Horrible signing. Our front office is terrible. Every team in the entire NHL has improved and we just keep getting worse.
So the other Nash seems like an ok move.
Well... Riley Nash saved a few of us of completely jumping off the cliff.
Still not sold on banking on big improvements from the youngsters. But one can hope, right Crede?
Hoping for a lots and lots of things this year.
I like this signing.
Still need more bodies, but the four regulars we lost totaled 50 points for us last season. Nash had 41 on his own.
Not the R Nash I really wanted but a fine R Nash none the less. A late blooming 3rd liner at a very very reasonable contract.
And how many times will Rimer call him "Rick Nash" next season? 30,000 is my guess.
This was a really good signing for us. Looking at all the other silly deals made today, I'm just thankful for the moves Jarmo DIDN'T make.
Actually, to improve on this point...
The three forward-liners we lost totaled 43 points last season. Nash had 41.
And he's a center, by the way. Always a good thing.
Other than last years outlier numbers, Nash doesn’t convince me he can outscore Dubi. Whoopee! I’m not convinced he brings more to the table than Figs or Jenner playing center, something I’d prefer not to see. But I’m sure that he’s cheap is his positive, but that doesn’t make him good. Put me down as on the signing.
He's always worn #20 in his NHL career. Unless I am very forgetful we haven't had a #20 since Tim Erixon and Kristian Huselius before him. So, I assume Nash will be #20 for us too.
Well as someone on the main board pointed out, he should wear 61 so all those old jerseys we bought over the years are semi-current again.
There was this dude named Saad who wore #20
Yeah but you see plahing Jenner or Foligno at center kills our winger depth. The point of the move is to keep them on the wings. Jenner or Foligno can roll on Wennbergs wing and take draws whenever he struggles and then play wing after the draw.
Or 16, just to mess with people.
On its own a good bottom six add and it's no secret we need the center depth. Smart place for Nash to sign as well as he should see plenty of ice.
I feel like Jarmo and co still have something up their sleeve for a top 6 add but that is probably wishful thinking.
I’m ashamed to admit this but I have an Alex Svitov jersey (those were dark times) so that’d work too.
Oh ****, I even have his T-shirt jersey
Actually, I'm only just now realizing that I'm "upset" about the JJ move for this reason.
The Jack Jones "sightings" should take a significant hit. Wouldn't be surprised to see "Ric...uh RILEY Nash" to surpass "Jack Jones", this year. Truly is a new era.
I put the over/under at 43, for both.
If RICK signs, things change, the "odds", EVERYTHING. I'm not sure Rimer makes it to January if that's the case.
I'd like to see what we'd do with the nameplates on the back of their jerseys. I'd just go with NASH for both of them.
Let's all hope this works out better than the last time we signed a bottom six center from the Bruins.
I can insure you it will. (Misspelling intentional!)
I believe he was referring to Campbell but yours was a bad one too (he was supposed to be a #1 center tho)
I hope so(about Dubi) but I'm not holding my breath. I'll gladly eat that crow if I'm wrong.
