupp and arron asham: we all know you're big tough men. we're impressed. we promise
