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 free agency news, Dave Pollack at the Mercury News reports that Shane Doan is interested in signing with San Jose..."Yes, very much so," responded agent Terry Bross in an email after being asked if San Jose was still on Doan's list of potential landing spots. "He is very intrigued should things not work out here."Last week it was reported that a team from the East offered Doan a 4-year, $30 contract....the more I read about Doan, the less I think he's coming to the Rangers. Actually, despite the ridiculous offer from a East team, I'd be shocked to see him in the Eastern Con...

Mystery Eastern Conference Team Makes Mega Offer to Shane Doan

Shane Doan appears set to cash in on a mega deal from a mystery team in the Eastern Conference. While we do not know which team submitted an offer to the soon-to-be former Phoenix Coyotes right winger, it is reportedly worth $30 million over the next four years. That would be pretty big money for a player who will turn 36-years-old during the first month of the upcoming NHL...

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...

Khan: Rick Nash won’t come to the Red Wings because Columbus can’t stomach the thought

Via RedWingsFeed, I believe this counts as a mid-July blockbuster: According to MLive’s Ansar Khan, the Red Wings did their very best to attempt to acquire: the superstar forward, but the Columbus Blue Jackets simply wouldn’t do business with their self-proclaimed arch-rival: The Red Wings made “a hell of an offer’’ to Columbus for Nash, according to a person with knowledge...

Doan’s Agent Says Sabres Still In The Running

Don’t take this for more than what it is, but Terry Bross of Lagardere Unlimited did tell me less than an hour ago that the Sabres are still in the running for Shane Doan.  Bross wouldn’t say if Buffalo is willing to do a 4-year deal with his client. “They are still on his list.” Bross said. “Out of respect for the team, I won’t comment on offers made.” Buffalo is...

Shane Doan Won’t Be an Easy Grab for the Toronto Maple Leafs

Shane Doan is a name being mentioned around the NHL quite a bit lately. Doan is a proven winner on the ice, and his hockey resume proves it. He won the Memorial Cup and Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy (MVP) with Kamloop Blazers in 1995. He netted 17 points in his rookie season in Winnipeg, but [...]

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...

NHL Free Agency: Doan, Semin & Kane Updates

Apparently, the Shane Doan insanity has taken over the Rick Nash insanity as a day after it was reported that the Phoenix captain was interested in San Jose and it looked like he was staying in the West, Will DePaoli at Inside Pittsburgh Sports reports that the Penguins are now on his short list.It was also reported yesterday that the Penguins have made an offer to Doan...Have confirmed...

GARTH: Report: Pens Make Offer To Doan

Its July 16. Do you know where Shane Doan is?

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...

LINK CITY: Pens make Doan an offer, re-sign Strait, Top 100 radio host

  Two semi-newsworthy things today. 1. Brian Strait signed his qualifying offer of one year, 605k. Strait wasn't terrible last year when he got some play. Could probably see him sneaking into the top 7 on the Pens. [ PG+ ] 2. The Pens apparently offered Shane Doan a contract. [ Puck Daddy ] via [ Shelly Anderson ]  Really not worth getting jammed up...
