Why would Rick Nash want to go to Toronto? I can see Boston,Philly,NYR, but the Leafs? Thats as screwed up as saying Hudler is a better all around player then Nash....Steve Nash maybe but Rick Nash and Hudler are not even close sorry to break it to you.
It's not THAT crazy that he'd want to go to Toronto, but it's unlikely. 1) Toronto is a borderline team, unlike Columbus. They are on the verge of improving. If he could be "the guy" that sparks that team and turns a legendary club into a playoff performer again, that's quite an incentive.
But still, it's way more likely he'd want to go to a team that has a 1) a good chance of winning a Cup or 2) has awesome night-life.
With his contract, remember, he's got to look long-term. He may want to win a Cup this year, but he knows that picking a team based on that criteria is like winning the lottery. So Toronto, being a team "on the rise" supposedly, wouldn't be all that unattractive.
But yeah....still unlikely. My bet is on LA. Hot night life, Hollywood, great weather year-round, and another team "on the rise."
