Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jonathan Willis of The Cult Of Hockey,
It was only this evening that the most connected man in hockey, TSN’s Bob McKenzie said on national television that “Rick Nash, to our knowledge, is not available.” It struck me as a sane comment in what is generally an insane time.
So I’m very surprised to write that things appear to have changed.
Renaud Lavoie, a hockey reporter with RDS, tweeted the following tonight:
2 NHL sources told me that #bluejackets Rick Nash is on the market. Nash have a no-movement clause and will controle his destiny.
RDS doesn’t have quite the same reputation for accuracy as its sister channel, TSN, but Renaud Lavoie is a veteran reporter and a solid source. Additionally, in his French-language original article, Lavoie states that his original source for the story was a National Hockey League general manager….
The New York Daily News reports this evening that the Rangers and Blue Jackets have had personnel at each others games over the past month, including Columbus general manager Scott Howson, who attended the Rangers/Flyers match on Saturday night. They also spoke to Nash’s agent, Joe Resnick, who declined to comment on the rumour.
