Like any general manager who’s doing his job and the due diligence that goes with asking the price on any ‘big name’ player, the Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch is reporting that Bryan Murray kicked the tires on Rick Nash but balked at the asking price. Rightfully so. While the prospect of adding a legitimate scoring forward to compliment one of the team’s top two lines...
