Rick Nash is used to facing high expectations and he says it won't be any different for him when he begins his career with the Rangers.
"I've had expectations on me my whole career, since being a high draft pick and going to a club that had never made the playoffs," Nash said Monday. "I think professional athletes like the pressure, they embrace it. And it's no different here [for me]." Nash commented that there might even be slightly less pressure in New York than he faced in Columbus because the team already has so many leaders whereas he was forced to carry the load as the captain of the Blue Jackets.
