Read: The Status Quo With Rick Nash

Rick Nash4 weeks ago tonight, 10/8, the Rangers played the Sharks and Brad Stuart hit Rick Nash in the first period in a play that resulted in a three-game suspension.

Nash didn’t return for the second and third period and said after the game that he had a headache.

That was the last time that Nash has spoken publicly.

On 10/14 Alain Vigneault said that Nash was still suffering from post-concussion symptoms and the response from the media when they ask about Nash is “no change.”

Yesterday, Larry Brooks tweeted that the Rangers stance on Nash right now is “status quo.”

The Rangers Game Previews list Nash as having a “head injury” and being “out indefinitely.”

Last night, on Rangers post game, Dave Maloney said that he thought the third period against Anaheim was the first time all year that the Rangers really missed Nash.

THIS SECTION is all about Nash and his injury.

Adam Rotter: It’s been about a month now with no updates and seemingly no progress with Nash. The Rangers are well versed in dealing with concussions after Marc Staal and Michael Sauer and it wouldn’t surprise me if Nash has already seen some of the specialists that Staal did when he was recovering. It’s a slow process and he could wake up tomorrow feeling fine, go through all the tests and workouts and be back on the ice for the Rangers in December. Whenever Nash does feel better the team is going to take things really slow to try and prevent any setbacks.

People wonder about the long-term with Nash and there isn’t really anything that the Rangers can do. If Nash is hurt through the rest of the year they can’t buy him out. If he comes back healthy and is good, they won’t buy him out. Every player is one hit away and if Nash comes back and performs the way he should I don’t think the Rangers will think twice about keeping him.
