Rick Nash decided early on that he would be spending his lockout overseas. As early as September 17 it was being reported that Nash and his buddy Joe Thornton would be making their return to the Swiss giants HC Davos.
For most players, playing overseas is the best option. After all, players need to make a living, and furthermore, the prospect of not seeing any competitive game action for an entire year can shift a player's progress into reverse.
But that doesn't mean everything about heading overseas will be ideal for a player. Especially when it comes to a player who recently joined a new team; like Nash.
Given the current circumstances, I'm sure Coach Tortorella believes Nash heading to Davos is making the best of a bad situation. But there are a number of things that could make this bad situation even worse.
I'm here to tell you why Nash to Davos could be a bad thing, especially if there is a shortened season.
