Howson is going to be dealing from a position of weakness now that Nash said he wants out. Don't think it's in Nash's character, but he could decide to be a holdout until he is traded. Then Howson would be forced to move him for cheaper.

One way or another, Nash's days in Columbus are numbered.

Burke I think in time will trade Kadri, and I don't think there is a spot for him on our top 6, where he needs to play. Because he needs ice time.

Maybe Burke would consider Franson, Blacker, Percy, Gunnarson or Holzer instead? Still I don't think one of those defenseman plus Kadri would be enough for Nash.
