There's more to it than that. Both Ottawa and Buffalo dropped out quickly after being told they weren't on Nash's list. JR could have done the same and gone after some other wingers that were available (Semin, Parenteau, etc.). He didn't.

He's put in an offer to Columbus, an apparent "substantial" one. And he's made comments about how "he can wait as long as he needs to get that top 6 winger. Whether it takes weeks, months or a year." That makes it sound like it's a simply a matter of waiting on the pieces to fall into play.

Your obsession with this list is funny, since it's already come out that if Howson waits this out just a little longer, Nash could expand his list.
