Bob McKenzie reports that Rick Nash will allow himself to be traded out of Columbus. He's 27 (soon to be 28), signed for 10 more years at a cap hit of $7.8 million and is mired in the middle of his worst season as a pro.
He's not a fit for the Blues, so let's just stop all that right here and now, but he's definitely going somewhere, either in the next couple weeks or this summer sometime.
Where does he go? When? What would you think would get traded back for him? Lucky for Nash to finally escape Columbus, but that team is about to to hit a long, flat bottom in terms of NHL respectability.
