Here comes a rumor which is sure to get even the most borderline Flyers fan slightly confused. From ESPN's Daily Debate (Side Note- Pretty sure ESPN only has two hockey writers).
The Rangers, Kings and Philadelphia Flyers would make sense to me, although the math would be really tight in New York given the money already tied up in Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik and Henrik Lundqvist. But no doubt Nash represents just what the Blueshirts need. And there are always ways to get creative cap-wise. The Rangers have some young pieces (led by Chris Kreider) that might entice the Jackets. Howson, after all, took in the Rangers-Flyers game over the weekend.
Which brings me to the Flyers, whom I believe also have interest in Nash and certainly have the young pieces to get involved (Brayden Schenn, James Van Riemsdyk or Sean Couturier, etc). Can you imagine Rick Nash on a line with Claude Giroux?
Mass confusion that this move is being talked about or is even close to happening. But wait, there's more. Kevin Paul Dupont from The Boston Globe reports that there could be a three way trade between Toronto, Philly, and Columbus. As long as we don't receive Jeff Carter or any other forward that's ever existed, I might be alright with this deal. And yes, I am willing to give up BraySchenn, Cooter, Reader, or Reimer , despite the nicknames we have found for them.
