Coming from one of the league's biggest whiner and diver. Looks at the refs more than Kesler.
Doughty is actually obsessed with the Canucks. It's hilarious and sad at the same time. He's won the cup and everything but still won't stop talking about them. LA still hates us more than we hate or care about them.
Hansen has Doughty's number. He hits him all the time. Hansen tried to fight him the lineman came to Dought's rescue. I think he is right to a point i do think we should whine less hurt more. Let L.A. respond to questionable hits then call them whiners. Too bad Bitz hit Clifford and not one Kopitar or Doughty, i think you would have heard plenty of whinning then. They are the Champs you would think they would be above the fray for a while.
Nash has done his job. But Nash takes time from other players an worsens their numbers ie Gaborik. It also gutted their depth.
I'm not sure we'd get full value from Iginla for the same reasons. for every 3 points he'd bring we're going to lose 2 ie put Iginla with the Sedins: Burrows ES production drops, Kesler's PP production disappears. Otoh we'd get far more value from another centre, improve 2nd pp unit and enhance ES production.
So acquiring a center (who is almost certainly not going to be as as good a player as Rick Nash) is good because it helps even strength and 2nd unit power play production, but adding Rick Nash does not because he's taking away opportunities to score from other players.
What if acquiring Rick Nash, then pushing Alex Burrows to the second line and Ryan Kesler to the second unit power play helped our first and second lines and both power play units?
