Nasher is thrilled because he gets to be the captian of a team with some talent and that he won't have to carry all by himself

Playing second fiddle, in a contest featuring no hitting, intesnsity etc.

Measuring teams, who will CBJ jump next year

Canadians are thrilled to see Nash. I would be thrilled to see him win a playoff game in a CBJ jersey. He lights it up on All-Star teams so I guess he is as good as we think so why nothing with his regular team mates?

Looking forward to getting to next season. As an FYI, looks like Boucher made the right decision - into the playoffs in his first year as coach while Arniel just figured out that the CBJ need more than one look to win the NHL. Sigh.

Cograts to him I think?? Would like to see Team USA spoil his captain status with a win over his Canadian team, but not sure how Good Team USA will be? Good luck to him at this rate the only championship he will get is a Olympic title or a World games championship with team Canada. I wore my Nash Jersey in OKC the other day and was asked many questions: "aren't you glad your home town got the Blue Jackets and we got the Thunder here during the bids 10+ yrs ago?" "Hey is that an AHL team jersey and are they playing the OKC Barons tonight?" "That could not be a CBJ Nash what are you their only fan?" Karma I guess? Go Blue Jackets!

Thank you to the person who has no life and gets off on ranking everyone clueless, off topic or Spam. Pretty juvenile that all you know how to do is rank posts on the Columbus dispatch site. Congrats your doing a great job. Some good posts on here but some person takes it upon themselves to make everyone look bad by rating them as the above mentioned. Good luck to you in your quest to rule the ranking of posts quest. Good grief.

Agreed....carrying teams is hard on him, too, since he's more the kind to fit in with other talent, not lead it to victory. He's a great scorer and skater, but shouldn't be captain of the Jackets.

On a team like Canada's, it's largely an honorific position. In Columbus, leadership is needed. Rick doesn't really have that ability, unfortunately.

Just ignore them, they're merely an unusually cowardly troll. Probably a lurker without the guts to post here.
