Rick Nash Offseason Trade Rick Nash

According to Bruce Garrioch in the Ottawa Sun, the Senators offered Columbus goalie Robin Lehner, winger Nick Foligno and 2011 first round pick Mika Zibanejad for Rick Nash.

Nash refused to accept a deal to Ottawa and the Blue Jackets subsequently acquired Foligno.

Garrioch writes that the Blue Jackets accepted the Rangers package of Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a first round pick because "didn?t want this to drag on any longer."

On Nash, Portzline wrote in early July "The sense among NHL executives is that Nash will return to his dominating ways when he gets traded, that the weight of the franchise had taken a toll on him.?

Eddie Olcyzk said of Nash "Teams should be licking their chops to get this guy in their lineup. He has a chance to be a top-three goal-scorer in the league. Somebody is going to hit a grand slam with this guy.?

According to Larry Brooks in the NY Post, Scott Howson is demanding Derek Stepan in a deal for Rick Nash and Glen Sather still refuses to include Stepan in any deal.

Brooks writes "?This isn?t just a measure of Stepan?s value as a player straight-up against Nash?s value. It is a measure of Stepan?s value carrying an $875,000 cap hit without the possibility of salary arbitration on at least his next contract against Nash?s value carrying a $7.8 million cap hit through 2017-18."

60% of readers would not include Derek Stepan in a deal for Rick Nash.

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers plan isn't to sign Shane Doan OR trade for Rick Nash, the plan is to try and acquire them both.

He writes that the Rangers are a favorable landing spot for Doan if he leaves Phoenix.

He writes, "Weber's possible landing in the Atlantic Division could be good news for GM Scott Howson, who has waited -- and waited -- for something to stoke the New York Rangers to action."

It is believed that the Rangers and Red Wings are the only teams still interested in Nash.

At MLive, Ansar Khan writes that the Red Wings approached the Blue Jackets about a trade for Rick Nash and made "a hell of an offer."

Khan writes that it seems like Columbus has no interest in trading Nash to Detroit, saying "No counteroffer, no back and forth negotiation, nothing."

He notes that the likely players involved were Johan Franzen and/or Valtteri Filppula and says "Again, it's unclear what the Red Wings put on the table for Nash, but if it truly was ?a hell of an offer'' it wasn't a pair of third-line forwards, a couple of minor leaguers and a mid-round draft pick."

In the Columbus Dispatch, Aaron Portzline writes that Scott Howson has not come close to trading Rick Nash and there is a chance that Nash will still be part of the organization when training camp starts.

Portzline writes that Nash could hold out during training camp, a move that would cost him over $27,000 per day, and that he has sympathy from Keith Primeau who held out in Detroit in 1996.

Primeau said, ?You think you?re going to play forever, and then you look back and it?s been 10 years. Your career is half over. Every year that goes by without the playoffs is another missed opportunity, and you get to a point in your career where you just can?t sign years off anymore.?

Reader Andrew C emailed me and said that he would include Derek Stepan or Michael Del Zotto in a deal for Rick Nash.

His reasoning was, "Too often we focus on what we are giving up, and not what we are receiving. No player in any proposed package from the Rangers is ever going to approach the skill level or stats of Nash. This is why you are forced to "over pay" in compensation of players to acquire an elite player in the prime of his career. These types of players are not always readily available."

83% of readers voted and said that the Rangers should not pay the price that Scott Howson wants for Rick Nash.

On Nash, Howson told Reda, "I have a value that I've placed on Rick and that our whole organization has placed on Rick. He's an elite player, he's been a tremendous ambassador for our franchise and our city and we're very comfortable with the value we've placed on him and until we get that value, we're going to keep working away at it."

Howson again repeated that there is no deadline for Nash to be dealt.

In the Columbus Dispatch, Rob Oller writes that if the Blue Jackets can't get what they feel is a good return for Rick Nash, they should keep him.

Oller writes, "Rick Nash is unhappy in Columbus, but during his nine seasons here, he always has acted professionally. Unless that changes ? and it is possible; a prolonged holdout meant to force a trade would be a big shift in professional behavior ? the CBJ?s best player will remain as such. He will perform on par with his skill, not his employment status."

Columbus GM Scott Howson will reportedly wait to trade Nash until he can "hit a home run."

In the Columbus Dispatch, Aaron Portzline spoke with some former players and current analysts about the situation with Rick Nash.

On how Nash can be best utilized, Eddie Olczyk says that Nash needs to play with a center who can distribute the puck and an offensive defenseman who can move the puck up the ice. He notes that Nash shouldn't touch the puck before getting into the offensive zone and right now, without enough talent in Columbus, teams just scheme against him to slow him down.

Ray Ferraro adds, "He needs the puck to be successful. He lugs it to the net. He drives the net with the puck, not so much without."

LeBrun writes, "I know in the conversations I?ve had with Howson since last February?s trade deadline came and went without a deal, he has remained consistent about one thing: even if it takes until August, September, heck, December, he would wait until he got the deal he wanted."

He thinks that the Rangers are the most natural trading partner due to their abundance of young assets.

In the Columbus Dispatch, Aaron Portzline writes that many people are starting to think of Rick Nash as good but not a great player based on how his statistics have lined up over the past couple of seasons.

Portzline notes that Nash is one of four players, along with Alex Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuk and Jarome Iginla to score 30 goals a season in each of the last five seasons.

He adds, "But the sense among NHL executives is that Nash will return to his dominating ways when he gets traded, that the weight of the franchise had taken a toll on him."

He writes that most people think that Scott Howson will wait until Parise signs to trade Nash to a team that lost out on signing the Devils captain and that a delay in signing for Parise would have a negative impact on the market for Rick Nash.
