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 Conference.

Finally, Elliotte Friedman at Hockey Night in Canada reports that Shea Weber and Nashville agreed to extend his deadline to accept his qualifying offer until August 1. The deadline to accept was yesterday.

...if you read this blog you know how much I want the Rangers to trade for Weber, but after losing Suter there is no way Nashville is letting him get away.

...got to be honest Rangers fans, I'm starting to get real concerned the Blueshirts aren't going to be able to make a big move to improve the team this offseason.

H/T to Spector's Hockey for the rumors.
