At the Rangers website, Brad Richards  said that the team wants Nash back and needs him bu that not having him means other players need to step up and fill his role. Richards adds that Nash looked like he was about to get going and was “dominant” against LA on Monday.

Richards told the NY Post that the team will miss Nash but that they can’t change how they are supposed to play, “it would be a long year if you change things every time a player is out.”
