I think they'll go after a goaltender first. That and defense.

I could imagine the Kings getting Nash for something like Bernier and J. Johnson +

If Columbus trades Nash to NYR, it is going to take Marc Staal. They are going to want a defenseman, if they can not get a goaltender. Staal, Stepan, Prospect, 1st would be my guess.
LA: Bernier will be the center of the LA end of the trade.

How about Nashville?

Suter, Lindbeck, prospect, 1st for Nash, Clitsome

Columbus needs to trade him somewhere where they get a goalie in return.

LA - Bernier
Nashville - Lindback
Washington - Neuvirth or Holtby

Hell, maybe even Bobrovsky from Philly

LOL? Nash isn't worth that much. Certainly the headliners of those two deals as well as a first is ridiculous.

Suter, 1-2 prospects, 1st
Lindback, Suter, 2nd

NYR would be so dumb to trade for Nash. They have an absolutely ideal mix of players on their team -- why mess with that?

Some of the names being thrown out are ridiculous. Nash is drastically overpaid and highly overrated. He has the fifth highest cap hit of any player in the league, yet is not even in the superstar or 1st tier of star players. Columbus would be wise to trade him and I bet they could get someone to overpay. Maybe its Columbus that is bringing Nash down, but it sure doesn't reflect that positively on Nash how average he's been there despite his skill set; the fact that he is the captain of a team which has flounder so much is even more of an indictment on Nash.

57 54 57 69 79 67 66 56* for $7.8M for another six years?! No, thank you.
* - pace this season

Not sure they need nash, especially at the expense of their top defender, but if any team made a deal to disrupt themselves out of the top spot in the east, it would be NYR.

Not sure adding a 40 goal scorer would disrupt them out of the top spot. But when you are in that top spot, why bother making the move just because he's the latest "big name" to go on the market. I swear, every "franchise" player that is rumored to move, NYR get in on it. Must be nice to be able to bury your mistakes on the farm, or find a lackey (Montreal) to take them off your hands.

Haha. I feel like that needs a qualifier. Like, former, one-time 40 goal scorer. Else it would be appropriate to refer to Jonathan Cheechoo as "a 50 goal scorer." :P

Adding Nash and trading a defender for him doesn't make the Rangers a better team...

They'd be better off not messing with anything.

"Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch reports that he believes that are five teams on Rick Nash's approval list: the Boston Bruins, the Los Angeles Kings, The New York Rangers, the San Jose Sharks and the Toronto Maple Leafs."

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=387983

I don't see the Bruins being even remotely interested.

They are leading their division... Maybe he's friends with someone like Thornton or Pavelski and he wants to play with them?

San Jose has been the most unimpressive team touted to be a true contender that I have seen this year. They really seem to be going through the motions every time I watch a Sharks game.

That's essentially my point. Rick Nash has a soft spot for being on teams that are going nowhere.
