It’s happening! Well, hopefully. The first steps certainly are, as according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the New York Rangers have formally requested Rick Nash‘s no-trade list:
NYR have requested Rick Nash’s No-Trade list and Nash gave it to the club yesterday. The list is 18 teams Nash cannot be traded to (unless he were to waive his NTC). Conversely, NYR now have the green light to trade Nash to the 12 teams not on the list.

As McKenzie notes, the Rangers are in the clear to negotiate with at least a dozen teams, possibly more, though any clubs on his list would require his approval in order to allow for a deal to go through.
Buckle up! There’s just 22 days to go before the NHL’s trading deadline!
- I... don't understand.
Sure, some fans dont see Nash as the same guy, and GMS might not see him as a 40-goal scorer, either, but you cant discount everything else he can bring.
I said before, these guys are ideal trade deadline acquisitions.Seller's market this year. Both conferences are wide open, no clear-cut favorites. Negotiate effectively, and you could see some huge returns.Actually he's in the Grabner tweet mentions shitting on some douchebag from Calgary.
Fun strategic idea. Bruins interested in Grabs. Say we get their 1st and somehow Toronto's 1st. One of those teams is getting knocked out in the first round, end up with high pick. Obviously even better, trade with someone who might not make the playoffs. Heard Isles to be aggressive in trade mkt. Isles want Grabs? LA?I think the reality will be a lot less creative or fun. Nash is going to the central division or Anaheim for a 1st and a decent prospect. Dallas and Nashville will be bidding. St Louis would make sense but they do not have a 1st. Not sure how they compete.Of course if Staal complicates things too much, we won't let it scuttle the deal.
We can play Toronto off with Tampa.
McD, Nash (retain half), Holden or Staal (retain 2 mil) for Sergachev, Howden, Raddysh and their 1st
McD, Nash, Grabner, Holden (retaining half of everyone this year) for Point, Howden, Foote and their 1stMcD, Nash (retain half), Staal (we retain 2 mil per) and a 4th for Marner, Dermott and their 1st@NicholsOnHockey
McKenzie: As of this moment, three pieces seem to be the asking price for Rick Nash. "A first-round pick, a top prospect, and another lesser player or prospect or pick." #NYR
