I believe Howsen is using the rangers to leverage other teams.

The Rangers aren't going to budge on most of their prospects. In addition they are only willing to give a limited number of assets in a possible deal. The offer is clearly not exciting CBJ.

If the Rangers were truly the only interested party or if a tweak here or there was needed then I believe the deal would have been done by now. I suspect the Rangers are holding firm and Howsen has another team or two interested in a price that nears the Rangers. CBJ can always accept a rather lowball bid so if Howsen misses the market and loses the Rangers he believes he loses little.

My guess is Nash goes elsewhere.
No, he's holding out for a Kreider/Stepan/Couture/Courtier/Schenn, and he will be waiting a long long time.
