5/21/16 | 9:29PM: On Hockey Night in Canada, Elliotte Friedman said "you are going to hear a lot of wild rumors this year, I think this is going to be a crazy season for them and one of the first to hit is Rick Nash. He has a 12 team list that he can be dealt to and there seems to be a little bit of smoke to this one. I think they may have been asked, I think they would be willing to do it under the right circumstances but there are a couple of things here. 1) he has a $7.8 million cap hit for two more seasons, how would that work and 2) while he struggled this year, the Rangers really defended him. They felt that Nash played hurt and it impacted his totals and they look at it and say if he is healthy he can be much more effective. He is going to be a name and the Rangers are going to be a team to watch."
5/20/16 | 12:26PM: Elliotte Friedman was on the radio in Buffalo today and was asked if he thinks Rick Nash could be traded by the Rangers because of their cap situation. (Nichols on Hockey)
Friedman said that he does and that, in general, this could be a "crazy off-season" with a lot of names being thrown around and discussed. (Nichols on Hockey)
He said that the Rangers are likely at a crossroads of sorts and notes that Nash does have some protection in his contract of where he could go. (Nichols on Hockey)
Friedman said that if the Rangers found a place where Nash might be willing to go, " I could definitely see the possibility that they try and move him. Absolutely." (Nichols on Hockey)
TSN's Craig Button was on the Rangers Blue Line Podcast and spoke about how there isn't much value in Nash's contract and added " I don't know how you get rid of the contract. Maybe you take something back, maybe it's a switch"

Nash reportedly submits a list of 10 teams that he would accept a trade to. (NY Post)
Adam Rotter: When it comes to Nash, I think it's how much do the Rangers value him, how much do other team's value him and what, if any, deal is there to be made. The Rangers aren't getting a hot-shot young forward for Nash, especiallly at 32 and because the Rangers really only gave up Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov to get Nash. Are the Rangers willing to eat some money to move Nash? Are they willing to give it one more go and then likely see him get claimed in an expansion draft the next year? There are a lot of questions with Nash and monitoring his situation will be one of the most interesting aspects of the Rangers offseason.
