Boclair: Confirmed--Preds in the Nash sweeps

Figured this could probably be its own thread apart from the TDL thread.

Holy effing crap!!!

He'd be crazy not to. Adding himself into this lineup instantly puts us in a category with the elite western teams--elite eastern teams as well. Especially when you consider that the rumored offers only touch Wilson and possibly Lindback from the active roster.

I heard the offer is Wilson, Ellis, Lindback, and high picks.

I think Columbus would be stupid not to take the deal, but wondering if he could be had for less than that...

Edit: Also wondering if Nash is saying "No" to Preds. Interesting development and could be one to watch. I have a feeling as late Sunday rolls around Howson will be pressing Nash to add Nashville to the list or accept the deal. IF we don't revoke it and go elsewhere.

We don't get into the Nash sweepstakes with Pickard, Foss, Stortini, and a 6th rounder.

Xm said it was laakso not lindback.

All I can say is if we trade for Nash and suter still doesn't sign then he's a lying sack of crap

This...which he may already be, who knows?

Can't we merge this with the other thread? I'm too lazy to refresh that many pages.

Lindback makes way more sense than a dime a dozen minor league dman

It may, but they're already getting a hell of a lot of quality in Wilson, Ellis and the 1st. Laakso could be for AHL depth, as a fill-in guy for the rest of the season, or as another contract cleared for the Preds, for whatever reason.

Glen Sather's reaction....

"Gonna get Rick Nash!"



*Nashville makes offer*





*Glen puts arms up and walks away*

What other NHL city would name the town after Nash? I hope that it is Blum. I would hate to lose Ellis. Long term Wilson has more upside than Nash, but the Preds want to win this year.

I have heard that Lindback/Blum are possible inter-changing parts to this deal but I have also heard that Columbus is more interested in the Ellis/Laakso trade. I spoke with an insider that pointed out Columbus would be stupid to not take the trade...but in all probability it's Nash who isn't accepting the Team. So take it for what it's worth.

I can't see us getting outbid. The question is does Howson have the guts to accept the most value and does Nash waive to come here?

I was waiting for you to weigh in

It's like in Pee Wee's Big Adventure:

"I say...we let him go!"

Smith has already caught up to Willy in his rookie season...he'll be an game changer before long and could be that top-3 center that we've always wanted. I think Wilson's getting into his prime but Smith's ceiling looks so much higher than Wilson's right now...the kid is amazing.

I see what you are saying, but to me Wilson has more tools. Size, better in his own end, strength, consistency.

With that said, I really dont want to trade Wilson but Nash is one of the few players id be content trading him for. Ill be upset... But its Nash.

If Poile could pull it off with out getting rid of Willy id be a happy happy feller. Make it happen DP!

I agree.

I think Smith will probably have the edge offensively, but I think Wilson is the better overall player now, and probably will continue to be.

This whole Nash situation is fascinating. So many factors at play here.

Who is on Nash's list?

Does Nash expand his list to include Nashville if he wants to get out before the deadline?

Does Howson cave in and trade him to TOR/NYR for less just because Nash refuses anywhere else?

Or does Howson stand his ground if he doesn't get a better offer from NYR/TOR and holds onto Nash until the offseason?


I think it's fair to speculate Nashville has the best offer right now. I can't remember being this excited for the trade deadline since we picked up Foppa. Buckle up ladies and gents and enjoy the ride!
