from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Now, as he enters his ninth NHL season, Nash finally has a bona-fide, No. 1 center with him. It didn’t take too long, right? Nash doesn’t worry about the past. He’s pumped about this season and playing alongside Carter.
“To get Carter is huge,” said Nash. “It’s what [management] said they wanted to do and for them to do it is big.”
When Nash signed his extension, management made him a promise that they would leave no stone unturned in trying to make the team more competitive.
“The thing with Scott is that when he signed me to a long-term deal, he showed me his plan and what he planned to do to the team over the few years,” said Nash. “He’s owning up to it. It’s what he told me he would do. It’s just exciting to see the owner spending money and willing to bring top players in here to win.”
