Rick Nash WILL NOT be traded but if he is, I think one of Dubinsky or Anisimov, plus one of Thomas or Kreider goes the other way in a package, as well as a 1st.
My other predictions:
Johnny Oduya to Chicago
Mike Knuble back to Boston
Samuel Pahlsson to Toronto
Roman Hamrlik to St. Louis
Greg Zanon to Pittsburgh
Bryan Allen back to Vancouver
David Jones to Pittsburgh Mark Eaton to New York RangersChris Campoli to Phoenix
PA Parenteau stays with New York Islanders
Jason Garrison stays in Florida
Jaroslav Spacek to Boston
Andrei Kostitsyn to Nashville
Paul Gaustad stays in Buffalo
If I can think of any more, I'll come back and post them before tomorrow.
If the price for Nash is Dubinsky, Kreider and a 1st then the Capitals counter with Laich, Eakin, and COL's 1st.
I mean seriously, that's not even remotely close enough to get Nash.
Certainly won't be the price for Nash, but that's what the package should start at. Obviously there'd be more going back Columbus' way, but that would be the basis on a Nash deal IMO. However, I don't think the Jackets will be able to pry McDonagh away in the deal. I think there's a more likelihood they land Staal. If the Jackets think they can get McDonagh coming back, I think they'll be disappointed.

If anything, I think the Flames are buyers and won't trade any of their better defensemen. Also, Campoli burned his bridges in Chicago. They don't want him back. One more thing, Martinek is on IR for the year; he won't be traded since his season is over.
