7 years of NHL experience
to become an unrestricted free agent under the new CBA .. never mind the 27 years of age .. Players that join the league as 18 year olds will be free at 25..
If I'm also not mistaken, no player's salary can exceed more than 20% of the team's payroll. So either Nash would have to accept less money to stay with the Jackets than he would ordinarily get or Columbus will have to increase their payroll/budget to meet Nash's salary demands.
Prospect development in Toronto has never been better then this ..
heck go a head and trade away draft picks in order to win a Cup if you can get these kind of 25 year olds as UFA and all it takes is money where being the NHL's richest team will have its perks ..
