Update: 12:23PM: Kypreos says that San Jose is only kicking the tires on Nash and that the only real suitors for Nash are the Rangers and the Maple Leafs.
Nick Kypreos says that if people think that Logan Couture is going to go to Columbus in a Rick Nash deal, “you are high”
MacLean says that Columbus needs to get back a young player who can be a star. He says that based on his experience as a GM, he doesn’t think that a deal will get done by the deadline and that if a deal happens, it will be a bad deal for one of the sides.
On why Glen Sather would make this trade, Kypreos says that the Rangers are close and Nash could be a difference maker on the wall and would help the PP.
MacLean says that the Nashville Predators reportedly have made a big offer for Rick Nash to try and go for it all this season.
Original Post: On the Fan 590 in Toronto, Nick Kypreos says that the Rangers have made their offer to Columbus for Rick Nash.
Doug MacLean, former Columbus GM, says that he doesn’t think that Nash will be moved but that if he were Brian Burke he would trade anyone on the Leafs for him.
MacLean thinks that Burke is “banging it out” to make this Rick Nash deal. He also says that if it were to be a 1 for 1 deal, Burke would trade Phil Kessel for Nash.
