The Rangers are bidding against themselves. They are the best fit to complete the trade.
And patience is the best thing the Rangers have going for them in this slow-speed chase. Nash hasn't much wavered from his initial stance around the trade deadline this past season -- he has a full no-trade clause and seems willing to waive it only for a select few teams, even though Columbus general manager Scott Howson is practicing his own game of patience, hoping that Nash will grow weary of the holding pattern and agree to widen his pool of acceptable destinations.
It's one big game of chicken between the Rangers, the Jackets and Nash, and the Rangers have believed since back in January, when Glen Sather first inquired about Nash, that patience will win out. That Nash wants to come to New York and Howson's high demands will have to come down before the 2012-13 season begins.
And, so, the Rangers wait.
