Everyone knows Fedorov is going nowhere with that contract so in order to make any meaningful changes they are going to have to trade a big name.

How is he in a slump. He has proven he is not capable of even 60 points and showed it again this year. He is a offensive player who sucks in defense, leadership skills, neutral zone play, anything else, and he still cant even score 60 points in a season. He is a joke.
You need to temper your comments a bit. Nash a joke? A 23 yr old with 116 career goals who has been stuck playing with the jackets. Your comments are the joke. And what the heck do you know about his leadership skills?

Nash is playing a steady 19 to 20 minutes a game

Combining regular strength Offense and Defense? Last year he was a plus 5. This year a minus 8. WITH COLUMBUS. For Mtl Koivu was -21, Souray -26, Ryder -25, Kovalev -19, Lats -20. Best Hab was Pleks at +10. And we have better goaltending and are supposedly playing in a defensive hockey mold.

a 6' 4" 215 lb fwd who is 23 with 116 career goals playing virtually alone in Columbus. 38 regular strength goals over the last two years. 20 pp goals. Our top reg strength scorer was Higgins with 15 this yr.

Quite the joke there.

Are you even close to catching on yet?

Nash would be great to have with Montreal. But we won't see him dealt. No matter which direction the new GM wants to go, Rick Nash is a player you keep.

Anyway, as others have suggested, I suspect that Zherdev is far more likely to be dealt. Overall, I don't know what that team's plan will be. DM spent lots of money every year on veterans who brought the team nowhere.

We'll see if there's a total housecleaning, a kind of summer garage sale full of veteran bargains, or whether the new GM will intead re-tool slowly and patiently with Hitchock's input.

A team doesn't rebuild by first discarding its young talent. Who would replace Nash in Columbus? Besides, if he were available in a trade, the bidding would be intense and the Habs would have to bleed themselves white to get him.

Yeah I don't see Nash getting moved. He is a major piece of that orginization. I can't say I have seen too many Bluejacket games over the past few years, but I can't imagine how he became an average or poor hockey play in a matter of two years. I think he is just a young player that is still finding his game and we will probably be seeing some big years out of Rick Nash in the future.

He would score 40 with Saku... He's the kind of player Saku never had.. He has some sweet scoring hands that you cant teach.. Of course, he's not as good in the new NHL. He's a perfect prototype of an old NHL powerforward.

Though, that sounds too much like 10 years ago... Saku can make any winger looks good. We don't need to find a winger for him, what he needs is another top-line center to give him some breathing air.

Okay so let's stop debating whether Nash is a joke or not, since noone will ever agree.

Let's debate what it might take to make a reasonable trade offer. My offer was 2 first round picks (one this year, and our '08) and a youngish winger (Perezhogin, or you could go younger to a prospect..), and possibly trade Tollefsen for Bouillon somewhere in there.

This is a fast, powerful, 23 year old Rocket Richard trophy winner. I doubt that would be even close enough to get him. Why would they rebuild by trading their very young franchise player? But if you want to put all that aside and just come up with a reasonable price if he was on the block, it would be more like...

1st round pick 2007
Andrei Kostitsyn
David Fischer

You have to give to get. It might even take more.

Frankly I don't see Mtl even getting a sniff at Nash. He remains the face of the franchise with Fedorov down the list.

Getting Nash or even Danny Fritsche from Columbus would be nice pickups. But the Jackets are not going to dump talent unless they get an idiot for a new GM. I suppose we can dream though

In any case calling Nash a joke is just plain ridiculous.
