NHL Trade Rumors: Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets Discussing Rick Nash Trade
According to Panaccio, Columbus general manager Scott Howson is seeking forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier, which the Flyers might see as a non-starter or one of them with several other players. The Blue Jackets are likely to hold firm until Zach Parise signs. However, if they don’t get an offer they like after the Parise signing, then they might finally lower their asking price.
Nash carries a $7.8 million cap hit over the next six years. The Blue Jackets captain had 30 goals and 29 assists in 2011-12.
