CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty suggests the Columbus Blue Jackets' asking price for Nash may simply be too high.

"... Most expected that the Blue Jackets would be looking for Tuukka Rask in any Nash exchange given Columbus' dreadful performance between the pipes, but indications to CSNNE.com from several places are that the Blue Jackets are looking for either Milan Lucic or Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton as their desired price tag. Seguin is an untouchable for the Bruins coming off a sophomore NHL season where he blossomed into an All-Star performer, but Lucic appears to have his name coming up more and more often in trade discussions ..."

Instead, Haggerty proposes a Jackets/Bruins deal could happen if Columbus GM Scott Howson is willing to accept a package including forward David Krejci and picks/prospects in return. In reality, the San Jose Sharks, Toronto Maple Leafs etc. should be able to outbid that offer.
