It's a classy move by a classy guy, and probably warms the hearts of Rangers fans who aren't completely sold on Nash just yet.
"Dear Blue Jackets Fans,
Thank you for the unwavering support you've shown me over the past nine seasons.
I am so fortunate to have had the chance to call Columbus home and to say proudly I am from the Buckeye State.
Thanks for the memories. Thanks for everything.
That's pretty cool, and a really nice gesture from a really nice guy. Everyone talks about what a good character he is in the locker room. His world is obviously a little different now that he's on Broadway, but you always love to see a guy with as much class as Rick Nash playing his home games at Madison Square Garden.
