Wow, that gets you Nash? One 2nd-3rd pairing d-man, a pick and a good prospect. Sheesh. I don't believe it.

That's way more than NJ gave up for Kovalchuk. I don't really see why Columbus is suddenly obsessed with defense though, unless they are trying to move Fedor Tyutin.

Both Del Zotto and McDonagh have been real good this year. I hope they do it because it would absolutely cripple their d by having Stralman and Eminger take more prominent roles

Well naturally it should be, as Nash isn't an impending UFA.

Is it way more though?

Maybe I'm undervaluing MDZ/McDonagh, and/or Tim Erixon (all I know is that he played with Larsson in Sweden :giggle: )

nash's contract is horrible, guys. he'd probably fetch more if he were a pending UFA. such is the world of the salary cap.

I think it's definitely more.

I'd almost rather have the UFA Nash than the Nash with the bad contract.

Ah okay, I see now. That contract almost carries a negative value, of sorts. Hurts his overall value.

But anyway..Wolski to Florida..cap dump?

Nash to Rangers, e5..wait for it..

"From what I hear re NYR: CBJ wants Stepan badly, but will "settle" for Hagelin. Dubinsky, Kreider, Stepan-or-Hagelin & pick (not nec. a 1st)"

"Of course, there could be a little more coming from CBJ side, but that's just the latest I've come across. Boils down to Stepan or Hagelin"

TFP is a terrible source but it would be something pretty awesome if they traded Hagelin, probably their best young forward and on a cheap contract, for Nash.

If the Rags get Nash there's no way they're getting Parise over the summer.

If this trade goes through I wonder how much cap room they'll have this summer.

Bullsh!t.

Nash, Richards, Gaborik is solid enough, but add solid net keeping by Lundqvist and they're almost a lock to get to the SCF

Doubt they would have been in the running, anyway. Detroit's the big team to worry about. Only 10 teams currently have more cap space next year that NJ, but I doubt Zach would consider any of them if he's serious about "best chance to win":

$41 mil - Colorado

$33 mil - Nashville

$29 mil - Winnipeg

$28 mil - St. Louis

$28 mil - Phoenix

$28 mil - Isles

$27 mil - Ottawa

$23 mil - Anaheim

$23 mil - Dallas

$23 mil - Florida

$22 mil - Devils

$22 mil - Detroit

Unfortunately I have to agree. Lundqvist can carry them all on his own to the cup. If Lundqvist comes back to earth, then I think their chances are pretty slim, but don't count on it.

I agree in the sense that I think they will be favored, but anything more than that is silly. Theres way too much time left in the season for something to go wrong. If healthy, the Rags (w/ Nash) will be a force, especially if he gels. The Cup talk will have real weight to it, but saying they are almost a lock, nah. They're not going to storm anyone in the playoffs because of how competitive the top 8 in the east will be. Lundqvist has done nothing in his career to show he won't crack when the chips are down.

Clarkson has more goals than Nash. nuff said

Columbus is an awful team though. Look at Elias's numbers last year, for example. Not a great year for him, but, as he's proven this year, it certainly wasn't all his fault.

I think Nash would thrive on a competitive team.

this is true - which is why i'm for it. i have to think that parise ends up with one of these teams as of right now (Nash would remove NYR from equation): NJD, NYR, DET, MIN, CHI.

If the Rags get Nash we might as well hand them the cup now.

the rangers' cup hopes are all based on lundqvist. it's really that simple. if he is as good as he's been for most of the season, they will be very difficult to beat. depending on what they give up from the current roster (and recent reports of hagelin or mcdonaugh/del zotto make me smile) their skaters could actually wash out.

yeah i was kidding haha but still

Im not a cap guru but does NY really want a guy signed a 7.8M long term? They have a lot of young defensemen who are will be getting some nice contracts.

Howson better not just take the best package before the deadline. Nash is a franchise player be smart.
