Rick Nash 2015 Trade Rumors
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?"
Vigneault said that he and Nash had a conversation on breakup day and that Nash understands "that his contribution is real important and I think he will only continue to improve."
Nearly 57% of readers DO NOT want the Rangers to trade Nash.
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 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.
Nash has a limited no-trade clause that starts this season and Larry Brooks writes that if the Rangers are interested in remaking part of the team they should consider trying to move him. (NY Post)
