Dealing with the real world

Via Mark Spector, talks between the Rangers and Blue Jackets regarding Rick Nash have “advanced.” The reported package includes one of Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto, a prospect (apparently Tim Erixon), and a first round pick.

Rangers-Islanders Preview

The New York Rangers have an ample cushion atop the Eastern Conference, but coach John Tortorella's focus is on turning around a sluggish stretch and not on where his team sits in the standings.

'Shirts dump Wolski, have cap cushion for Nash or another deal 

The Rangers didn’t need any more Nash Cash, since the inclusion of a player such as Brandon Dubinsky in a potential trade for Columbus’ Rick Nash would free the requisite cap space. But they still created a cushion by dealing seldom-used winger Wojtek Wolski to the Florida Panthers on Saturday afternoon.
