That's a great deal for the Rangers. They couldn't score goals in the playoffs and obviously adding Nash will be a huge boost.

Plus they didn't lose Stepan, Kreider or Del Zotto in the trade either. Dubinsky is coming off a terrible season too.

Those are two major pieces and a first, but I seriously thought it would be more. Wings simply would've been overcharged and could not do it

Not that Columbus would have ever traded him to the Red Wings, but that asking price is nothing really. Howson got destroyed again.

The Rangers are the best team in the NHL as of right now.

rags are now best team in the league imo. they have it all: goaltending, offence, d. so strong everywhere.

dubinsky is a s***ty version of callahan - expendable. they have 3 first lines now.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I think Columbus got the better of the deal personally.

The best part is that now people will have to stop making excuses for Nash when he still manages to put up less than 80 pts a season.

Kuklas' Korner Red Wings blogger George Malik provides some valuable insight to Wings fans. For the most part, I think everyone here seems to get the point. But I'm waiting for someone to see the trade return, and get pissed because Kenny "sat on his ass/hands" and/or "didn't offer enough"...

Remember, Red Wings fans, it wasn't that the Wings didn't make a comparable/better offer. Columbus said "no" to trading Nash to DET.


It wasn't that Kenny Holland didn't make a fine offer. It was that Columbus turned down trading its superstar to their "archrival."


And Kenny even confirms it, via Helene St. James...

Red Wings GM Ken Holland: "I talked to Scott Howson a number of times, we did make an offer for Rick Nash."

Ya we know... Howson would rather tank his team than play rick nash 6 times a season on a depleted wings lineup. what a dumbass.

Wow.....had Detroit been in the East with a realignment we'd have him for a ton less that what we had to offer up to even get the attention of Howson this year.

Oh man, NYR really got a good deal. Good for them. If I'm a Jackets fan though, trading Nash for these players is 100 times worse than trading him to Detroit. I'd be pissed.

They have a great 1st line, but after that I think their quality drops off significantly at least at forward, their D-corps is very strong as is their goalie though. I think their offense is tied to how well Nash performs there.

Nash - Richards - Gaborik
Hagelin - Boyle - Callahan
Pyatt - Kreider - Rupp
Haley - Stepan - Asham
Halpern

Staal - Girardi
McDonagh - Sauer
Bickel - Del Zotto

Lundqvist
Biron

Wouldn't have mattered. The proposed realignment still had Detroit in the same conference as the Jackets.

Bobby, on the other hand, is a possibility. If he moves somewhere other than here, I'll start getting irritated.

Gaborik - Richards - Nash
Kreider - Stepan - Callahan
Hagelin - Boyle - Rupp
Pyatt - Halpern - Asham
Haley

First 2 lines are pretty solid if Kreider is what we think he is. Also JT Miller could come up this season possibly.

That is a relief!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Good point, forgot about that among the multiple scenarios that were tossed around.

Does it really matter for Columbus seeing Nash six times per year if they could have gotten a better offer? It's not like they would be directly competing with the Red Wings anytime soon.

I guess I just don't understand the logic. The Red Wings could have easily matched or bettered this deal with the Rangers. Then again, this is why Columbus has never won a playoff game.
