First it was on NHL Home Ice. Then Nashville Predators beat writer David Boclair confirmed it. Preds General Manager David Poile had a standing offer to the Columbus Blue Jackets for superstar captain Rick Nash.
The Brampton, Ontario native is in the prime of his career at 27 years old and is locked up through the 2017-18 season. His price is a tad steep at $7.8 million (cap hit) per year but that’s the price of elite talent. Nash is a proven 65-70 point and 35-40 goal guy on terrible Columbus teams and he should be extremely motivated on a club with Stanley Cup aspirations as he’s only been to the post season once in his nine year NHL career and that series lasted all of four games.
So what’s the hold up? You know, other than Nash’s no trade clause?
Actually, let’s tackle that first. Nash has given a list of five teams to Columbus GM Scott Howson. Nobody seems to know who’s on the list except for the New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. The Los Angeles Kings were believed to b...

Rick Nash may have played his last game as a Blue Jacket on Sunday. His is the biggest name known to be on the trade market as the NHL trade deadline arrives Monday.
If so, it was like so many other Nash games for the Blue Jackets. He scored a goal and they lost, falling 4-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Consol Energy Center.
According to published reports, the Blue Jackets are...
The New York Rangers have announced the acquisition of defenseman John Scott from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a fifth round draft pick. Scott, age 29, will add size and depth to the Blueshirts' blue-line with a 6-foot-8, 270-pound stature. He's one of the toughest players in the NHL and loves to drop the gloves, but moving forward, I'm not sure how often he...
PHT: After all the bluster and hopes of his agent to see his client dealt by the trade deadline, Rick Nash is staying put in Columbus.

The Nashville Predators and Vancouver Canucks added some reinforcements for a playoff run, while Rick Nash's wish for a deal didn't come to fruition Monday as the 3 p.m. NHL trade deadline passed without any big moves.
Everyone expected the Columbus Blue Jackets to make a deal before the NHL's trade deadline on Monday. They did. But it did not involve star Rick Nash. Nash was the most prized player available in the league's annual late-season market day. Despite reports of strong pushes from several teams, Nash stayed put.
It's one of the busiest times of the year for NHL general managers and one of the most exciting for hockey fans. The NHL trade deadline always generates plenty of buzz, with rumors and opinions running rampant leading up to the big day. This season is no different, as many names have already surfaced as potential trade chips, with the biggest being Columbus Blue Jackets captain...
Chris Kunitz had to two disallowed goals, and they were both ****** calls. Should have been 6-2. Malkin scored again.
Thiessen got his first win.
Hope Rick Nash gets traded to hell.
See you on the Internet tomorrow.
On Monday the trade deadline came and went and no one named Rick Nash moved. It was pretty quiet overall, with a few teams making tweaks here and there. The Ducks, who only a couple months ago seemed poised to be sellers, made just two minor moves. Right wing Andrew Gordon, who was sent to Syracuse a while back, was shipped to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenseman...
Well, gang - it's back to hockey. Today is the first day that the Red Wings can start proving that Kenny Holland was right NOT to sell the farm or trade away assets because this team is capable of winning the Cup without looking for outside help.Kenny was never a guy to make moves for the sake of making moves. I know we're all still pretty peeved at him for standing idly...

Love his philosophy or hate it, you can never say that David Poile doesn’t have a flare for the dramatic.
When the news broke on Saturday evening that an unlikely bidder in the Rick Nash sweepstakes had emerged in the form of the Nashville Predators, I was certain that we were going to be in for a nailbiting few days. While that trade didn’t come...
