NTC, damn. I wonder if he would waive it to go close to his home. Then again maybe he wouldn't want to play at home with all the pressure. Anyhow, doesn't matter, we could just go with my 2nd offer.

Fine, but last I checked Nash is signed through next season. There's no way Columbus is trading him anyway so people need to stop with the ridiculous offers that make no sense for Columbus.

Also don't give me the anyone can be traded ....Gretzky was traded, Jagr was traded spiel...there were certain circumstances that led to those and well...frankly...Nash isn't going anywhere. Scott Howson would be tarred and feathered out of town if he accepted some of these outrageously bad offers.

Bergeron is teh suck du jour. You see, some Boston fans have yet to break free of their cynical past and Bergeron... well he looks like he missed a whole year. Instead of looking forward to Bergeron regaining form later in the year and essentially acting as a late-season acquisition that doesn't cost anything, they'd rather clamor for Krejci's promotion and claim the Jones Incident is equivalent to Eric Lindros crackng Joe Thornton in the face.

Difference is, Bergeron goes into corners just as quickly as he used to. He's a little behind game speed and his offense leaves a little bit to be desired, but he's coming around.

Add this to the fact that Boston is woefully shallow at the LW position, and suddenly B's fans are seeing Lucic size with Kessel skill and imagining what might be.

Until this year when he will eclipse 70. And there's more to hockey than just points, Nash is a great two way player. Oh yeah, and he's the face of the franchise and most marketable player on the team. And hes the captain and only 24 years old. Makes perfect sense he'd be traded

So on one hand, we need to keep making threads to try and steal Nash from Columbus, yet he's overrated.

But i'm done in this thread it will only end badly.

Keep dreaming. It starts with Hemsky.



I wouldn't do it from a Leaf POV. We need to rebuild with that 1st 09, and we could just wait until 2010 just in case he is free. No need to rush things.
Hemsky's a hell of alot better than Nash! try Nash and a 1st for a guy that could hit 100 points soon and is on pace for around 90. It doesnt need to start with Hemsky.

If Hemský would play under Hitch forgot on his productivity. Nasher is better than Hemmer.

That would be the desperation move to end all desperation moves if the CBJ did that. I don't even think if Nash were yelling "Trade me right f-ing now!" and knocking stuff over in Howson's office, would we move him straight up for a 2nd.

We got a 1st and a 4th for Adam Foote last season, and that was when he forced his way out.

I love Mealticket as much as anyone, but if the jackets don't make the playoffs this season and at least get out of the first round next season, there is a real chance Nash may test the market in the 09-10 offseason.


He could probably get more money and not even have to play as big a role as he does now. He wouldn't be burdened with being the captain, being counted on to provide the lion's share of the offense, playing under Hitchcock, and he could conceivably have a better chance at immediate results. Nash will be in his mid twenties by that time, the time to sign him to a 10 plus year deal will have passed, if he signs it, his career will end in Columbus, unless he's traded. I just think something like a 2 or 3 year deal near max by a team on the brink with plenty of offensive support would be enough to sway Nash. Does anybody see Nash being Brady-esque in taking less money than he could get elsewhere to address areas of need?

I have a hard time believing Columbus management would be willing to shell out Ovechkin-esque money for Nash, not till I see it. And do we want to be handcuffed to a player that long? Even one thats supposed to be "the Franchise"?

I know some of my fellow CBJ poster bethren/sisteren won't like it, but there it is.

No Nash isnt a great 2 way player. The defensive side of his game has come a long way but hes still just an average 2 way player. Statements like this is partly why he gets the overrated tag from other fanbases.

Hes never had over 70 points, hes had half a season at a ppg pace and he shared the Richard trophy one time with 2 other players. People use Hitchcocks system as an excuse, use his lack of teammates for an excuse and the list goes on. Superstar players make their teammates better not the other way around. Nash is more of a complimentary guy rather than a guy you build a team around. Some of these offers are actually pretty damn good for Nash. Hemsky+ , Bergeron+ are actually great deals for the Jackets.

How much does he get in return? Remember that his contract length is the same as Kovalchuk's.
Nash with a contract i'm ready to give both Kost and a pick.

with no contract.. Fischer+Maxwell and 1rst pick in 2010
