    Why Not Nash?

    Now hear me out.
    I like most was ready for Nash to be traded because of how he disappeared during the playoffs, but if he is talking about hanging them up.

    Why not sign him on the cheap? Would he help out our kids as a teacher?

    He is contemplating retirement.

    There are other articles out there implying the same thing.

    I'd take him back any day of the week, and he's an absolutely perfect guy to show young players the ropes.

    Not sure he meets the physicality standard that they seem to want though.

    Nash will be pulling a Jagr this year and is aiming to play a shortened season.

    Same here. He wouldn't even have to play top 6 minutes.

    Probably the part where I said he is thinking about hanging them up.

    I love Nash, but I want to see these kids have roster spots where we can keep using them continuously. I'm thinking if the Rangers have more veterans, they're going to wanna take a run at the playoffs, make deals and what not. I just hope they give these young guys all the space they need to make mistakes and grow into NHL players.

    On one hand, yes, bring Nash back for all the right reasons. But Iím with Ozzy on this one...letís create all the space we need for younger players. We already have Henrik, Zucc and Staal who are more than capable of setting a professional tone and sitting a newbie down if heís showing signs of going Murdoch on us.

    i think he's played his last game. has enough money and enough concussions which should have him focusing on his long term health.

    Totally agree. And he has young kids that he wants to be there for. But, if he's sitting and watching hockey on tv and changing diapers or what have you, the itch to lace em up will be too great not to scratch. He's only 30 yrs old and fully capable of playing. I'd love to have him back. There is a new football/hockey helmet which is said to lower the chances of head injury. It's price is crazy though but that might help convince his family to let him get back to the ice. ?

    He's 34 and being capable of something doesn't mean you should do it. He could put himself in serious danger trying to "scratch that itch." As we've seen throughout sports, it's just not worth it. If he's even considering retiring, he should.

    He's good at looking into the camera during interviews. Maybe he can start a second career on TV.

    I think the last concus was one too many. BTW, does anyone seriously expect Zib to be playing when he's 34?

    Yes.

    His injury history is way overblown.

    Is it? He's suffered five concussions, no? How many has Nash had?

    Doesn't matter. They effect everyone differently. Nash got worse after every one. Zib (so far) hasn't.

    Crosby missed a year and no one talks about his noodle any more.

    If you're asking me today if I expect Zib to play at 34, my answer today is yes. If he gets another head injury and comes back half the player he was, like Nash, then maybe I change my mind. So far that hasn't been the case.

    What he's like at 44 is anyone's guess.

    After his fifth last season he went scoreless for a long stretch and looked out of place. It took him like twenty games to find his scoring again.

    Ok. Nash never found his game again.

    I agree. I also agree that Zibanejad will play a while longer. Playing Devil's advocate, I suppose.
