In a piece on how well Rick Nash has adjusted to playing on Broadway, Ryan Lambert at Puck Daddy predicts the Rangers' superstar winger could be in line for an impressive post season honor... "That "bright lights, big city" storyline doesn't hang so well on Nash, and hasn't since his first games with the team. While you hate to pin the Rangers' success or failure this season on whether he can keep putting up these kinds of point totals every night. But the way things are going all of a sudden, he very well could be the league's MVP this year." Nash is currently on a ten-game point streak in which he's scored seven goals and nine assists. He also has five two-point games in his last six outings. ...like it or not the Rangers have gone from the whole is greater than the sum of its parts to a very top heavy team in one off-season. If guys like Nash, Richards and Gaborik struggle this team has no chance to win. ...and that's why I agree with Lambert on Nash's Hart potential this season. They guy is literally carrying the team on his back right now. In the last 15 games, the Rangers are 9-1-1 with Nash and 0-3-1 without him. Nuff said. ...Lundqvist has always been to the guy the Rangers could rely on when things went south, but with the King not at the top of his game this year, Nash, in my opinion, has become the Rangers most indispensible player.
