Rick Nash is a goalscorer. We have the centers. Is there any way Detroit can trade for him? Picks and prospect? Maybe some players, but find it difficult that we have anyone with trade value from the NHL-squad that could be involved in this.
As much as I like Nash, and would want him a Red Wing, I do not see this happening... same conference, and division... Nash IS Columbus.. Unless Columbus moves to the east next year, or Detroit... def ain't happening.
I do find it amusing how people will always call him overrated. .
I'd love to have him but being division rivals and all I'm guessing it takes:
Wow, noway... not worth all that and the added cap hit. Maybe if he had a decent contract, but what are you going to do with the combined cap hits of Hank,Dats,Mule and Nash not to mention what is going to be needed to spend on defense. We could get a lot more bang for our buck if we are going to trade away all of that.
Ditto. Columbus would have to get something significant for him to not completely alienate their fans, and giving up a bunch for a guy who is signed to a market value to market value+ kind of deal isn't a good idea.
If he was expiring and in a position where Detroit could re-up with him in a lifetime deal with a reasonable cap hit, sure. Unfortunately for him...
