The Nash trade was a reaction to add more firepower to counterattack the Devils forecheck, but in the process has the Rangers fear of New Jersey weakened their team?
They still lack a solid 3rd pairing on d and outside of their first line a lot of depth has been eroded.
Our offense was the downfall all season. The rangers would have liked to bring in Nash before the playoffs but the price was absurd.
We got really lucky in the playoffs with how Kreider stepped in and gave us offense. Without him we probably don't get past the first round, let alone Washington. Nash was a though from the beginning of last year. It has nothing to do with the devils.
Who are you a fan of? Because as much as i hate the devils, most of there fans are pretty knowledgeable when it comes to the Rangers.
