7.8 cap hit for rick nash + losing jarnkrok,smith,filppula and a 1st .... NO THANKSSSSS

Yeah, he's grossly overpaid for his production. It's pretty comical that Crosby only gets paid 900k more than a guy who hasn't potted 80pts even once in is NHL career. :lol:

You don't think the team he plays for has something to do with that.

I'd love Rick Nash, but definitely not for what Columbus would want.

Then again Howson has made horrible deals in the past, so who knows.

i wonder if this isnt just a ploy by Holland to send a message to free agents that Detroit is going to do what it takes to improve our team. hinda like pitt did with the Crosby signing.

Howson thinks he's trading Gretzky with what he's been asking for evidently. If he were to trade Nash to the Wings, that price would go up to the equivalent of some weird Gretzky/Howe/Orr love child. No thanks...

agreed ,rick nash has NEVER had anyone to play with and he popped in a ton of goals for such an awful team, theres no doubt in my mind if he went to detroit or somewhere like ottawa to play with spezza and karlsson he can get 40-50 goals .... hes been in an awful position for such a long time

that being said i dont wanna give up all those assets for one single player

no way he comes here. Holland doesn't blow anyone out of the water. He's my favorite non Red Wing but being in the same division just would be too much for Howson to accept and trade the face of their franchise to a division rival.

Nope. Sorry. If you want to get big boy money you should have to have big boy production. Look at the numbers Crosby, Ovechkin, Heatly, Hossa and Kovy put up on worse teams than the BJs in their past.

The year Nash produces like a top 10 forward is the year he deserves to be paid like one (so yes, that one year he was a coleader in goals scored he would have earned this contract but now he's getting paid Crosby money to produce like Franzen).

Too bad realignment couldn't have helped out with that.

Its good to see Holland being aggressive though. Asking about Nash leads me to believe he's looking to shake things up or make some serious upgrades to this team. Bringing in Nash, to me, would be like when we brought in Brendan Shanahan. He was a great goal scorer, in his prime and desperately wanted to play for a contender. I like to think it would have a similar effect on this team.

I have to wonder if Holland is very serious about Nash or if he's just letting it be known to other big free agents on the market he's shopping around and not just zeroing in on Parise, Semin, etc.

those players put up better numbers and they were on worse teams than columbus???how the hell was pittsburgh,washington,san jose etc... worse than columbus?? columbus is a laughing stock , and who the hell did rick nash ever have to play with???? all those players you mentioned above ALL had someone to play with

rick nash has been a lone ranger in columbus his whole career

Nash is a question to me. yes he is big young and scores goals. But there have been more than one person question his will to use his size and he seems to think D is optional most nights. Maybe it is a product of being on a bad team. Or maybe that is who he really is.

Do I think we can get him? Nope. Being in the same division we would have to pay the most. We simply don't have the parts to move for this big of a deal.

Don't forget that Heatley, Hossa, and Kovalchuk all played for Atlanta.

Pittsburgh put up 58 pts in Crosby's rookie year. The same year, Washington put up 70 (good for 2nd last in the conference) with Ovi.

heatley and kovalchuk had eachother at least and slava kozlov was still not bad when he went there , marc savard was starting out ....hossa started off in ottawa so he had good players , hossa in atl then had kovalchuk and kozlov

Who did rick nash ever have???? huselius? umberger??zherdev?

i dont know whats with the hate towards rick nash its quite clear he has never had any good players to play with let alone players, im not saying i want nash in detroit the price would be way too high but i do think if he goes to the rangers or flyers, sj he will pop 40-50 easy
