    He's making the right choice considering his head injuries the last few years.

    I will never forget Nash’s game against Columbus when he dropped the gloves against Comeau (sp?). He was a beast that whole game.

    I’ll also never forget him getting booed during the 2014 season. Garden faithful. lol.
    LGR!

    Congrats on a good career. Wouldn't mind him coming to MSG as a commentator though.

    So he can awkwardly look into the camera all the time?

    Nash, 34, has not officially retired, despite rumors on Tuesday that he’d submitted his paperwork to the league.

    But in an exclusive chat with The Athletic, the former Blue Jackets, Rangers and Bruins star said he’s waiting for his body to determine if he should keep playing.

    The concussion symptoms that disrupted his 2017-18 season with Boston, have not entirely subsided, he said, though he declined to describe the side-effects he’s suffering.
    I think that would be the sign that its time to hang up the skates.

    This is a "no brainer" for a 34 year old if he still feels effects -- any effects -- from a concussion that occurred over six months ago. Rick is a great guy and I would be glad if he came back to the Rangers in some capacity.
