@Say my Name  There's a huge gap between, "the Rangers could do well to add some grit to their 3rd pairing" and, "the reason the Rangers suck is because they didn't re-sign Brandon Prust and Rick Nash is a super big softy."

@mando24179  1.7 was also when he was a Restricted Free Agent with one relevant year in the NHL. He's now going to be a UFA and has been one of the best bottom-six centers in the NHL the last 3 seasons. Can't compare.

Normally I'd get snarky and say, "what else is he going to say?" However, I do think he really, really wants to stay. Every year at the trading deadline he admits to being nervous and then says he's relieved when it passes and he's still in New York. The numbers crunch makes things a bit difficult but I think he'll do everything within reason to stay.

@Bring back Langdon  Two of the assists and one of the goals came shorthanded when Carcillo wasn't even on the ice.

@EHBIGAPPLE @Herman_NYRBlog  I think you're misreading. QUALCOMP measures the ability of the players on the ice when Nash is on the ice. By having a higher QUALCOMP rating, it means that, on average, the five players on the ice for the other team whenever Rick Nash is on the ice are better than the average five players who are out against Ovechkin, Kessel, etc.

@EHBIGAPPLE  If you want to account for the quality of competition I suggest going to extraskater.com and looking at his QUALCOMP rating. Spoiler alert: he's faced better competition than majority of forwards you'd consider on his level.

@DubiLeetchahan  His shooting percentage these past two seasons is higher than his last two seasons with the Blue Jackets. As for the competition thing, do you think the same wouldn't hold true for Ovechkin, Crosby, etc.? According the Extra Skater, Rick Nash has faced more difficult competition this season than half of the top-10 goalscorers in the NHL; including Ovechkin and Kessel. So that premise would be factually incorrect.

Wordpress is being annoying so instead I'll mention here that Talbot actually has the second-lowest GAA. Josh Harding has a 1.65 GAA.

@6_wong  Bad season or two? This is about to be the 8th season in a row in which they miss the playoffs. Their own fans have begun to protest management and ownership.

@gravey94 @Herman_NYRBlog  Ehh, obviously it doesn't hurt the cause to have options in the system. But I highly doubt Talbot would sign on for anything more than two years unless the Rangers really offered him a lot of money. Which they won't.

@gravey94  I don't think the two situations are remotely related. Consider the fact that 22-23 is considered VERY young for an NHL goaltender. Skapski is 19. Even in a best case scenario, we're 3-4 years away from him being NHL-ready and more realistically we're looking at 4-6 years. What happens with Talbot is going to depend on the money he wants and the role he's seeking.

@GiveGartneraCup  He's been in four fights this season, though all were prior to joining Val-d'Or. This is 100% my own speculation, but I think the coaching staff in Val-d'Or has told him not to drop the gloves unless absolutely necessary because he's too valuable to sit in the penalty box for five minutes. He absolutely is capable, though, as that video shows.
