Tim Panaccio is reporting that the Blue Jackets are pushing Nash on Philly. My speculation is that the offers are nowhere near what they're looking for.

CBJ pushing Nash deal in Philly: *******/wCIuQH

Yet, sources continue to tell that the Flyers are listening to Columbus, which had two scouts at Saturday’s game and neither were here to look at the Penguins.

One of those “scouts” was general manager Scott Howson, who again met with Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. The other was Craig Patrick, ex-Penguins’ GM.

As for the asking price for a player of Nash’s caliber? Probably Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn.

But … it may be something else. It may be James van Riemsdyk, another player, plus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. Or a high draft pick besides a player.

The Flyers don’t want to move Couturier or Schenn, but if I’m Howson, I want both those players.

Said one club source, “rumors, just rumors,” adding that what the Flyers desire most is more defensive help but … a larger deal “that makes sense” is not out of the question.
