While it’s true that the free agent pool is pretty barren, there is one name that could be a perfect fit for the Nashville Predators.Carlo Colaiacovo was a member of the St. Louis Blues for the past four seasons but that time seems to be over. The Toronto native is on the market and looking for a new club. More importantly, he’s looking for an opportunity to prove that his injury history hasn’t gotten the best of him.After Ryan Suter unexpectantly signed with the Minnesota Wild on July 4, the Preds found themselves without a #2 defenseman. And while they’ve locked up Shea Weber for life and they have promising young rear guards like Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis ready to make an impact, Nashville still has a gaping hole on that top pairing. Josi is believed to be the heir-apparent to Suter but is he ready for top line minutes each and every night?That’s where Colaiacovo comes in.According to capgeek, the 2001 first round pick averaged the fifth most ice time last season among still-avai...

With this week’s blockbuster trade, many are now wondering just how far the Rangers will go with the addition of Rick Nash. While it’s still way too early to be penciling us in as front-runners to win the Cup, one thing we can do is look at how the Rangers might change from an x’s & o’s or “systems” perspective.
Fortunately for John Tortorella, adding Nash doesn’t necessaril...
Yet again another summer where everyone’s eyes are on Ohio. I feel like almost every year the sports media has incited a riot of speculation among the citizens. A few years ago the hot topic of the summer was the decision of Lord Voldemort. This summer’s hot topic was Rick Nash. Is [...]
The latest New York Ranger was engulfed by two semicircles of reporters and television cameras on Wednesday.
And it's only July.
Welcome to New York, Rick Nash.
Nash, acquired from Columbus Monday in the offseason's most important trade, met with reporters at the Rangers training facility two days after the deal, as he tried to get acclimated to his new surroundings.
The drama between Rick Nash and the Columbus Blue Jackets finally ended on Monday with Nash, along with Steven Delisle and a 2013 third round pick being traded to the Rangers for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a 2013 first round pick. Columbus retains their third round pick if the Rangers reach the 2012-2013 finals. Assuming the season starts on time, let’s have...
In the wake of Nashville matching Shea Weber’s offer sheet and Columbus trading their captain, Rick Nash, to the Rangers, it’s worth looking at the landscape surrounding the Blackhawks in the Central Division as the summer continues. Here’s an updated … Continue reading →
For Nashville Predators' fans, this summer has been like an old fashioned country or western song. Instead of hearing about getting drunk, or their wife / girlfriend leaving them or their dog or horse dying Predators fans were treated to a summer where their top two defenseman Ryan Suter and Shea Weber. Losing Suter, an unrestricted free agent wasn't quite as surprising...
Mike Halford at Pro Hockey Talk reports that Shane Doan is looking for a 4-year, $30 million contract if he doesn't re-sign with the Coyotes.Halford adds that some sources predict he'll come close to getting it....have some of these owners forgotten that Doan is 36! And these same guys are actually pleading poverty during CBA negotiations. Unreal....if Sather caves to Doan...
In an interview with Jason Malloy of The Guardian, Brad Richards said this about the acquisition of Rick Nash..."It's what we need. He's one of the best scorers and power forwards in the league. He brings us size and goal scoring."...ya think? Besides Lundqvist, Richards has to be the happiest guy on the team as he has another stud winger to distribute the puck...
There have been several reports that some variation of the package the Rangers sent to Columbus for Rick Nash on Monday was on the negotiating table for months before the deal was finally consummated. But Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, who is one of the more clued in reporters in the business, tweeted that defensive prospect Tim Erixon was in fact only added to the deal...

This past week, the long anticipated trade of Rick Nash finally came to fruition. Due to months of anticipation, the final return – Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon, and the New York Rangers’ 2013 first-round pick – left some fans wanting more, and with the recent success of the Blue Jackets (or lack thereof), Columbus’ GM Scott...
from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News, This summer, Holmgren’s message has been consistent and stern with his young players. They’ve held off shipping any of them to other markets thus far — including deals for Rick Nash and Bobby Ryan.
That’s why it needs to continue to remain consistent in the remaining weeks of the summer, to avoid overcompensating to fill...
When the Rangers acquired Rick Nash, they did so by dealing two roster players that played key roles on the bottom six forwards. Losing Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov may not look like much, especially when they are dealt for someone like Rick Nash. However, it does lead to the discussion of how to replace these players, especially Dubinsky, who was one of the Rangers top defensive...
A team is down by a goal in the third period with the animosity building as the minutes go by. A breakdown in the defensive zone for the team ahead causes a scramble in front with players dancing around the net declaring a goal. The puck may or may not have crossed the goal line. Fans stand in an uproar as they applaud the goal they all thought they saw. All the attention...
