Nash’s Willingness To Drive To The Net Paying Off

It’s no secret that Rick Nash is on fire this season. He’s stronger, faster and more willing to engage. However, the biggest improvement to me has been his ability to drive to the net, with and without the puck, to make a play. Stunningly, Alain Vigneault disagrees with my assessment stating the only difference between Rick Nash this season and last season is that the puck...

What To Do With The Duke of New York

When asked whether or not Anthony Duclair (1 G, 2 SOG) was going to stick with the Rangers or get sent back to juniors, Rangers Head Coach Alain Vigneault quipped, “Talent has no age.” True enough, but the question isn’t whether or not Duke is talented, it’s whether or not he’s ready for big ice. Few dispute Duke’s promise as a potential top-six forward in the NHL. Over...

BREAKING NEWS: Anthony Duclair Only Owns One Shirt

Let’s get this out of the way. I’m not one for conspiracy theories. However, something strange is going on in terms of Anthony Duclair’s wardrobe. Above is a picture of him from last night with The Broadway Hat and the puck from his first NHL goal. Good for him.   That’s all besides the point, though, because there is something bigger developing here. Notice the shirt Duclair...
