They won’t be the only team in the league with big-line envy, but how frustrating must it have been for the Maple Leafs to get torn apart by the Rangers $22 million trio on Saturday night?

Marion Gaborik, Rick Nash and Brad Richards are going to inflict pain on number of opponents this season and they essentially took care of the Leafs on their own in a 5-2 Rangers win.

The big-money trio combined for 16 shots and a total of eight points and were dominant physical forces throughout.
