No one has ever been happy in Columbus.


I'm sure their millions can comfort them...

The league should block this trade ala Chris Paul. What a joke. New York had so many better prospects who shoulda been expendable. Maybe Howson thinks guys can emerge playing in bigger roles. I kinda wish Gilly went after Nash after seeing this return. Schneider plus a little bit for Nash woulda been nice.

Come out of your basements and admit defeat webmasters! RT @DownGoesBrown: None of the anonymous insiders have Rick Nash news in their feeds

Hahahaha brilliant!

What a steal for the Rangers. If THAT is the huge price Columbus was asking for Nash, I don't know what to think.

Rangers and Flyers own every off-season it seems. Good thing those small market teams are still around to be NHL farm clubs for the big markets. At least those two big markets.

We are going to WRECK the central division this year. Surprised that Columbus didn't go after a goaltending prospect, defense and goaltending are the best places to start a rebuild. Trading away your best player for Rangers depth players and a prospect is not going to help your situation.

Rangers just stole Nash, I didn't think the GM of the Rangers had anything left in him but he proved me wrong.

#CBJ also sending 3rd pick and minor-league defenseman to #NYR in Nash trade. Told defenseman is not David Savard.

Brandon Sutter, a 8th overall pick, and a College Developed 2nd round D-man.

I'm sure Pitt would have given that offer for Nash.

Anisimov - Big center with ability to play on the wing, in his prime. Fills the need for a center spot or the need to replace a big winger. (Not a Nash replacement of course, but adds size back into the lineup)

Dubinsky - Good two-way centerman who can play wing and in his prime. Wanted this guy on the Canucks personally at one point. 40-50 point player when healthy.

Erixon - Young big minute dman who adds a ton to the future of the CLB d-corps, especially if paired with Murray.

1st.....could be used as a tradeable asset or one to move up in next years draft or used to select a targeted player....so many possibilities here.....

It's not that bad of a trade actually. The points from Nash will be replaced, and they get a bunch more solid depth spead out over the team.

Nash - Richards - Gaborik

Wow...

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

From the value of those players. It would be Booth, 1st round pick, Jensen and Connauton straight up for nash.


Yep, pretty much. Any one who wouldn't do that deal?

Well with Gaborik getting older and due for another long term injury, I don't see New York getting that much better. But obviously this was a major win for the Rangers.

This is what Howson held out for? I honestly can't believe that this was the best offer...

Either way, more good players moving out East is always a good thing.

They could had Raymond, Ballard, and a 1st for Nash, maybe even a bluechip prospect like Prab Rai, or Tochkin.

The thing that people don't pay attention to is this - they weren't going to get a "star" player in return because most star players have NTC/NMC and what star with the right to veto a trade destination would say "YES" to going to Columbus?

Howson could only realistically get 2nd line caliber players, prospects, and picks. I do wonder what the Bruins were offering though, as it seems they would have had plenty of decent forwards to offer...

Horrible trade for Columbus


This trade basically equates to Raymond, Hansen, Tanev and a 1st

Erixon pulled a Semi - Justin Schultz on CGY and got traded to NYR.

Now he's in Columbus. FAIL.


Hahahah, yeah - was waiting to see if someone remembered that.

I don't believe in karma, but that is still some sweet karma!

If that was the case, half of Milbury's deals never would have gone through.

They both realized they had to up the ante when Gillis landed Garrison.

Haha NHLSourcesSay reported that the 4th piece was McDonagh.
A minute later Dreger reports that it was, in fact, Anisimov

Further proof that these rumour guys are just taking wild guesses

Bad trade for CBJ imo. Could have gotten a lot more than that for Nash


Actually they couldn't.....which is why nothing was happening for so long.

This was the best they could get, and it was time for all parties to move on. It's not that bad of a trade. Hell, even Gillis thinks CLB did well.

Possibly the beginning of the end for the Blue Jackets in Columbus. Bottom 5 attendance, losing millions every year, and most likely another lottery pick season and more of the same problems.
