Report: Flyers Listening To Columbus Regarding A Deal For Rick Nash

Kyle - February 18, 2012

Rick Nash

We talked about the Flyers possibly acquiring Rick Nash on CB Radio and said that it was a long shot, but we also know there are many ways to win in the NHL.

With the Flyers sturggling on defense, giving up young pieces for Nash will make a lot of people scratch their head.

According to Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly, the Flyers are listening to Columbus, and they want some young guns.

As for the asking price for a player of  Nash’s caliber? Probably Sean Couturier and Brayden Schenn.
 
But … it may be something else. It may be James van Riemsdyk, another player, plus goalie Sergei Bobrovsky. Or a high draft pick besides a player.

 

The Blue Jackets have two scouts at today's game against the Penguins, and neither are there to watch the Penguins.

Rick Nash is a star, but giving up Schenn and Couturier certainly seems like a reactionary move. They have a ton of upside. Giving up on them now may be something they regret down the road.

With that said, if I'm going to give up two young players with that kind of talent, I want a player like Rick Nash in return. A line with Claude Giroux and Rick Nash sounds flat-out dangerous. Oh my.
