Retain 2-3 million. Nash at 4.8-5.8 per is very attractive

Playoff slump aside the guy scores 30 goals pretty much every season. He had 26 goals in only 65 games this season. He had 21 goals in 44 games in the strike season. Other teams see that. There is no doubt a team would take him. There are very few 30-40 goal scorers in the NHL. Not only is he tradable but we could get a 1st round pick plus prospect for him.

I'm just tired of saying "Nash had a pretty solid game, but couldn't score." He's the highest paid player on the team. Having a solid game isn't enough for what he makes. Nash is paid to be a difference-maker, and he's failing miserably at it. I've never seem someone so big and fast play so soft on the puck. He throws himself off balance trying to make near impossible jukes, and gets easily knocked off the puck because of it. I just wish he would use his size to bull his way to the net instead of trying to dangle around 3 defenders.

Who? Who cares?

The Rangers are not trading him and if they wanted to, someone would take him because despite all the ridiculous crap posted here by boxscore heroes, Rick Nash is a very good player.

The obsession with his salary has gone beyond absurd, and I cannot bring myself to argue with people who don't, or don't want to understand it, anymore.

Nash disappears in the playoffs because he has no will. I'm convinced of that. In the tighter checking games in the playoffs, defenders are playing him tougher, and he has no will to fight through it. He's certainly big enough and strong enough to do it, but he prefers to try the same dangling crap over and over instead of running someone over and risk possibly breaking a nail.

Has anyone been talking about the line mates Nash has? In my opinion his line mates are the problem. I said earlier, look at who Gaborik is playing with compared to Nash.

If Nash keeps moving his feet he scores a goal last night, even with Doughty anchored onto him. Instead falls and gets a call to put a horrible PP unit back into play.

I just started laughing after I read that, I only had one team immediately pop into my head....

Montreal Canadiens

You know exactly what trade comes to mind when a useless bum gets traded to them and we hit the jackpot with a great defenseman.

The only hope for Nash is that this, being his first deep playoff run... at the end of it he sits back and reflects on his performance and comes out a different man next year. One can only hope.

What upsets me most is the kind of game he played that time in Columbus. Where's that emotion and passion every other game? You're in the Stanley Cup finals. Put the team on your back and play like that. If this guy was playing like the Nash against Columbus this team would have plowed through the first three rounds with no problem. This would be a very different season.

Why are people acting like Nash is Gomez? He's been our leading goal scorer since he came here

Nash had 7 more goals in 12 less games. He had a down season and still led out team in goals

Nash also had 9 GWG. You could argue that we don't make the playoffs without Nash

I just don't think it's in his DNA; being a big time playoff performer.

He's kinda like A-Rod only way worse.

He also had one point more than Josh Bailey. Think about that.

You're getting from Nash exactly what you should have expected when acquiring him. He's a talented player, certainly a good one, just not nearly as good as his salary. Worst of all, he's not and never has been a winner. He's the Alex Rodriguez of hockey. Big name, big stats, big paycheck, but in the end, big disappointment.

At least A-Rod had a huge postseason in 2009. Hopefully that comes for Nash in the near future.

Nash has led the team in goal scoring both years he has been here.

Averaged .74 ppg
+26 in 109 games
12 gwg in 109 games Over 10% of the games he played he scored the damn winner.


37 Even strength goals


All of this with not exactly play makers helping him and plays against the best defenders every night.


But please lets all point at his salary and one bad playoff run and make him out to be a complete bum that no one would want.

not for nothing that was one hell of a hook on doughty's part AND it's very tough to move your feet on such a tight turn / wrap around. you'd lose distance between yourself and the goal cutting in with such speed and it wouldn't be a wraparound.

Nash scores if DD doesn't hook him. I can't kill Nash when he's extended like that and Doughty throws off his balance.

Point being if Nash played like the star he's supposed to be, they make the playoffs by more than just 3 points.

Yeah leading the team in goals despite missing 17 games with injury isn't star enough. 3rd in the league in GWG not enough.

If he played 82 games he was on pace for 33 goals.

Scored 12 % of the teams goals and missed 17 games lol

LETS GET THIS BUM OFF THE TEAM!
