Rangers fans can breathe: Nash’s MRI shows no shoulder damage

Rick Nash

Rick Nash sustained a shoulder injury while playing for HC Davos. He left the game as a result, but fortunately the recent news about the injury has been encouraging.

Nash had an MRI and it revealed no shoulder damage, according to Larry Brooks. Nash is now day-to-day.

The worst case scenario for a hockey player in Europe is that they suffer a serious injury. The NHLPA warned the players that NHL teams might suspend the contracts of those that are hurt while playing overseas until they are cleared to return.

On top of that, a long-term injury to Nash would be devastating to the Rangers. As things stand, if we were to get a new CBA today, the Rangers would likely enter the regular season without Marian Gaborik, who is recovering from shoulder surgery.

    As a Rangers fan, I still don’t like the Nash for Dubinsky trade. The quote that Kurt Russell made playing Herb Brooks in the movie “Miracle,” “I’m not looking for the best players, I’m looking for the right ones.” Dubinsky, Anisemov and Erixon were the RIGHT players for the Rangers. Nothing against Nash, but the Stanley Cup isn’t just gonna fall in his lap, he’s gonna have to work hard for it. Nash is gonna have Torterella breathing down his neck if he dosen’t bust his butt playing just Gaborik and Richards what it’s like to not play hard for Torts. You’re making alot of money Rick, you had better earn it wearing a Rangers sweater, cause I know the guys playing in Columbus who got traded for you will.
