The most likely destination for Nash is the New York Rangers, who, like everyone else, covet pending unrestricted free agent Zach Parise but who were told earlier this week that Parise doesn't consider that a realistic move for him. The Rangers are still looking to get over the top after losing in the Eastern Conference finals to New Jersey, and need help up front, as it's expected star Marian Gaborik will be sidelined five to six months following shoulder surgery.
The other likely destination is Vancouver, where the Canucks are looking to unload Roberto Luongo and figure out a way to make good on years of unfulfilled playoff promise. The San Jose Sharks will be looking to make a move, too, after losing in the first round despite making a big splash at last year's draft by trading for defenseman Brent Burns.

I’ve heard talk of the Canucks offering up Luongo if he were willing to go to Columbus, where his [color=#009900 !important][background=transparent !important]former[/background][/color] goalie coach now works with the Blue Jackets. It would certainly be a blockbuster move if that were to be done, but one wonders just how keen Luongo would be to go to a perpetually rebuilding team like the Jackets
Also Carol Schram who is a contributer to the bleacherreport speculated on this a few days ago as well. I would anything from the Bleacherreport with a grain of salt but hey maybe something is up
Interesting speculation coming out (with factsÉ) considering Columbus Beat Writer Aaron Portzline said yesterday that as many as 10 teams had contacted CBJ for Nash
