[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Vegas: Bruins are 2nd most likely spot for Nash : I highly suspect Hamilton would be included in any deal for Nash, especially considering P.C. is trying his best to avoid trading Tuukka. But lets imagine this: The New York Rangers add Rick Nash. Do you honestly feel that the Bruins could beat a NYR team that is so loaded on offense and super strong in goaltending and set for years into the future? How about the Pens when Crosby gets back? I dunno, I Just think the Bruins are lacking some firepower right now.. Since the Vancouver game, we don't resemble that team with remarkable depth that went into the post-season last year. Adding Rick Nash for Tukkaa would essentially subtract nothing from our core, set Seguin up with a line-mate for his future, give the bruins an elite goal-scorer, and position them as the front runner for another cup this season. very very interesting trade deadline.

To me Nash is a top 5 player in the league, rate them how you want, say I'm wrong, been a favorite of mine for along time and I've endured many Blue Jackets games just to watch him. He gets a break away, it's in the net, the fact that he plays on that team and still gets break aways is a feat in itself. Teams focus on him so much. He has size, tons of speed, thats a very underrated part of his game, a killer shot and he absolutley snipes. He'd be scary good with any talent around him.
He's under contract until 2017 so he would not be a rental, I don't see the Rangers getting him because thaty'd have to trade alot more than Dubinsky and a pick to fit him in under the cap. I don't see them doing a major shake-up to team thats already that good.
I don't see the Bruins getting him for the shake up reason but they'd have alot more wiggle room than the Rangers. I t would have to be a multi player deal with Rask going one way and Mason coming back. Probably cost you Krejci or Marchand as well. I just don't see the B's parting ways with Hamilton, though you have to give up something to get a player of Nash's talents.
I said it before in another thread, I'd keep an eye on the Capitals. They could easily ship Nuevirth or Holtby (He got a start the other night, hmmmm) along with a package that includes Semin, Perreault maybe even switch one out with Carlson. They could bury Knuble in the minors or include him in the deal. Perhaps ship Knuble to San Jose. Speaking of San Jose, I'd throw them in the mix as well, they have 2 goalies in the system (Stalock & Sateri) could package Demers along with Marleau. Columbus is going to want an NHL player or 2 and some prospects. San Jose and Washington fit the bill with Washington getting the edge.
