It ends when Zach Parise (and/or Ryan Suter) says so and don't you forget.

Seriously, did thes guys not know who the 29 other teams in the league were until yesterday? Figure it out and move on. The rest of the free agents waiting on them to make up their mind have got to be a little ticked.

I guess they figure if Schultz got a whole week, they should too.

I understand a night to sleep on it, but I'm surprised they haven't figured it out as of 4:00 EST on day two. Both of them dragging their feet, no less.

Told Carolina keeps coming hard at #CBJ for Rick Nash. Hurricanes are not on Nash's list as of today, but that's not stopping their pursuit.

I think Carolina would be a great destination for Nash.

i don't have the same problem I have with Nash rejecting Carolina as I do with him rejecting Ottawa.


Well within his rights to be skeptical of them being good this season

Carolina and San Jose have my favorite possible packages.

He'd get to play with Thornton or Eric Staal.

Thornton and Richards are on the wrong side of 30. Staal and Nash could be dominating together for years.

Jamie McBain, Ryan Murphy, Jussi Jokinen, Zac Dalpe, Victor Rask, other prospects, draft picks.

I would add Tuomo Ruutu to that said list, but his NTC kicked in yesterday.

Yep, him too.

Pretty much everyone besides Staal x2, Ward, Skinner and possibly Faulk I'd say is available in a Nash deal for that matter.

All that really matters though is what Nash thinks would be a great destination for Nash.

Pretty sure no one thought otherwise, nor did my statement imply I thought he cared about my thoughts.

Didn't you know I'm his agent? :p

I didn't insinuate that you did. Just pointing out that we can discuss this until we're blue in the face (or in the jackets) but Nash holds the trump card.

It is frustrating at times, but then again he earned it.

Keeping Skinner may be a financial mistake if Nash is going to Carolina.

Just sayin.

We created our own problem. I suggested trading him three years ago.

Everytime we hear a new team is making a push for Nash it's like Groundhog Day. They want our best player but don't want to give up anything but futures, picks and non-impact roster players. It's a shame, I blame this on Howson that he's torn this team down to the point that we don't have any choice but to rebuild. The more this process goes on, the more it's becoming clear that it's unlikely we'll be competitive for a long time.

Yes, and the team would have been better for it.

Or actually they would have been worse in the short term, and better in the long term.

That depends on their budget situation. The cap situation doesn't appear to be a large issue.

Depends if they are comfortable having half the salary cap going towards both Staals, Nash, Ruutu, and Ward.

With Skinner as RFA after this year. And a lackluster defense.

Does the cap even matter anymore? It's nearly doubled in 6 years. Large market teams can keep bumping up against it, and then come next offseason, it grows enough to let them sign the next big free agent.

(no not bitter about losing a season of hockey or anything...)
