Sather Willing to Blow the Farm on Nash?

We still have about a week left in the Rick Nash trade madness, and the latest report could scare Blueshirts fans everywhere.

According to Pierre LeBrun of, Glen Sather could be more willing to create a package of J.T. MillerChris Kreider and Tim Erixon, along with Brandon Dubinsky, rather than include either Michael Del Zotto or Ryan McDonagh.

Obviously you can only put so much stock in these rumors, but this is from a reliable source. The only saving grace is that the Jackets reportedly want a big-time player they could insert into the lineup immediately. 

Nash — or maybe anyone — isn’t worth that price. That would deplete the Rangers’ strong farm system big time, leaving little to be had for future trade possibilities. There’s no doubting Nash’s skill, but not for that price.
