There is no doubt that Glen Sather lusted to bring Rick Nash to New York, but when the Rangers’ general manager stuck to his guns in resisting Columbus’ demands that the package in return would have to include either Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto plus either Derek Stepan or Carl Hagelin, plus Boston College winger Chris Kreider and Brandon Dubinsky, talks that went to the wire on Monday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline ultimately went nowhere.

Columbus GM Scott Howson rejected what is believed a Rangers' final offer of Dubinsky, 21-year-old defenseman Tim Erixon, 2011 first-rounder J.T. Miller, 2010 second-rounder Christian Thomas and a first-round selection in this June's Entry Draft.

So, to clarify, Howson's demands were:

- one of McD/MDZ
- one of Stepan/Hagelin
- Kreider
- Dubi

At the end, we finally ponied up and offered:

- Dubi
- Erixon
- Miller
- Thomas
- 1st round pick

I don't know if I'm more stunned at Howson's demand or that he turned down our last offer.

Yeah, go **** yourself, Howson. I am MORE than completely okay with how this went down.
