BUZZ: The BIG Asking Price For Rick Nash May Include Michael Del Zotto

On TSN 990 in Montreal, Darren Dreger said that the Columbus Blue Jackets may ask for Michael Del Zotto as part of a package for Rick Nash.

Dreger says “if the New York Rangers aren’t the front runner in this, they are right up at the top.” He adds the asking price is four pieces and right now for the Rangers that is “too rich.”

Dreger’s guess at what players Columbus would want from the Rangers are a combination of Michael Del Zotto, though Dreger thinks that he is untouchable, Brandon Dubinsky, maybe Artem Anisimov and then prospects like Chris Kreider and Tim Erixon.

He says that he doesn’t think that the Rangers, or anyone, will trade for Nash unless the price comes down.

It was reported last season that Columbus had inquired about Del Zotto.
