A moment of silence for Rick Nash.

Well, ok, not for Rick Nash himself, or the current situation he finds himself in as a new member of the New York Rangers. Heck, no moment of silence necessary for the Columbus Blue Jackets, since they got some good pieces back. No, Blues fans. I think everyone here knows what the moment of silence is for.

So, no chance to trot out the Oshie exploding Nash on a big hit .gifs six times a season. Now? Now we’re limited to just one. Considering the fact that Nash’s out of the Central now, however, I think the Oshie/Nash jokes are something most’re willing to give up for the benefit of not dealing with him quite so much.
