CBJ is a long way from competing. Adding Carter to a Nash centric core didn't work. And there is probably very little budget room left to add much more in the way of UFAs. Plus, the GM doesn't seem creative enough to win in the trade market.

It might be in ownership's best interest to accumulate abundant, cheap, young assets that can patiently re-energize the the core, rather than hold onto what will eventually become a disgruntled, and expensive star player.

A Nash and Carter combo may be more appealing than Nash alone if the bundle provides for a buyer's discount. Their average cap hit of $6.55M is much more palatable than Nash's solo cap hit of $7.8M

I wonder what the ask is...


First, A prospect, decent roster player, some salary heading back.....or more?

Hard to say if his long term contract makes him more valuable than a UFA or not...

I didn't check how much cap space Boston has but only because I'm terrified at the idea of them somehow adding Nash.

May God have mercy on us all.

That would be easier if you still had Elliot eh?

A couple of weeks ago, a reliable LA source (mayorNHL) said that BJ's are asking for Johnson, Brown, and 2 prospects/pics. Dean counteroffer with Brown, Bernier, and Martinez for Nash & Sanford. DL does not want to trade JJ.

Thats not that bad of a deal if I was LA. Maybe change Martinez to a different player or a pick and I would take that deal if I was Columbus, but of course I don't run that organization .

Maybe Carter and Wiz didn't see eye to eye with Nash? Maybe mgt. decides to cut one loose rather than two?

We could add $9.8M today without any roster move.

I don't see what Boston would have (and part with) that Columbus would want.

its no secret that Nash hasn't been the best Captain...I really think he wasn't ready for it when it was handed to him...if paired with the right line, he's a 40g guy...unfortunately what columbus has given him is far from the right line

If DL won't move Johnson I could see CBJ wanting Forbort+1st+2nd along with brown and bernier.
