When has callahan scored 30, let alone put up 38 and 45? (orginially mistakenly took assists for goals). He'd also be playing with Richards.. which may not click, but Parise is the definition of a goal scorer.

Howson had a cocky smirk when he did a NHLN interview when mentioned Rick Nash. He said something along the lines of "We don't have to trade him today. We don't have to trade him tomorrow."

That was before his knee surgery. He's more of a grinding forward now than he was a few years ago.

Feeling like Howson doesn't want to trade Nash and this is just all a show for him

One thing I hope is that Slats congratulates the Kings for winning the Stanley Cup.

So does this mean the whole fiasco will be over sunday? He doesn't have to trade him for the next 6 years.

I think, that he thinks that he has all these teams in a vice grip.

Always wondered what fantasy world is like.

until Zach signs with one, Ryan is traded to one, guys step up as goal scorers, than Howson will be left with how many on his "list"?

There will always be interest in Nash. Nash wants out of CLB. There will never be a shortage of teams to add on to the list.

But there is a shortage of teams on his list and if they bow out because they got another guy or players step up and produce more, Nash will become less wanted and less valuable. Now is the time to move him. You can get something really good from a team, but he is settling for nothing right now.

Nash situation appears headed into free agency and perhaps beyond, say, late July.

The asking price for Bobby Ryan

Quote:
The Flyers remain in the mix for Anaheim’s Bobby Ryan, but this same source said that the price is very steep – Brayden Schenn or Sean Couturier, plus James van Riemsdyk. The Flyers, for the moment, aren’t willing to part with either Schenn or Couturier.

Jordan Staal asking price

Quote:
Scuttlebutt on Staal situation: Pens apparently want a top defenseman in return. Stumbling block? Could be. At least tonight.

They were effective (similar to the Devils and Kings' 4th lines this year) because they had the bodies that could be battering rams. Kids like Stepan, Seguin, Eberle - they need time to fill out and understand where they need to go and when to be successful in playoff games. Those types of kids with their style of game just take a little more time. I think body type plays a crucial role.
Patience is important and players with slight builds and finese games do take a little more time but you really can't lump Stepan in with players like Eberle ans Seguin who are both infinitely more talented than Stepan is. Seguin has already had a lot of sucess in the playoffs last year with a cup winning team.

It would never happen, but could you imagine Richards, Staal and Stepan as our centers? or we could even move Stepan for Ryan

Howson wants another team to build his team. He has been Columbus GM since 2007. The team hasn't improved since he left Edmonton to join Columbus. Edmonton is another disaster.

I certainly hope that you're not putting Callahan on the same level as Nash as a goal scorer?
