Then I don't understand why he would include the Kings on his "list." If he doesn't want to go to the west in general, why even include them?
It doesn't make sense...to me, one of the "rumors" is patently "false."
Personally, I would love to see this guy on our team, but I wouldn't want to give up Brown as part of the deal.
The first assumption was that we were, but every rumor since the very first speculation has been that he will not waive to go to the west. We made a substantial offer for him and then for both him and Carter. Lombardi would be more active in getting him if he were available to us. It is clear that he is not. Just goes to show that we were willing to put $7.8 million on the line for another superstar winger. It means that hands down we are going to be be throwing the bank at Parise over the summer. Unlikely as it is, we will still have a shot at him.
I think it's practical to think of the Rangers and Leafs in on Nash.
Do not be totally shocked if another eastern Canadian team is in the mix. Well, that leaves only OTT and MTL. Would not surprise me in the least to see either of those teams in those two media markets make a big move.
