As we wait to see where Nash will end up, or if Howson will actually deal him (he’s under no obligation to trade the franchise’s all-time leading scorer), let’s analyze the six possible destinations and how Nash would fit in. Of course, we’re going to do this without any knowledge of who would be leaving town in a trade for Nash, but we’ll take a look at some possibilities anyway:
NEW YORK RANGERS
Who could go: The Rangers would likely want to include Brandon Dubinsky and his $4.5 million cap hit in the deal, but Howson clearly will need a lot more than a guy who had just 34 points last season, down from the 54 he had in 2010-11. Other names that could be in the mix include Michael Del Zotto, Carl Hagelin, Tim Erixon, Christian Thomas, and Ohio native J.T. Miller.
DETROIT RED WINGS
Who could go: For a Nash-to-Detroit trade to happen, you’d have to think that the Red Wings might have to give up more than the other teams involved because Columbus would have to see Nash at least six times a season. It’s hard to fathom how much that would be, but Darren Helm might have to be part of the package that returns to Columbus. The Wings just signed Helm to a four-year contract.
