They were a late inclusion in the short list, so by my count, it leaves:

Edmonton
Vancouver
Ottawa
Minny
No offense to the Wild, but after all this talk of him wanting to play in Canada I can't believe they were ever a serious contender. Same goes for TB. I guess you have to take the rangers seriously though... cuz they're the rangers. P.S. I bet Nash gets traded there very soon.

You didn't order the "The Decision: Justin Schultz Edition" pay-per-view?

I'm with you, but they were an inclusion into the short list. So I mean, we shouldn't assume they are out until they're out.

why doesn't he just announce the team he is going with? I dunno, the way this kid is dragging this out, playing the media, has made me less and less concerned if he doesn't choose the Oil. if he does, great. if not, no biggie.

Well, they only have 4 defensemen under contract and one of them (Gonchar) is going to be a UFA in a year (and at almost 40, probably retiring) and Philips the year after. Karlsson, and Cowen are both terrific young defensemen, but that's pretty much all there is in Ottawa going forward long term.

That, and there's got to be some appeal in being a part of a potentially great young defense even if he won't be the #1 guy.

He's not playing the media. He's likely simply informing the teams of his decision. Sources in those organizations are probably leaking info to the media.

Alfredsson is getting up there as well and Zabinejad doesn't look like a superstar prospect.

Alfredsson may not even be back for next season. If they acquired Nash somehow, I could see Alfie returning, but without him their top 6 looks looks impotent.

Every time the (1) appears on my Twitter tab, my heartbeat goes into overdrive. I'm terrified of opening the new tweet.

Or maybe his agency likes doing things this way? There is a reason that they make lots of money for being agents.

Karlsson really makes that offence go. Damn, I wish that we had a defenceman like that...
