New York Rangers Depending On Rick Nash

from Andrew Gross of The Record,

This is about Rick Nash now and how much more production he can give the Rangers.

This is about Nash now, even if hockey is never about one player, because he’s the Rangers’ one, true, offensive superstar.

And this is about offense now for the Rangers because, heaven knows, it hasn’t been for a while at Madison Square Garden, where the Rangers slog out 2-1 and 3-2 wins thanks to the brilliance of goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

This is about offense and Nash now because Alain Vigneault is the coach and not John Tortorella. Vigneault’s Canucks were one of the NHL’s better teams in terms of goal production and power play efficiency in his seven seasons.

Nash is the Rangers’ best threat since Jaromir Jagr set a team record with 54 goals under Tom Renney — another coach who ran afoul of the Blueshirt faithful because of a lack of offense — in 2005-06.
