The trade for Rick Nash excited many Ranger fans, myself included. His highlight reel goals, his amazing hockey sense, just made Ranger fans drooling for the start of last season.
And Slick Stick Rick, did not disappoint.
His 21 goals, in 44 games, was first on the team. If this was an 82 game season, I feel he would of been right around the 40 goal mark, and maybe even surpassing the mark, which he did twice in his career.
Finding a true center as Derek Stepan creating and generating plays finally turned Nash’s season around as he saw the back of the net more frequently.
Which brings me to our poll question of today, how many goals do you expect Rick Nash to score in a full 82 game season?
