According to Darren Dreger, joining the Rangers, Flyers and Sharks on Rick Nash’s trade list, are the Detroit Red Wings, Pittsburgh Penguins and possibly the Carolina Hurricanes.
Dreger thinks that Howson will be able to hit a “home run” with one of the teams in that group.
Pittsburgh, Detroit and Carolina all want after either Ryan Suter, Zach Parise or both.
Adam Rotter: This is where it gets interesting. Pittsburgh was all in on getting Parise and Nash would be in a great, no pressure, position to be the third guy on the Penguins. Detroit seems to want to make a big move but they need a defenseman to help transition to the post Nick Lidstrom era. Carolina is the team to worry about if you want Nash. They seem willing to do everything they can to make themselves into a contender and if Nash is willing to accept a move, I think he ends up in Carolina.
