Nash expects to play, just will test himself in warmups to make sure #NYR
This would be huge for the Rangers who have struggled without Nash. The Rangers are 23rd in the NHL in scoring right now so Nash will need to step into the lineup and make an impact right away. He missed the Rangers last four games and had three goals and nine assists in 14 games before getting hurt.
#NYR Nash said he hopes to be back soon, did not give definitive answer on whether he'll play tonight but called today's step a "positive"
Nash's injury is still unknown at this point but Nash himself said that he is dealing with "a few issues". It doesn't sound like Nash will be in the Rangers lineup tonight but it appears as if he is close to returning. The Rangers are struggling to find offense right now so they could use his services as soon as possible.
Rick Nash will not be joining the team for Saturday night’s game against the Canadiens. If this is indeed a concussion, the Rangers should be obligated to have way more transparency about the matter because head injury prevention and player safety is supposed to be a league priority. And if it’s not a concussion, what’s wrong with the team saying that? In any case, Nash will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury.
Nash will miss his third straight game with an undisclosed injury.
#NYR No Nash on the ice for Rangers practice. Winger is out with an undisclosed injury.
Nash was a late scratch in yesterday's game vs. Montreal with an undisclosed injury. He was questionable for Sunday's game but ultimately played. There is no news on what is ailing Nash but for now consider him as day-to-day.
So, to review, as per @DarrenDreger, it's Anisimov. Dubinsky, Erixon and a 1st rd pick to CBJ for Rick Nash.
In the much anticipated trade, Nash gets to go to a Rangers team looking to not only get tougher down low, but also create one of the top scoring lines in the East. Nash's potential to produce with other big money Rangers acquisitions - Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik - will significantly benefit the Rangers' Cup hopes and your fantasy team. Reminder that Gaborik is out for the first few months of the year recovering from surgery.
