Here is the latest from Larry Brooks on this early Sunday morning, seems we will find out one way or another today.
The trade deadline is 3 p.m. tomorrow, but Rangers general manager Glen Sather will attempt to resolve the issue today with Columbus counterpart Scott Howson, who has continued to demand an unreasonable bounty from the Eastern Conference leaders in exchange for the 27-year-old power winger who carries a cap hit of $7.8 million through 2017-18.
One informed source told The Post that Sather has held firm in his refusal to send 2009 first-rounder Chris Kreider, the Boston College winger who is regarded as a can’t-miss prospect, to the Blue Jackets for Nash. Neither will the general manager agree to move young blue-line chips Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto.
A second source told The Post that Sather has agreed to include 21-year-old defenseman Tim Erixon in the package that would go to Columbus in exchange for Nash, who has indicated a willingness to waive his no-move clause for a deal to a select number of big-market teams.
It is unclear whether Sather is willing include 2012 first-rounder J.T. Miller in the package for Nash that would include Brandon Dubinsky, a future first-rounder, and likely at least another well-regarded prospect.
