But this is a good time-filler for the shit rainy days, so here. we. go.
Let's talk Rick Nash!
By this time, everyone knows the Sens are interested in Slick Rick - RDS, TSN, etc are all reporting it, with the pieces going back being Zibanistan, Big Ben Bishop, and Nicky Figs. Lotta debate over why we should and why we why we shouldn't, with a lot of the smarter Sens blogs arguing against bringing in Nash, but let's get to the crux of the whole thing:
HOW EXCITING IS THE THOUGHT OF RICK FUCKING NASH?!?!
I'm just completely throwing logic and #fancystats aside here for a minute, because let's think of the times recently that we've been really excited as Sens fans:
- Gonchar signing as a UFA(!!) WOW! SERGEI GONCHAR, ALL-STAR!
- Sens have the 6th pick! Couturier is still available after the Isle bomb their pick with Ryan Strome, and Corey Pronman ranks him as a great talent! Can't wait!
- Craig Anderson for BElly? I don't just like this trade, I Joseph Gordon-LOVE IT!
- Kyle. Turris.
Let's be real here: no one expected the Sens to make the playoffs this past year, and that was awesome. Great year, whatever whatever. It brought a lot of casual fans back to the team, and what better way to draw them even further back into the fold than to bring a marquee name to the team? At the end of the day, this is a business so y'know Huge Euge wants those sell-outs, and maybe in the long term this will turn out godawful and I hate you Rick Nash I hate you just go die.
But maybe not. So chalk this Sens fan up to being excited about the possibility, and let's leave all the bitching and moaning 'til they hit the ice, eh?
