Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson is looking to acquire a
couple of NHL-ready forwards in any deal for forward Rick Nash. Elite Andrew Luck Jersey . Speaking with TSNs
Gino Reda on Fridays edition of Thats Hockey, Howson talked about what it would
take for him to pull the trigger on a deal for his captain. “If we do complete a
trade, were trading out a 30 to 40 goal scorer,” said Howson. “Defence is
probably the strongest part of our team if we look at it today, so were looking
to get some NHL forwards back first and foremost.” Howson also indicated that he
will continue to be patient and is comfortable holding on to the nine-year NHL
veteran for as long as it takes. “We dont have a deadline,” said Howson. “Ricks
under contract and well continue to work at this…and well hope we get a
resolution to this.” Howson is comfortable with the price tag he has placed on
Nash and wont trade his star forward unless he gets fair offer back. “I have a
value that Ive placed on Rick and that our whole organization has placed on
Rick,” Howson said. “Hes an elite player, hes been a tremendous ambassador for
our franchise and our city and were very comfortable with the value weve placed
on him and until we get that value, were going to keep working away at it.”
Howson declined to comment on reports that the Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings,
New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and San Jose Sharks
were the teams Nash has rumoured to waive his no-trade clause for. He also shot
down speculation that he has recently been in talks with the Los Angeles Kings
for young goaltender Jonathan Bernier. “I dont know where that report comes
from,” Howson said. “We spoke to a number of teams about goaltenders at the
draft when we acquired Sergei Bobrovsky from Philadelphia, so I guess if theyre
talking about that then that would be accurate.” Nash is coming off his fifth
straight season of scoring 30 or more goals. The 28-year old from Brampton,
Ontario has tallied 289 goals and 547 points in nine NHL seasons.
