Rangers Talk About Nash

from Katie Strang of ESPN New York,

“He can skate, he’s big and he can score. Those are the toughest guys to play against, guys that can move and that are tough to knick off the puck,” Del Zotto. “He’s a pretty dynamic player.”

Rangers defenseman Anton Stralman played with Nash in Columbus for two seasons from 2009-11 and knows him better than most. He sees huge offensive potential for Nash and any team that may be able to land him at the deadline.

“He’s a skilled power forward; obviously, more toward the skilled side of it, but still, he’s a big body that comes with speed, and he finishes checks. He’s got a little bit of everything,” Stralman said.

The 25-year-old blue-liner, who likened Nash to Red Wings star forward Pavel Datsyuk, said he thinks Nash could break out offensively given an opportunity to play with a top team.

I can’t see this at all.  Bringing in a guy from a team half underwater that’s just playing out the string, with a non existent work ethic to play for tortorella.  It will definitely disrupt the team.  I’m not saying they shouldn’t try and get him over the summer, but now is the wrong time.

Did Stralman really just say Nash is like Datsyuk?
