6/15/15 | 11:08AM: Friedman said on Sportsnet 960 today: "I will check in on that again this week. I think Nash kind of looked at that as a shot across the bow. He is going from a complete no-move to some kind of modified no-trade clause on 7/1. To me, the most interesting thing is that he is carrying a big number but he scored 42 goals in the regular season. If you ask any coach right now what the hardest part of the NHL is, it's getting into the playoffs. Never mind winning the Stanley Cup, getting in." (Sportsnet 960)

10:32AM: Elliotte Friedman suggests that a team like Buffalo is a team to watch in a potential Rick Nash trade. (Today's Slapshot)

Friedman said that he isn't sure a Nash move will happen but his name may be out there because "they want teams to call them and say 'okay, if we want do Nash, what's it going to take?"

6/5/15 | 12:31PM: McKenzie said on TSN 1290 on Friday, "I made sure that I was careful with how I phrased it, to my knowledge they haven?t committed to or discussing trading him but as they go along here that will be one of the options they want to look at it and then decide.?

McKenzie added, "He scored 42 goals, he didn?t score in the playoffs, played pretty well for the most part but didn?t generate goals. How can you give up 42 goals and I would tend to agree on one level but he also makes $7.9 million on his cap hit the next three years. You brought him in to try and get over the hump, the reason Nash was brought into New York for the price that he was, with guys like Anisimov and Dubinsky is that they thought he would give them the offensive surge. Under John Tortorella they had to work too hard to score their goals and they thought that we need a game breaking goal scorer who can make a difference in a 2-1 game but unfortunately int the past two years, he didn?t play well last year, he played pretty well this year but didn?t score enough, it didn?t work. He didn?t put them over that hump. You either look at it and give him one more time to do that or you go in a different direction and financial reasons why."

Pierre McGuire was on WFAN with Mike Francesa earlier this week and spoke about Nash's performance in the playoffs.

Pierre said "I personally think he is useful but I was disappointed in the lack of consistent offense. He had a great game 4 and great game 6 but he did not have a good Game 5 or good Game 7 and that is just the reality. He gets paid to score, it's like this in any sports, if you don't perform you will get called on it. He had 42 goals this year but did not have a good playoff.
