Imagine he wouldn't sign an extension and got traded and then the devils went on to win the cup this season without him.

How is that smart for CBJ? Most retarded thing I've ever heard.


Maybe Columbus wants to get Nash's contract off their books? Maybe they think Zach would be the better long-term investment? That being noted, the article is nothing more than the author thinking aloud...I don't think this something that has any chance of happening, or has ever been discussed by the people who matter. But we've seen teams sign players to these mega-deals before and decide to move them not long after they were signed...see the Flyers with Carter and Richards.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

The article was just speculation and pure rumor.... I took it at face value that it was just playing scenario's.... of course we will read these type of articles until Parise signs a contract....

Even for a trade rumor, this is pretty stupid. There is no way Zach would sign in Columbus given everything he's said about wanting to play on a winning team, and Columbus has to know that. There's also no way Columbus would trade afor a super-star rental by gettng rid of their own superstar in the deal, especially when they are the worst team in the NHL and have no realistic shot at making the playoffs.

And another reason: Columbus would not trade their best player who is signed for multiple years for a rental. Also, Parise won't want to stay there.

well everything i would've said has basically already been said. i am confident though, that whatever ends up happening will be our best option. because if we trade him, he was leaving anyway

People, people, people ... I think we're all missing the point here. The real question is: Will Lou allow Nash to continue wearing 61, or will he force him to take something below 30?

I can't wait until the trade deadline ends and all this inane speculation goes away. Two more weeks...

And another reason: Columbus would not trade their best player who is signed for multiple years for a rental. Also, Parise won't want to stay there.

Columbus is only 900 points out of a playoff spot, why wouldn't they trade for a rental? :lol:

Literrally almost anyone can write on Bleacher Report:

It's a joke. This guy has no insights into the thought processes of either team. Calling this a rumor is unfair to rumors.

In addition to having one of the best handles on the board, halfsharkalligatorhalfman also summed up this viability of this thread all too perfectly, "Calling this a rumor is unfair to rumors." I couldn't have said it better myself.

By the way, I didn't realize that when you type in the word, "Єklund (2.3% accurate)" in your post, the forum automatically adds the (2.3% accurate) into the copy. Man, how awesome is that? I'm still laughing. Ingenious.
