My Opinion: Nash definitely proved himself last season and will be on the Canes’ roster next season. Mark does a great job of breaking down Nash’s best games and showing how he created plays.
Unfortunately for Nash, I’m not sure how much of a role, he’ll have with the Hurricanes next season. Elias Lindholm should take the third-line center spot, which just leaves the fourth-line center for Nash. He should easily take this, but will not see a lot of ice time.
However, he should still help the Canes on the penalty kill and be a good two-way player.
