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...

The Value of Ryan Johansen – Season Review

Ryan Johansen. The best player to dawn the union blue since Rick Nash. He needs a new contract. He feels disrespected. The war of words is already happening in the local papers. Who is going to budge first? What is he thinking? He is only 21 years of age and has already spent what seems to be a lifetime in the NHL. He may be considered a veteran by some but one important distinction...

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. I can’t tell you the amount of e-mails, tweets and Facebook messages I receive involving...

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, Columbus is a hockey city now and the Jackets are an organization being viewed in a completely different light around the NHL.

Video- This Is The Rick Nash I Know

This is the Rick Nash I know, driving to the net, using his body to keep defenders away. I do believe I saw a bit of this in game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final but will he build upon that game and continue to take the puck to the net or will he make a half circle and then head to the boards? The Rangers need the Rick Nash of old tonight!
