According to Bruce Garrioch in the Ottawa Sun, via KK, the price that Scott Howson is asking for Rick Nash right now is non-negotiable and the same for every team involved.
Garrioch says that the price is a first round pick in 2012, a “good player” off the roster and the teams number one prospect in the organization.
Garrioch says that in the case of San Jose, the “good player” would be someone like Logan Couture or Joe Pavelski.

What was Howson’s “Non-negotiatble” demand last summer? “Unless you take Voracek and 8th overall pick, I’m not taking Carter’s $58M?”
