NHL Trade and Free Agent Rumors – June 15, 2012.

Posted on by Spector in News, Rumors | Leave a comment
The latest on Rick Nash, Ryan Suter, Dustin Penner, TJ Oshie, Petr Sykora and more.

Nash trade talks heating up.

COLUMBUS DISPATCH: Aaron Portzline reports sources claim “as many as seven teams” have had significant talks with Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson regarding winger Rick Nash, while “three or four” other clubs have “kicked the tires” regarding the cost of a trade. Most of the teams interested in Nash are believed to be those who expressed interest prior to this year’s trade deadline. Portzline believes the NY Rangers appear the most likely fit, while San Jose, Philadelphia, Toronto, and Carolina apparently have “considerable interest” in Nash, though the Blue Jackets asking price is believed to be high, perhaps too high according to some GMs.  Their asking price could include “help at Nash’s position at forward”, and doesn’t preclude a defenseman. It’s also believed the Blue Jackets, who interviewed St. Louis Blue president John Davidson for a front office job, won’t be holding up their plans for Nash, the draft or free agency awaiting Davidson’s decision.

PUCK DADDY: Harrison Mooney cited a recent radio report by former Minnesota North Stars GM Lou Nanne, who believes no one will out-bid the Wild for Parise’s services.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: For those of you already growing weary of hearing Parise’s name linked to half the league in free agent rumors: get used to it. Unless he re-signs with the Devils prior to July 1, Parise will probably be a daily fixture in the rumor mill.

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS: Kristie Ackert believes if Parise is serious about not signing with the Rangers, they’ll turn their focus toward the trade market, perhaps by targeting Columbus Blue Jackets winger Rick Nash.
