Nash should improve the Rangers power play.
Rick Nash is prolific on the power play.
In his career, Nash has scored 83 goals on the man advantage while adding 99 assists.
Last season, the Rangers had the 23rd-ranked power play, scoring on 15.7 percent of their chances. In 2010-11, the Rangers had the 18th-ranked power play, converting on 16.9 percent of their chances.
Nash should help improve that.
He has a dynamic shot and can play anywhere in the offensive zone. He can use his big body to shield the goalie or to bully his way in the slot, and he can use his powerful shot from the point or the half-wall.
The Rangers will need Nash to continue his power-play prowess if they want to advance far in the playoffs.
A dangerous power play is one of the keys to a Cup run, and if the Rangers can improve theirs, they'll be playing deep into the playoffs.
