According to Larry Brooks, Rick Nash has submitted his list of 12 teams that he would accept a trade to and that he would not accept a trade to a Canadian team. (NY Post)
Brooks notes that taking out the 7 Canadian teams limit the options the Rangers may have. (NY Post)
He also says that St. Louis is not interested in Nash despite Nash's previous relationship with Ken Hitchcock. (NY Post)
Brooks says that this should put an end to the "hypothetical" deal floating around about a Nash for Kevin Shattenkirk deal. (NY Post)
Adam Rotter: St. Louis, and especially a Shattenkirk for Nash deal, never made sense to me. The Blues aren't interested in adding salary while they try and re-sign David Backes, Hitchcock is leaving after this season and Shattenkirk can, and has always, been able to command a much bigger package.
Why should the Blues trade their top asset in Shattenkirk for two-years of a 32-year old forward? Shattenkirk is a big opportunity for the Blues to re-stock their own system and roster with young picks and players. If any deal for Shattenkirk with the Rangers would work out it would definitely feature Chris Kreider, a young player they can add to their young core, and not Nash.
