“It’s been a great time living in Columbus. I’m a Blue Jacket today and we’re going to do everything we can to move forward as a team. Like I said the other day, these fans deserve a winning team. They’re the ones that have been the most patient.”

-Rich Nash of the Columbus Blue Jackets after today’s loss to the Penguins. Quote via Aaron Portzline tweets.

I sure wish my Detroit Red Wings would land Rick Nash? But i’m sure that Columbus would want more than what Detroit would be willing to give up.

I come down pretty hard on Nash sometimes.  But I think part of that is because Columbus expects him to be something that he’s not.  He’s a shooter, a scorer, and that is what he needs to do when he is traded where ever he goes.  He has been exceptionally loyal to this team, even though the organization hasn’t really done anything to earn that loyalty.
