Rick Nash in the Memorial Cup?


How's this for a revelation in Eric Duhatschek's column from today's Globe:
Technically, I suppose, [Rick Nash] could be playing for the London Knights in the Memorial Cup as an overage player, if he hadn't turn pro as a 18-year-old.
Wow. Rather mind-blowing, wouldn't you say? So, if this is the case, do you take him or Crosby? I'll let you think that one over for a minute.

Gotta take Nash! As much as I can't wait to see Sid in The Show, and as much as I think he will be a superstar, he is an unproven commodity, even though he has ruled the CHL. Playing in the Q has definitely helped his numbers, although I'm sure he would be the best wherever he played. He's still unaccustomed to playing against the defensive juggernauts of the WHL. Nash has played against the best, largest, smartest, and fastest players in the world, and in just his second year as a pro was top goal scorer! Add to that his size and explosiveness makes this a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. 2 years from now may be a different story, but right now, Nash would be The Man. Imagine if a coach really had such a choice to make? Oy Vey!!!!!

Dude, never mind Duhatschek - I SAID THIS.

Man, us biz writers get no hockey respect.
