GLENDALE, AZ - OCTOBER 10: Rick Nash #61 of the Columbus Blue Jackets skates up to a face off during the NHL game against the Phoenix Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena on October 10, 2009 in Glendale, Arizona. The Blue Jackets defeated the Coyotes 2-0. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)
Kevin McGran at the Toronto Star reports that the Rangers organization would have been gutted if they traded for Rick Nash at the trade deadline..."Other teams, notably the Rangers, refused such high demands at the trade deadline. It was noted recently to the Star by one Ranger front-office employee that Howson wanted so much, the Rangers would look like the Blue Jackets by the end of the trade."...what's crazy is that Howson is still making these ridiculous demands. He's in fantasyland if he thinks an NHL team is going to empty out their coffers just to bring in one player. Especially when every team on Nash's list (Rangers, Bruins, Red Wings, Sharks, Flyers and Penguins) is already a Cup contender without him. Each of these teams would probably end up being worse off with Nash and no one supporting him....kudos to Sather for not caving to Howson and giving us another reason to start trusting him.H/T to reader Andrea G.***And for those always on the lookout for interesting Rangers ...
