The New York Post's Larry Brooks suggests that Rick Nash's "slow" start with the New York Rangers (I'm not sure if 3 goals, 6 assists and 9 points over the course of 11 games played is "slow," but still) hasn't yielded much criticism because the highly-paid Nash is bringing his lunch pail to work, to so speak:
If it is clear we’ve yet to see the full kaleidoscope of Nash’s imposing game, it is equally clear that lack of production hasn’t been for a lack of trying. The winger has been involved, he has been on the puck, he has been recording shots at a rate historically consistent with his first nine years in the NHL and he has been defensively responsible.
Last night, Nash completed the scoring in the Rangers’ 5-1 Garden victory over the Lightning, whipping a left wing two-on-one drive past Anders Lindback with just nine seconds to play. But his third goal of the season did not define the night any more than his stats defined his first three weeks as a Ranger.
