Deadline notes … Rangers made one last offer for Nash, Blue Jackets wanted different players … Panthers weren’t close on deals
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: The Sharks will be getting Douglas Murray and Martin Havlat back before the playoffs. Talks between them and the Blue Jackets for Rick Nash hit a roadblock when the Sharks refused to include Logan Couture. The Sharks did inquire about James van Riemsdyk. The Stars received about “12 to 14″ inquires over the past couple weeks for Steve Ott. The Canucks were offering Mason Raymond, but that wasn’t enough. The Stars were not going to trade Ott for picks or prospects. Burke didn’t trade any of his players for 1st round picks as he didn’t want to send the message to his players that they were giving up on the playoffs. The Capitals took calls on Roman Hamrlik but didn’t find a fit. The Red Wings looked at Paul Gaustad but didn’t have a 1st.
- Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch: Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson said he’ll continue to try and trade Rick Nash in the offseason. “This is too important for our franchise and our fans to do a deal that is not in our best interest.” The Rangers made a late offer of Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Erixon, J.T. Miller, Christian Thomas and a 1st round pick. Howson added:
“I’ve had many teams express that they would have a ton more interest in the offseason,”“I just think it was the right thing to do, the truthful thing to do,” Howson said.“We wanted to make sure that everybody understood where everybody was on this issue because it’s a very important issue for our franchise.
“I think things will continue to be amicable between Rick and the organization.”
- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: Brooks also noted the Rangers upped their offer to Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Erixon, J.T. Miller, Christian Thomas and a 1st round pick. Howson was after Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto, Derek Stepan or Carl Hagelin, Chris Kreider, and a 1st round pick.
- George Richards of the Miami Herald: Panthers GM Dale Tallon said he didn’t come close to making a deal. There was talk that they might move pending UFA defenseman Jason Garrison, but decided against it.
“We made a lot of phone calls and identified what we wanted to add to our lineup,’’ Tallon said. “We couldn’t get what we wanted without mortgaging our future. There just wasn’t a lot of activity. … I’m happy with our team. We improved it. We’re going to stay with the team that has 70 points, is in first place and is battling for a playoff spot.’’
I’ll continue to add Rick Nash trade rumors to this post, bumping old ones to a jump page when it gets to long. Here are links to 2 previous entries HC Rick Nash Trade Tracker Videos and Rumors, and Blue Jackets put Rick Nash on the trade market.
Feb. 26th 8:15 PM
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: Obviously possible Rick Nash could move by tomorrow but it were close in any way do you think CBJ would’ve played him today?”
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: Teams that have the most interest in Nash don’t think he’ll be moved and are looking at other players.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Rangers weren’t willing to pay the price for Nash prior to today, and today the Blue Jackets asked for more than they initially asked for. Can’t really blame the Rangers for not wanting to blow up their team to make a Nash deal.
- Spector’s Hockey via twitter: Sportsnet Marty McSorley said that latest word is the Rangers are out on Nash.
- David Boclair of the Nashville City Paper: The Predators have made an offer Nash. It’s unlikely the Blue Jackets would want to trade within their division. The Preds offer could include: Colin Wilson, Ryan Ellis or Jonathan Blum and multiple picks and/or prospects
- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Blue Jackets haven’t spoken with the Maple Leafs in days. Leafs will keep trying, but Gardiner remains untouchable.
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: Belief before the Maple Leafs loss to the Capitals that the Leafs interest in Nash was minimal, and they they were driving up the price for the Rangers.
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: The Flyers are still talking with Blue Jackets about Nash, but nothing serious has developed. The Jackets want several of the Flyers young players.
- The Fourth Period: The Rangers may include Carl Hagelin (Rangers want Stepan) to go along with Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and a 1st round pick. The Blue Jackets are asking the Maple Leafs for Jake Gardiner, Joe Colborne, Matt Frattin and a 1st round pick.
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Leafs, Rangers, and Sharks have offers in on Rick Nash, and have all said the offer could be better in the summer. The Rangers and Leafs are being aggressive as they have more parts to offer than the Sharks.
