In an interview with Jason Malloy of The Guardian, Brad Richards said this about the acquisition of Rick Nash...

"It's what we need. He's one of the best scorers and power forwards in the league. He brings us size and goal scoring."

...ya think? Besides Lundqvist, Richards has to be the happiest guy on the team as he has another stud winger to distribute the puck to while Gaborik recovers from his shoulder surgery.

On the pressure adding a Rick Nash to the Rangers line-up brings...

"We're not going to hide from any of that here in this city. We want to be better anyway, no matter what, but you add a guy like him for sure, the bull's-eye is going to be on us this year."

...actually with the lack of hockey coverage in New York, they probably could hide from it.

...probably the ugliest pair of sneakers I've ever seen. Bet CK wasn't sending him sneaks when he was playing in Dallas. Assuming he's still thrilled with his decision to sign with the Rangers.

Michael Del Zotto was also discussing the Nash trade and the relief he felt when he learned he wasn't a part of the deal (SN590 The FAN)...
