The Value of Ryan Johansen – Season Review

Ryan Johansen. The best player to dawn the union blue since Rick Nash. He needs a new contract. He feels disrespected. The war of words is already happening in the local papers.

Rick Nash is not leaving the Garden

If I had a nickel for every conversation with an NHL front office executive or agent this summer that included the phrase, “The Rangers need to trade Nash,” I would have a nickel from essentially every conversation I have had this summer, and my cap hit would approach Rick Nash’s $7.8 million. But I’m here to tell you that a trade is not happening. Nash has a no-move clause...

Brooks: Rick Nash Is Not Being Traded

With the free agency cupboard becoming more and more bare by the day, conventional thinking is that if Glen Sather is going to upgrade the Rangers it’s going to be via a trade.

from Scott Cullen of TSN, If the Rangers return most of the same roster, with Martin St. Louis, Rick Nash, Derek Stepan, Chris Kreider, Mats Zuccarello, Derick Brassard and Carl Hagelin as the forward core, the Rangers will likely be a playoff team next year, but there are enough free agents that it can't be assumed the Rangers will have the same roster.
