Hockey Break was the one who reported that JJ would be unhappy in Columbus. They are wrong about almost everything, which explains why that tweet made zero sense.

Who would be happy there?

How they got a team is beyond me.

The receiving team needs to consider it though, right?

Here's why I think LA gets the deal done for Nash.

They missed out on Gabby (for whatever reason)
They missed out on Kovy (again, for whatever reason)

Now they have an opportunity to use what they have extra of in Bernier (although I'm not as much a believer as some) and they do have some defensive depth (again, I think that Hickey has been a bust) but if the trade is truly Bernier, JJ and a 1st then I think that they will get the deal done.

I think that if Bernier was really what everyone thinks he will be, he'd be on pace for more than 15 games played.

I think the Kings would be looking to unload the Salary that Quick carries and retain this "future No. 1"

Truth be told, Bernier's numbers have been (at best) pedestrian at the NHL level.

True, but do you think ANY player would be thrilled to be traded to the worst team in the league?

Hate quoting Bucci when it comes to hockey, I think he's a clown. Same guy who wrote an article that you couldn't rebuild in NY WHILE the Rangers were rebuilding But figured the info was out there so I would supply...

CLB wouldn't want Kreider. They need d-men and a goalie.

He's right about vets always preferring a proven commodity over the unknown.

I'm pretty sure they'd take Kreider lol. Kreider would probably hold out and get traded to Boston

That is just an inherently stupid statement. Of course, the Ranger players would want Rick Nash. But, it's just as likely the believe they can win without Rick Nash

Always need to have a 'win now' mentality.

Does having Chris Kreider at his full potential in later years outweigh having a Rick Nash in his prime NOW? But of course I understand the excitement of having a prospect that could be amazing.

if we trade Kreider at all before he gets to play here im going to flip. especially for a guy who's 7+ million and only scored 70 points once in his career.

Or he goes back for 1 year of Grad school, becomes a UFA in August of 2013, and signs an ELC with us anyway.

Really hoping Bucci is dead ass wrong in this one. It sounds like a 12 year old ranting about how badly he wants Rick Nash.

Seriously, the names i'm hearing about Columbus asking for; DZ, Kreider, Erixon. They can shove it up their ass. We're not exactly desperate.

LOL someone wrote this: "If Dubi gets paid 4.2 million to score 4 goals, I'll gladly take Nash's 20+ goals at 7 million." Guy has a point, but at the same time, Dubi does many other things than score goals that he is probably much better at than Nash.

How would you feel about that? Would that be a good signing? For that much money?

If you're wavering on that question then how in the world could you want to make a trade for him for the reported asking price. Trading for him is essentially giving him that contract plus surrendering some of our best assets. You'd really really really have to be all in for the cup to even consider it a good idea. Cause the ramifications after this season would be daunting.
My post above is from page 3 of this thread, dated February 14th.

Beginning of Brooks' article today:



A slightly different question:

If Rick Nash had been an unrestricted free agent last summer, would anyone have thought it a great idea for the Rangers to sign the power winger to a seven-year, $54.6 million contract carrying a cap hit of $7.8 million per?

Would general manager Glen Sather have really gone all in on Nash, making him not only the highest-paid player on the team, but the fifth-highest paid player (per cap hit) in the NHL while committing to him through 2017-18?


And if the answer to that question is even “not likely,” let alone, “probably not,” much less, “are you nuts?” even while acknowledging free agents get premium prices because teams don’t have to relinquish valuable assets in order to add them, then why would Sather make that commitment now when the cost will include prime beef?



I'm flattered Brooksie
