After trading for Nash, i thought they would have been close to Capping out, but they still have over 13 mill in room left with a 20 man roster. Hard to believe. :blink:

I don't think Nash will be too upset, but i can see Brandon a little peeved being traded to a team with little chance of playoffs. He's still making his 4+mill over there,,, so he can't cry too hard.

I wouldn't mind if the Habs could pry him out of Columbus.

I think Columbus did well in this deal, the only problem is the first rounder is a very low pick.

Nash is 28 (an old 28) allegedly entering his prime and will be playing with a Top 5 center in Brad Richards, I think we can chalk him up for 35-45 goals and 35 assists assuming 75 games played. Solid first line/All-star production, who knows what he's got in the playoffs though and the offensive depth on the Rangers isn't very good. Also, Nash and Gaborik both shoot left and like to play on the off-wing, so one of them is either playing the off-wing or OFF Richards line. So, either Stephan or Callahan is going to have to set the table at an All-star level to make the duo's impact worth it. I don't think it will happen, either they create a monster line with a thin offensive behind them or they dilute their top end production. I feel like the Rangers lost the identity that made them successful last year: Depth, toughness, tight checking and timely scoring from a wide variety of players.

Columbus gets a young, future captain type player that plays in all situations and is tough as nails and will get 40-50 points a season on average in Dubinsky.

Young, big talented top 6 player in the making in Anisimov.

Young, big, solid stay at home top 4 potential 21 year old defenceman Tim Erixon to potentially play with Johnson, Wisniewski or Murray in the future.

Low first round pick. Likely leads to another solid yet unspectacular player.

So, in summary the Blue Jackets, an awful organization and team for many years with one star player, have traded him for 3-4 long term pieces on a developping team. The Rangers have traded depth for star power, again.

IMO, 3 years from now unless the Rangers win a cup and only a cup, this deal will be slanted towards the Blue Jackets as they return to the playoffs by 2015.

How much depth do they think they have? A bit one-sided.

A good indicator of the kind of deal we should be trying to get done with P.K., IMO.

With the new accelerated compliance buyout in mind, the New York Rangers placed defenceman Wade Redden on unconditional waivers on Wednesday for the purpose of buying him out. Redden has played the last two seasons with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL but according to his agent Don Meehan, he would prefer to be playing in the NHL.
