Alvin Chang at ESPN Insider reports that while the Rangers are willing to include Brandon Dubinsky in a deal for Rick Nash, young defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto will not be.

Larry Brooks at the New York Post believes that Columbus' asking price is Dubinsky, McDonagh or Del Zotto, Chris Kreider and either a first-round pick or another of the Rangers' top prospects.

...love to hear that the Rangers aren't even considering giving up one of their top two young defensemen. Especially after Del Zotto's game last night.

...that package basically puts a gaping hole in the Rangers rebuild. Stay the course Glen, stay the course.

...big time h/t to reader Mario for hooking me up with ESPN Insider.

Brooks adds that Sather is more concerned about the asking price than the cap crunch Nash's $7.8 million per year till 2018 contract would create.

Speaking of Nash, Katie Strang at ESPN NY has this reaction from the Columbus sniper on the Garden Faithful's "We Don't Want You Chant" last night after he scored his late third period tying goal...

"I mean, that's the reception you're going to get in any building if you score in the last minute to tie it up on the road," Nash answered good-naturedly. "It was an exciting game and it was a tough one. We were lucky to get one point."

...ummmm, no it's not Rick. That's the reception you get from a fan base that doesn't want you.
