PLAYERS: Rick Nash
TEAMS: New York Rangers
I've seen more highlight reel goals from the Rangers in the first 21 games this season than I saw all of last year. And the sole reason? Mr. Rick Nash. It's almost like he's giving out lessons at practice. From Haglin's side step goal vs. Tampa to Callahan's Nashtastic move last night against the Flyers, the Rangers Super Star goal scorer is having a positive impact on everyone. Here's Cally's goal from last night... And now Nash's... ...come on! Cally's goal and Nash's second goal looked almost identical. ...move over Dominique Wilkins a new "Human Highlight Reel" is in town. Nash has obviously also had a huge impact in the standings as the Rangers are 6-0-1 in the last seven games he's played in.

Nash leads Rangers resurgence; proves his value

Living in the New York City area, attaching the word “elite” to a professional athlete brings with it an invitation for debate. Ever since the day Eli Manning declared himself to be an elite National Football League quarterback – and then back his talk with a second Super Bowl Championship – it seems that whether or not to attach the “elite” title to an athlete is a sport...

Blue Jackets Could Rebuild Quickly

from Damien Cox of The Spin, Now, the team with the best record among the non-playoff teams could win the lottery. For a team like Columbus, which also owns the first round selection of the New York Rangers from the Rick Nash trade, it means that if both the Kings and Rangers miss post-season play, the Jackets would have three shots at the first overall pick. Let's say...

Ryan Miller gets undressed by Rick Nash and Ryan Callahan in shootout

Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller had a rough outing on Sunday against the New York Rangers in the shootout.  Miller is a very good goalie, but he and the Sabres have been struggling this year.  During the shootout, Rick Nash and Ryan Callahan pretty much undressed him and the Sabres were handed their 14th loss (12 regulation, 2 OT) of the year.  Might be time for Miller to work...

The Steve Nash Incident

This past NBA offseason there was quite a bit of chatter around the league involving free agent point guard Steve Nash. Many felt that the team most likely to land the services of the 39-year-old was the New York Knickerbockers; alas if you follow the NBA you know that prognostication didn’t come to be.

Canucks Gameday: What the Canucks need to do to beat the BlueJackets

Let’s Go Boys! Mornin’, everyone. The Canucks are in Ohio tonight to take on the Columbus Bluejackets, who despite winning their last two games are still dead last in the NHL.
