Morning Line - Rick Nash

“Coming back from the concussion, it was tough for me to feel comfortable on the physical side of it. You can say maybe I was a little ‘careful,’ but it wasn’t as much being ‘careful’ as just not being comfortable in certain situations. “When you come back from a knee injury, you might not be immediately comfortable on cross-overs, or if you have a groin pull, you...

Rick Nash’s goal scoring last season compared to the league

I’ve been documenting the reasons why the ‘heat’ on Rick Nash is an overblown ‘hot take’. See exhibits 1 and 2 here and here. For my next piece of evidence, lets extrapolate Nash’s 5 on 5 goal scoring rate over 82 games worth of minutes. Nash missed 17 games last season with a concussion and continue reading...

When a segment of the Rangers roster hits the ice for this morning’s informal practice, a new face will be in attendance. No, not Rick Nash (btw, where is that guy?). Apparently after weeks of speculation regarding his future, the 34-year old Ryan Malone has been invited by a small population of Blueshirts to participate in the pre-training camp practice.

What an in-form Rick Nash means to the Rangers

Last season, it can be reasonably argued that no other ‘contending’ team had to put up with as much inconsistency from their top line than the New York Rangers. In fact, the Rangers were surely the only team to go deep in the playoffs who couldn’t even identify a clear top forward line. Injuries, a […] The post What an in-form Rick Nash means to the Rangers appeared first...

Let’s talk about Rick Nash’s ‘struggles’

Rick Nash rightfully drew a healthy dose of criticism for his playoff performance with the Rangers last year. His three goals in four series worth of games was not acceptable and fell well below expectations. However, his poor performance did not happen in a vacuum; context is important. As I wrote prior to the start of the continue reading...

Rangers Potential Opening Night Forward Lines

Now that the forward positions have been pretty much filled out, the next question is what are the lines going to look like. Will the Kreider-Stepan-Nash line remain intact? Is Stempniak automatically going to be placed with Brassard and Zuccarello? Is JT Miller the best option for the third line center position? Obviously there’s going to be injuries and players struggling, so...

Questions Facing The New York Rangers

from Tal Pinchevsky of NHL.com, How will the Rangers supplement the forward depth they lost? -- In his first year as Rangers coach, Alain Vigneault rolled all four lines and got consistent scoring from the top three units.

Rick Nash is not leaving the Garden

If I had a nickel for every conversation with an NHL front office executive or agent this summer that included the phrase, “The Rangers need to trade Nash,” I would have a nickel from essentially every conversation I have had this summer, and my cap hit would approach Rick Nash’s $7.8 million.

Brooks: Rick Nash Is Not Being Traded

With the free agency cupboard becoming more and more bare by the day, conventional thinking is that if Glen Sather is going to upgrade the Rangers it’s going to be via a trade. And the one Rangers player who continues to be mentioned among Blueshirt Nation as possible trade bait is Rick Nash.
