New York Rangers: Five Reasons You Should Feel Optimistic

Rick Nash Is Hungry

Listen, Nash is not the superstar that he once was in Columbus, he’s just not. But he has become an invaluable two-way player that was sorely missed while he was recovering from a bone bruise.

Nash is backchecking, scoring (well, starting to), and producing scoring chances. It’s also not a coincidence that the penalty kill has improved upon Nash’s return to the lineup.

All Rangers fans know and understand how valuable an effective Rick Nash could be in the playoffs.

And that is exactly the question. Will Rick Nash finally find his stride in the post-season?

I’m not ready to quit on Nash just yet, as I think he can and will produce for the Rangers throughout the spring.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: [email protected]