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: The Sharks are still interested in Nash, but could probably make a better offer in the offseason. The Maple Leafs and Rangers are still in.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson should go after Derek Stepan over Brandon Dubinsky. Howson wants Chris Kreider, the Rangers best prospect. He also wants either Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto, but McDonagh isn’t going anywhere. Dylan McIlray or Tim Erixon are also options. After the Carter deal, defense is not a top priority for Howson. He could use some 1st round picks to take a run at Canucks Cory Schneider this offseason. They already have their own and the Kings.
Feb. 25th 9:50 PM:
- Spector’s Hockey via twitter: Elliotte Friedman suggested on the Hotstove that the Blue Jackets might not move Nash by Monday. They’ve shifted their focus to forwards for Nash.
- Chris Botta via twitter: Botta can see the Rangers best offer for Nash as Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Erixon, a 2012 1st round pick and a conditional pick based on Rangers success the next 2 years.
- Todd Cordell via twitter: Bob McKenzie reported that the Canucks are jumping into the trade market, with Nash a possibility.
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: Rick Nash’s agent spoke with TSN and said the following: “We’re hopeful a deal can get done prior to the trade deadline that is fair and equitable for the Blue Jackets…” .. “However, if a deal is not reached, then the list of acceptable teams will not change at a later date.”
- Nick Kypreos via twitter: Rangers remain firm that they aren’t going to trade Michael Del Zotto or Ryan McDonagh in a deal with Columbus for Nash.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: Hearing that the Blue Jackets want Derek Stepan badly, but might settle for Carl Hagelin. Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider, Stepan or Hagelin, and a pick (may not be a 1st). There could be more coming from the Blue Jackets. May boil today to Stepan or Hagelin.
- Aaron Portzline via twitter: “No guarantees #CBJ captain Rick Nash is traded by Monday’s deadline, but might be best for all parties to have a quick ending to this.” …”#CBJ have set the bar very high and are waiting for other teams to meet their requirements. So far, none of them have done so.” … “#CBJ approach is that they don’t have to trade Nash, but several possible suitors and the Nash camp are getting impatient w the process.” … “Might be best if #CBJ fans come to terms with the fact that Nash is likely going to be traded. Might not happen at deadline, but …” … “… chances of Nash being with the Blue Jackets at the start of next season are slim.”
Feb. 14th 6:30 PM:
- Spector Hockey via twitter: Dreger lists the Rangers, Flyers, Kings possibly on Nash’s list. LeBrun believes the Leafs are on it, though they may be concerned about giving up too many assets. Bob McKenzie believes there are 5 teams on Nash’s list. LeBrun adds the Canucks could be on it.
- Spector Hockey via twitter: The Kings seem like a plausible destination for Nash, but maybe not at the deadline.
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: Garrioch thinks the Rangers, Flyers, Sabres and Sharks could be interested in Nash.
- Helene Elliott via twitter: A Kings source says there is no truth to the recent rumor that Nash is going to the Kings. (Rumored deal was Nash to Kings for Bernier, Penner, Hunter and a pick)
- Nick Kypreos via twitter: Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson was given a list of teams that Rick Nash would waive his no movement clause for. Believed to be a short list.
- @b1rky via twitter: Pierre LeBrun said on TSN1050 that the Canucks and Kings have both talked to the Blue Jackets.
- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: The Rangers have had preliminary discussions with the Blue Jackets about Nash. The asking price is in excess of a speculated package including Bandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and a 1st round pick. GM Scott Howson scouted the Rangers-Flyers game on Saturday.
- Katie Strang via ESPN: Strang also notes a package could include Dubinsky, Kreider and a 1st, if not more. The Rangers also have Tim Erixon, J.T. Miller, Christian Thomas and Dylan McIlrath.
- Shawn Mitchell via twitter: Rick Nash: “I’ve played my whole career here so it’s a special place to me. As of right now I’m a Blue Jacket.”
- Dennis Bernstein via twitter: “History shows when dealing a star, team rarely gets equal value. Smart team empties vault for Rick Nash.”
