Friedman just said on Hot Stove GMSH told Nash he "probably won't be moved Monday".

Hmmm....

Can't wait to see if Nash plays tmw or not....

Also 2 things. I'd really feel bad for BlueJacket fans if 1- I wasn't a Pirates fan and 2- I wasn't so sure 90% of them are Buckeye fans

Lindback, Wilson, Ellis, 1st?


Lindback was not listed. The other 2 were.

This is quite a cluster honestly. The problem with the Nashville deal would be does Rick Nash want to go to Nashville.

However, this type of thinking could show players like Suter and Weber that the Preds are serious about winning a cup and might lead them to signing them longterm.

If there is any chance of him being moved, I don't play him tomorrow.

Your last point is what I make out of Nashville getting in the mix. Friedman said there is a very specific (limited) group of teams that Nash will play for, and he will not expand that list just to play in the playoffs this season. I can't imagine Nashville is on the list, but I could see them making it known that they made a play for their fans and Weber/Suter. Although, maybe Nash is looking for another market where he can vastly underachieve without being called out. :pop:

If I'm Nash and I'm not, if I get a chance to play on a team that is built around Nash - Weber - Suter - Rinne, that's a pretty good core that could be together for a long time. Add in Legwand, Hornqvist, and Fisher...that's a pretty good team that is competitive every season.

I also think Rinne is Top 3 goaltender in the league (Fleury and Lundqvist)

No question that is a nice bunch. And its a team that knows how to draft and develop its young players.

Rinne is definitely top 5.

I think they could come out of the West this year, if they can get a scorer. I see a lot of the Pens on how their team is built with developing players and building around their stars. Hopefully, they can get someone by Monday.

Nash to Nashville is picking up steam. Preds should throw the rights to Radolov in the mix.

I don't know; being traded to to the worst team in the NHL wouldn't encourage me to return to the league.

Apparently a lot of teams are backing away from Nash because Columbus is now making ridiculous demands.

When it's all said and done, he'll probably still be in Columbus.

Philosophically, i dont understand this at all. Why do you trade assets for bog contracts? If you want a star, sign him in free agency.
