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.





Helen St James of the Detroit Free Press. Article was posed on spector hockey today

http://www.freep.com...5042/1053/rss17


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



Spectors comment

http://spectorshocke...e-june-16-2012/



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

I don't care how much you hate Luongo..

If it's a deal for Nash, you trade Schneider. Not Luongo.

It's contract for contract. No chance were trading Schnieder for that contract. If were trading for Nash,would way rather Luongo going the other way.

On many fronts this makes sense for both teams, but no matter how much hockey sense it makes I can't get over a couple of things:

Why would Luongo waive his NTC to go to a perennial bottom-feeding team (a couple of playoff games the exception of course) when he was recently one win away from the holy-grail?

More importantly, if his wife didn't want to live in Vancouver (considered globally as one of the most desireable places in the entire world to live) what makes anyone think his wife would want to live in the CBJ (yes, I know it would be closer to her home in Fla, but let's be real, it's still CBJ)?

Luongo isn't gonna wave his NTC to go to the worst team in the league. At least with him in Toronto they'd make the playoffs.

Schneider, Booth, Ballard, and a 1st for Nash.

They get a top 6 forward, a top 4 defenseman (face it, the only reason Ballard played bottom pairing minutes was because our left side defence is stacked), a really good goalie who's more than ready to be a starter, and a 1st round pick round add to their prospect pool.

Daniel ~ Henrik ~ Nash
Burrows ~ Kesler ~ Kassian

--> Burrows and Kesler have unreal chemistry; Kassian will be the big physical presence, is strong on the boards, and can make some good passes down low.

Not saying this trade is possible for you guys but 7.8 million dollars for a bonafide star is pretty damn good. This guy plays with heart. It is a killer but you would think teams will make space for a player of this calibre.

So we are officially in a bit of a silly season, and in general I stay away from the completely crazy rumors that persist on the internet, or in the case of the Leafs having interest in Nabokov or Turco I will occasionally debunk them...however, I have been getting inundated with emails, PMs, and questions on twitter regarding a few rumors that are out there...so here goes.. I will address the rumors and follow with what I have or haven't heard...If you all like this format, maybe Wacky Wednesdays could be a regular feature. I wouldn't do it more than once a week, because I am too busy talking to actual sources and attempting to provide you all with as much unique information as possible.

No way Luongo waives his NTC.

Even sending Schneider there seems like a terrible thing to do to such a character guy. Poor Schneds, presumably, he would have to at least play there for a whole year, don't sign contract and the following year he becomes UFA.

Schneids, if you sign a contract with Van, make sure there is a NVM or else Gillis might sign and trade you to Columbus.

Depth wins a cup more than a dominant line on paper. And if we have Kesler with no goals, Higgins with no goals, Burrows with one goal, Raymond with no goals, Booth with no goals, you could have a top line of Lemieux, Gretzky and whoever and still not win.

LOL... I wonder if his going to Columbus would remind him of his Florida days?

A mish-mash of players with little to no playoff aspirations, draft busts, and he'll have to stand on his head behind the young team... good times had by all :lol:

Luongo will not be goin to Columbus. The only deal here is centered around Schneider two top 9 forwards (now or future) and a defenseman.

Wouldn't Cory Schneider plus whatever else for Rick Nash make Us a better Team next Year. It's likely Luongo is leaving, but He did sign here two Years ago. Mike Gillis is responsible for the Goalie controversy by keeping Cory for so long. Teams have been asking about Cory for a while. Maybe, Mike G. is right in keeping Cory. If I'm the Canucks I'd want Rick Nash right now. The Canucks would have to shep some Salary though. That isn't easy.

I love Chris Higgins, but the only reason I included him in the trade is because to get something you have to give up something valuable, if were not getting Nash, or any other huge UFA, i wanna keep Higgins for as long as possible

Nash, Parise, Weber...these guys could all cause locker-room chaos. These guys are big fish and team captains. Suddenly you throw them into the Nucks locker room with its core leadership, egos etc (Hank, Bieksa, Kesler) and who is captain? who is the real leader?

Think Bieksa's leadership role will be in tact if Weber signs? How about Hank with Nash on the team (makes more money and is more of a physically dominating, carry the team on his back type)?

These big acquisitions can cause issues within the team which is partly why they often don't make the huge difference everyone expects. Players are forced to take on different roles and lose influence. It can be tricky.

he is a great player and would score 40 goals on this team but we get a player who could have just as big of a impact while saving some money on the cap....it does make sense for some teams to acquire nash but it doesnt for the canucks
