Updates on Rick Nash, Roberto Luongo, Zach Parise, Ryan Sutter, Shane Doan,and more.

Will the Rangers pay big for Nash?

NEW YORK POST:  Larry Brooks reports the Rangers are still targeting Columbus Blue Jackets winger Rick Nash, but the question – as it was prior to this year’s trade deadline – is the Blue Jackets asking price. Back then, the Jackets sought “Chris Kreider; Derek Stepan or Carl Hagelin; Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto; plus Brandon Dubinsky and a first-rounder”, which the Rangers rejected. Brooks believes “Philadelphia, San Jose, Carolina, perhaps Toronto and perhaps Boston — are in the race” for Nash. He adds the Rangers won’t part with Kreider, McDonagh or Stepan, and feels Dubinsky could go the other way, along with perhaps Hagelin or Artem Anisimov and Del Zotto, though it remains to be seen if Rangers management would part with them.

NBC SPORTS PRO HOCKEY TALK: Joe Yerdon cited Newsday’s Arthur Staple and Andy Strickland of 590 The Fan in St. Louis regarding the steep asking price by the Columbus Blue Jackets for winger Rick Nash. “Staple reports Columbus GM Scott Howson is looking for a package of 4 or 5 major pieces in return for Nash while Strickland says a package of two quality roster players and two prospects would be the price”, writes Yerdon.

Iginla & Kipper Staying Put

Posted on by admin in News, Rumors | Leave a comment

George Johnson of the Calgary Herald,

And if Hartley’s philosophical reputation holds true, that ticking time bomb doesn’t even have a fuse now. Which, reading between the lines, only strengthens the assumption that Iginla will be staying.

As well, old linemate and pal Marty Gelinas has been brought aboard as an assistant coach, to act as a bridge between the War Room and the dressing room. Iginla’s room.

“It’s great to have Geli back,’’ he gushed on the Flames’ official twitter account Friday. “Nobody worked harder both on and off the ice. He’ll be a great mentor for all our players, not just the young guys but the vets, as well.” Read more

Nash to be Moved by Friday

Posted on by admin in Rumors | Leave a comment

Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch,

By all appearances, the Jackets are standing pat. They are comfortable and confident that President Mike Priest, Howson, senior adviser Craig Patrick and Tyler Wright, the rookie co-director of amateur scouting, will seize their draft opportunities, unearth a capable goaltender, extract a windfall in a Nash trade and “refresh” rather than rebuild the roster. Given their recent track record, the confidence is not justifiable. Read more
