- Rangers Deal Rick Nash to Boston Bruins - 02/25/2018
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!
