    Nash has had a string of 3-4 really strong games. Great stick skills for such a big guy.


    Rangers almost blew it last night. Yikes.



    also, predictions for the next GM/coach move? Sabres.

    I love how one of the most notorious homer announcers in Jack Edwards was practically blowing Nash on those calls. Rangers look like they're finally stabilizing, especially if they can come back from blowing a 3-0 lead in the last 10 minutes.

    Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if Ruff got the boot; maybe that team just needs a change. Their defence is abysmal this year.

    I think breaking apart the Gaborik-Richards-Nash line was a good idea. They weren't meshing particularly well, and Nash and Hagelin are both getting a lot of points from each other. The third line of Callahan-Kreider-Miller is also looking good despite the (really) young pair on that line. Callahan is basically the anchor there.

    I'm surprised by the fourth line too. Halpern skates like hell in all situations and makes a lot of important non-goal plays. Asham is more skilled than I would have thought too, I just saw him as a nasty fighter, but he's got a very quick shot, good hands, and he has made some smart hockey plays. Torts typically runs 3 lines, but the 4 is getting more and more play as of late.
