Read: Rick Nash Felt Challenged By Alain Vigneault

Earlier this week, Alain Vigneault talked about how he needed his top players, his core players and leaders, to step up and start producing consistently.

One player who was likely not being target by Vigneualt’s comments was Rick Nash.

Nash has goals in four of his last five and six points in those five games, yet he told the NY Post that he took Vigneault’s comments personally. He added that he has always been part of the leadership group wherever he has been and wants to to lead by example on the ice.

Being a leader, Nash says, is a big part of his role with the Rangers.
