    They might get in to the top five on merit.

    Is there anyway that a post that's being quoted from a poster on your ignore list, be blocked as well?

    Really?
    2012-2013 21 G, 21 A , 42 Points in 44 Games
    2014-2015 42 G, 27 A , 69 Points in 79 Games (42 Goals is the most he scored in a season, 2nd most points he scored in a season in his career)

    You can say that he wasnt a playoff performer and the last couple of years he hasnt produced offensively like he has in the past would be fair, but he's been injured a lot, and quite honestly I think AV changed his game to be more of a 2 way player rather than just an offensive force. How many times has he been snake bitten this year?
    Maybe if the Rangers had a sufficient PP since Jagr-Nylander-Straka he could have produced some more too.
    Cant take away from him that he's tried especially this season, the dude has mostly been the one player busting his ass game in and game out this year. I would gladly take him back next season for something like $4-$4.5 million.

    I happen to agree with this evaluation a lot;

    The guy's been a pretty solid 2 way player and his game has evolved quite a bit from his days back in Columbus. Also, he's going to net us a really good return for his service in the coming weeks. Thanks Ricky, and Grabby as well, while we're at it! They were both very good Rangers. I'm really hoping the guys both get a chance to win the Stanley Cup. Both are deserving.

    Ok man we get you and how important it is to you to demean the guy incessantly, more than any other Ranger. It is not like you haven't used other threads to belittle Nash constantly. Now you need to muck up an obvious trade thread to make the same stupid and simple points about a classy player.

    We all hate what we are watching, so give us a space where we can discuss a better future. BTW, Nash was our best skater again, last night. The guy had to give his list yesterday and still played harder/better than most of our forwards. How about you let us talk about the list, possible trades and all the other forward looking things that give us hope?

    This is pretty silly math, because it doesn't account for games missed for injuries...I don't even know what games this counts.

    He has 142 goals in 368 games with the Rangers. That's a 31.6 pace per year.

    Thank you. I really felt for the guy listening to the interview with him. A really first class professional. When everyone was all over him in the playoffs in 2014 did he do a Dan Boyle and lash out? No? His overall production has been pretty good with Rangers and he's had more issues with injuries than he did earlier in his career. Even if we trade for loads of future assets, most are not going to be ready for the roster next year, so I'd be glad to take Nash back if he's ready to take a reasonable deal

    Nash and Grabner are the only ones skating because they know they are getting traded, and are trying to get this team in the playoffs so they dont get shipped out.

    I felt bad for Nash, when he was talking about how his son even sings the Goal song. "I know it's a business"; Man...that just tears at ya when they say it like that. The guy really loved it here. Hey listen, the guy gave it pretty much everything he had in him here. I have no problem with a guy that comes to play at 100% every night, and Nash did that pretty much for his entire tenure here.

    I wish him, and Grabby the best going forward. I hope to dear sweet Jesus Nash scores a ton in the playoffs just to show that it wasn't him, and it was the puke style of play the Rangers exhibit nightly.

    So much for worrying about players not wanting to sign here.

    Now that is ridiculous, Grabner has been crushing it since he's been a Ranger. You really think Grabs just turned it on in the last month.

    I guess you are also saying Nash was dogging it, but many observers felt he's been snakebit this year. I think he has been playing hard, going hard to the net with pucks and also working to consistently screen the goalie in the tough areas. Come on man, why are you running with that narrative? Let it go, it is off the mark.

    No, I didnt say or imply anything of that. Give it a fucking break man, you put way too much effort into trying to prove me wrong or something. You keep making shit up.

    Dogging it?? No. A big man playing small, FOKK YEA, for a while now. Maybe since his last concussion.

    I think the injuries were a huge factor. He did shy away from contact and avoided crashing the net anytime he came back from an injury.
