What concerned me during Nash's goalless streak was less that he wasn't scoring goals, rather that he wasn't putting up any points. He only had 6 points in those 11 games coming in only 5 games. He went 4 straight games without a point. If you look at the elite players like the Sedin twins, Stamkos, Crosby, etc. even when they aren't scoring goals, they are still helping the team score with assists. Nash can be a streaky goal scorer, I'm fine with that, but he needs to contribute instead of disappearing as he is often criticized of doing.
To be absolutely fair though, Nash doesn't have the supporting cast the Sedins, Stamkos, and Crosby have to help score those goals when they are in a slump. I'm sure if Jake had taken fewer shooting lessons from Juice and Chimera, this post would be very different.

Hmmm, yes. What is with that guy. He seems to running out of gas as the season goes on (Vorachek). He's never shot well, except directly into the goalies mitt. This guy needs to learn to fight and a good fourth liner he would be.