- Scott Burnside and Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: 2 GMs inquired about Nash on Friday and were given a firm ‘No.’ Something changed quickly. This doesn’t mean Scott Howson will trade Nash at by the deadline, but he’ll definitely be listening to offers. LeBrun think Nash’s camp may have went to Howson and said he’d be open to moving. Burnside notes that the Kings, Rangers and Maple Leafs would be interested. The Blue Jackets may want a 1st round pick, a couple NHL ready prospects, maybe a young roster player. Howson will ask the moon. LeBrun notes the Kings, Rangers and Flyers would make sense. The Rangers have a nice piece in Chris Kreider. The Flyers have the Brayden Schenn, James van Riemsdyk or Sean Couturier. The Kings have Jonathan Bernier, forward Andrei Loktionov or Dmen Slava Voynov and Jack Johnson. The Canucks could be in the mix with Cory Schneider. Possibly the Sharks could be interested. The Leafs would for sure would be calling. One team executive said this morning, “My sense is that this will still wait until the summer, but it’s not totally impossible to get it done before the deadline.”
- Bob McKenzie of TSN: McKenzie writes, “Last week, in no uncertain terms, NHL teams were told Nash was not available and this week, he is. For the right team, anyway.” This doesn’t mean he’ll be traded. None of this trade talk would be going on without having Nash’s consent. Nash likely has a limited number of teams he’d consider moving to. Half the league would likely be interested in him, but maybe only a handful of teams that would interest him. Nash is in control with his no-movement clause.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Blue Jackets would insist on young roster players in any Nash deal. The location would be determined by Nash.
- Erik Erlendsson via twitter: The Lightning won’t make a play for Nash.
- Shelly Anderson via twitter: Anderson doubts any Jordan Staal for Nash rumors. Nash make twice as much as Staal.
- Larry Brooks via twitter: For the Rangers to acquire Nash, it’s unknown if he’d waive his no-movement clause to go to New York.
- Steve Simmons via twitter: Simmons wonders why Blue Jackets would let the likely to be fired GM Scott Howson trade their best asset.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: “Harder we dig, the more info that is beginning to surface re: Nash availability.” Sources are saying that the Jackets are open to do anything to help their team long-term.
- Joe Yerdon via twitter: Columbus holds all the cards on a Rick Nash deal. It’s up to GM Scott Howson to “hit it out of the park” if he trades him.
- Tim Sassone via twitter: Rick Nash is not even a possibility for the Blackhawks.
- Dan Rosen via twitter: Rosen can’t believe a Nash deal will happen. The team needs changes but not Nash. Not good for Blue Jackets fans if he’s traded.
- David Pagnotta via twitter: Because of salary cap reasons, Pagnotta doesn’t see Nash being dealt to the Rangers.
- Kevin Paul Dupont via twitter: 3 goalies the Blue Jackets to target in a Nash deal are: Cory Schneider, Jonathan Bernier and Tuukka Rask. Dupont thinks it would be fun for Nash to be with the Rangers or Maple Leafs, but they don’t really have the goalie piece for Columbus. Maybe a 3 team deal.
- Kevin Paul Dupont via twitter: Dupont can see a Blue Jackets-Flyers-Maple Leafs deal. The Leafs get Nash. The Blue Jackets get Sergei Bobrovsky. The Blue Jackets and Flyers share some Leafs players.
Feb. 13th 10:24 PM:
- Renaud Lavoie via twitter: 2 NHL sources told Lavoie that Blue Jackets winger Rick Nash is on the trade market. Nash has a no-movement clause.
- Kevin Paul Dupont via twitter: A Bruins offer for Nash would likely have to include Rask-Krejci or Rask-Lucic at core.
- Aaron Portzline via twitter: Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson through a spokesman declines to comment on the report that Rick Nash is on the trade block.
Nash has a salary cap hit of $7.8 million 2017-18. His yearly salary is $7.5 million this year, $7.6 million in 2012-13, $7.8 million in 2013-14, $7.9 million in 2014-15, $7.9 million in 2015-16, $8 million in 2016-17, and $8.2 million in 2017-18.
