They're not going to get anything done. They may be "serious" but Howson is still asking for the world and then part of Mars.

Howson's high demands are somewhat well-known by now, I'm not sure what Holmgren was thinking he'd have to give up.

Howson's mad man approach to this has slowly turned him into a bit of a cult hero to me.

Despite logic, analysts, and probably his own mother telling him otherwise, Howson continues to march to the beat of his own drum.

Well we all know with the kind of return Howson wants he is anything but "serious".

Apparently, what Pannacio means is that both Howson and Holmgren have "serious" looks on their faces as they talk to each other.

Nash will be the last high profile player available this off-season. this can either work for him or leave him with a disgruntled player. I got my money on the latter

Sather: Howson, you win. We'll offer you Dubinsky, Kreider, and Staal for Nash.

Howson: I changed my mind. I want more! I want Lundqvist, 2006 era Jagr, and 1994 era Messier.

He's already reported to be frustrated, I really don't blame him one bit.

I agree here. Honestly this entire day these "reports" and twitter twits have made complete fools of themselves by putting every single bit that even remotely smells like news on twitter. It's revolting and has nothing to do with journalism. These idiots just poke at everything and eventually hit something.

Holmgren just signed L.Shenn to play with the younger brother. they'll not moving him in any trade. they're just driving the market price up.

Hopefully these rumors are true and the Flyers are close to getting Nash. Save us from potentially doing something unwise like giving up assets for a 7.8 mill cap hit Nash.

Philly has the same problem as the Rangers. Philly needed to swap JVR and Couturier or Schenn in the deal for Ryan or Nash. They had zero interest in swapping Couturier or Schenn in a deal for Ryan or Nash. Then they traded JVR for Schenn.

Between Zipay and Gross,it's a tie for dumbest white man in the world.

Gross was reporting Stralman was not receiving a QO when Katie Strang had already reported Stralman was given a QO.

Brooks is the only local guy that seems to have any kind of source within the organization. After all these years covering the team Zipay and Gross never have anything.

1- He has spent the last 10 years of his career doing nothing but losing hockey games. When you lose year after year, it's extremely difficult to break out of that, even in a new setting/environment. There's a reason why some guys (Bouwmeester for example) never play a single playoff game, even when they switch teams. At this point, it's pretty clear that regardless of talent, Nash is a loser.

2- Nash has, according to all accounts out of Columbus, been a key part of creating a "country-club atmosphere." He works how hard he wants to work, IF he feels like working. He also spreads that attitude around the locker room. This team is so young and still very impressionable. Now is not the time to add a cancerous presence.

The only reason you all want Nash is because of his stat line (even worse, because of an imaginary stat line that you've convinced yourselves he'll accomplish on this team). Even if it were Dubinsky for Nash straight up, AND if you assume that Dubi only matches his goal total from his worst ever season, you only gain a net of 20 goals.

You can get 20 goals in FA. You can get it without gutting the team. You can get it without adding a 7.8 million dollar player who creates a "country club" atmosphere and only knows how to lose.

For the sake of this team moving forward, I hope to God that Slats stays the hell away from Rick Nash.
Or I just watch him play one game and it's obvious that he easily be our most valuble player after Hank. Take your pick.

I kind of don't mind what Howson's doing. Like, I think it will work. I think he'll get a big haul for him.

I actually feel bad for Nash at this point. Only a little though.

Zipay: this just in Rangers will skate on ice again next season.

how about Adam Rotter? Has ever broke the news on anything? He's still talking about the McDonaugh singning on his blob.
