Rick Nash is the big name in play right now with a myraid of rumours about where He will land.
As far as Nash and the rumors with him going to the Rangers are Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and a 1rst rounder for him, but then I heard too that they'd want some sort of combination of Dubinsky, Stepan, McDonough and Ansimov.
No fraking way I'd want any part of that deal being a Rangers fan. The Rangers have finally built a team through drafting well and trading for good, young talent, so I wouldn't want them to trade away their future for a bloated contract of a guy on the downswing of his career like Nash. If they can get him on the cheap though as far as trade bait, he may be worth it for the playoff run. How many years has he left on his contract and how much money is owing?
I think The Jackets would love to get rid of Jeff Carter also.
I'm watching TSN right now and McKenzie is saying L.A. is the best option for Nash. Who knows? Crawford is saying The Rangers.
He has 6 more years at 7.8mm/year. No thanks.
Oh I agree, not saying I want him. I did just find out in Rangers chat I was just in that Nash is only 27. I thought he was like 33-34.
And Ted, yeah I really don't think The Rangers are at the top of the list for him and you're right he could very well end up in Van. What have you heard with who The Canucks would be willing to give up to get him?
I can see The Rangers trading Dubinsky for someone (not sure who) if they do make a trade. Also Marc Staal could be used as trade bait due to the fact that The Rangers did just fine without him for half the season. Plus he's only got 1 assist and is -4 in 19 games since returning at The Winter Classic. Can't find anything on his extended stats like hits and blocked shots at this moment though.
