    Who is Brendon Nash?

    Can he be a solid top 6 defenseman in nhl?

    Wait, THE Brendon Nash? Got called up to THE NHL?

    I watched the guy play 30 odd games at Cornell and I never thought he had NHL potential at all. Nice guy, hell of a shot, but he's just incapable of making good hockey decisions. he caused more turnovers than the rest of the D combined during his tenure, and that was against ECAC competition. I wish him all the best as a fellow Cornellian, but wow.

    Kind of ironic because he was pretty solid for his 1st NHL game. Nothing flashy but I was surprised by the good decisions he took and his safe play. He got 2-3 good shots on net and some nice passes and he did nothing to put his team in trouble. Hope he could play next 3-4 games. He's the best Bulldog d-man since the beginning of the season with a solid 2-way game.

    He played extremely solid for the Habs tonight.

    He was great here in Hamilton... great passer... smart decisions... gets his shot through... responsible defensively

    Just a solid two-way guy
     
  7. Likely to have more of an nhl career than his first round pick brother. Oh boy, that one worked out well for the oil.

    That's great! I hope he keeps it up and you don't see the play that made him a perennial whipping boy amongst my friends.

    Keep in mind that he's the 11th or 12th d-man we've used this season.

    Only one game but he kept it simple. I'm not sure that he's got an NHL future, but he's already a pretty solid AHL d-man.

    Is it just me or does he look like the smallest 6'3" guy out there?

    I dunno. Rick is doing pretty well for himself.

    Kevin Nash has some good genes.

    Rick Nash and Brendon Nash are not related. Brendon's younger brother is Riley Nash, former first round draft pick of the Oilers.

    I always thought Nash was a solid, but unspectacular defenceman when I watched him play at Cornell. Didn't really think he would ever make the NHL though. I'm happy to hear he played well in his first big league game, but I wouldn't expect him to keep it up.

    I don't get it :laugh:


    Anyways, I really liked Nash last night. I had been pimping him up around the HabsBoards saying we should call him up for a while. Great passer, plays a safe, simple defensive game. Won't turn heads but is super reliable.

    I don't even know if we're talking about the same player here.
