The Rick Nash trade-watch has been going on for about a week now, and tonight he goes head-to-head with the Rangers, a team linked to trying to acquire the 26-year-old winger.
Here’s Nash’s presser, courtesy of Chris Botta, about two hours before the puck drops at Madison Square Garden.
He’s saying all the right things. Nash obviously isn’t going to come out and say he wants to leave Columbus or wants to join the Rangers or anything else. I’m still not sold that the Rangers will or should acquire Nash, but if they do, I’m pretty confident he’d adapt to a market like New York just fine.
