I had a hunch the other day that Sather may be hesitant to give up more than 1 roster player in a package for Nash, he is probably offering something similar to the package that was rumored during the deadline.

Columbus needs forwards, but we need forward depth as well. There just may not be a good match here.

Lev may be on to something here... perhaps Portzline and others are playing up how desperate Slats is for Nash.

Sather will wait it out and try to get Nash at his price... but he's not going to up his offer if it means the Rangers will have another hole to fill. I don't think Stepan is going anywhere because a #2C is not so easy to find right now. And, as RB said, losing both Dubi and Arty in the same deal means that we are losing two players who have the capability to play center. It's going to be tough to find cheap replacement players considering how weak the FA market is.
