Earlier today, we found out that Columbus was talking to the Flyers about a possible deal for Rick Nash.
Apparently, the asking price is too high at the moment. TSN's Darren Dreger reports that the asking price is most likely JVR, Bobrovsky, Schenn, or Couturier. No surprise there. Dreger says that the two teams may "re-engage later."
