Found July 15, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
For the first time since Rick Nash 1 back in February I am hearing the price for Nash may be coming down ever so slightly. source: "It's not enough, but at least one GM called it 'a hint of a step in the new direction'." Alright, granted, that's not much...but having heard similar things from three other sources this morning I feel this may be the first real Nash news in a while. Also I am...

Rick Nash Not the Elite Difference-Maker Worthy of Price Blue Jackets Are Demanding in Trade Talks

Rick Nash asked for a trade in January. He was not dealt at the trade deadline in February, nor at the draft in June. Now it's nearly two weeks into the free agency period with Zach Parise and the bulk of the options for scoring help up front off the market, and Nash still remains property of the Columbus Blue Jackets. How could such an elite player be up for grabs this long...

Columbus Wants NHL Ready Forwards for Nash

Columbus Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson explains to TSN what he's looking for in return for Rick Nash..."If we do complete a trade, we're trading out a 30 to 40 goal scorer," said Howson. "Defence is probably the strongest part of our team if we look at it today, so we're looking to get some NHL forwards back first and foremost."...fine, Dubi and AA...

What other players might come to New York in a Rick Nash trade?

As Dave noted last week in our ongoing discussion about Rick Nash, it’s very possible that Nash wouldn’t be the only Blue Jacket coming back to the Rangers in a potential blockbuster trade this summer. There have been wide-ranging reports of Columbus GM Scott Howson’s trade demands, but the general consensus seems to be that he wants a couple of NHL forwards, a top prospect...

New Cap Rules Could Limit Rick Nash Trade To Red Wings Or Rangers

If the NHL is able to lower the salary cap under a new collective bargaining agreement, which it is drastically looking to do, then it will alter how many teams are able to construct their teams going forward. Free agency will look quite different in the upcoming seasons whenever the new agreement is implemented, but it could also affect how teams pursue current players...

The Latest In The (Snail) Race For Rick Nash

It's a new day, which means that it is time for your daily, "Rick Nash trade talks are going absolutely nowhere," update. From Blue Jackets' beat writer Aaron Portzline: "The Blue Jackets are still trying to trade captain Rick Nash, but the last few days have been exceptionally quiet between Jackets GM Scott Howson and his potential trade partners... what...

What Howson Wants For Nash

from TSN, Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson is looking to acquire a couple of NHL-ready forwards in any deal for forward Rick Nash. Speaking with TSN’s Gino Reda on Friday’s edition of That’s Hockey, Howson talked about what it would take for him to pull the trigger on a deal for his captain. “If we do complete a trade, we’re trading out a 30 to 40 goal...

Boston Not a Likely Destination For Nash

                                  Rick Nash trade rumors have been swirling since the trade deadline last season, but no deal has been made yet. As much as I would love to see Rick Nash in a Bruins uniform, it just isn’t going to happen.  Columbus wants way too much in return for their superstar forward, and I do not think the Bruins are willing to give up that...

Jackets team up with courageous goaltender

As Columbus Blue Jackets fans waitand waitand wait for a resolution to the Captain Rick Nash trade saga, there are a couple other Blue Jackets players who fans can focus on momentarily. Oh, and one non-NHLer whose story of an ECHL tryout after a double-lung transplant resonates loudly with any hockey fan and player. Blue Jackets wingers and agitators Jared Boll and Derek Dorsett...

NHL Free Agency Rumors: Nash to Holdout; Doan Likes Sharks & Weber Deadline Extended

Aaron Portzline at the Columbus Dispatch wonders if a training camp holdout would be an option for Rick Nash if he's not traded this offseason....that would be an absolutely nightmare scenario for Columbus and their GM Howson. They'd lose what little leverage they might actually still have and the Rangers would probably be able to get Nash for some 1994 memorabilia.In other...

Vacation

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be out of the country on vacation for the next five days and will not be updating the blog, unless something major happens such as a Rick Nash trade for example (I highly doubt that it will).  Also, when I get back, I will be on the hunt for fans out there that are interested in writing for the blog during next season. I will...

Calm Before the Storm

Besides a few, rather small signings there hasn't been much news for the Bruins this off-season. Could this be a sign of something big to happen? As mentioned in my previous posts the Bruins need that scoring punch. They need that guy who can consistently put the puck in the net. Rumors have it that we are still in the Rick Nash hunt, but in my opinion Nash isn't worth...
