Nash Says He Is Having Fun And A Blue Jacket Right Now

via Christopher Botta of Slap Shot,

...Rick Nash took center stage before the Columbus Blue Jackets played the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Nash was asked about the swirling trade rumors, the possibility of playing for the Rangers and whether the distractions have affected his game. Here is Nash’s briefing in its entirety:

Hello Folks,
  I like Nash, don’t mind if Rangers take him but don’t want my Leafs to take him. Why? I have read in numerous articles the cost for Nash would be 4 players including 1 roster player, 1 prospect, 1 first round pick and perhaps a goaltender. I think the Leafs have the parts to do the trade, but think other teams could offer more. I do not want to see the Leafs send any of the following for Nash:

Gardiner,  Colborne, Kadri, Frattin, Aulie, McKegg, Biggs, Percy, Scrivens, Rynnas, Gustavsson, Reimer, Kessel, Lupul, Franson, Phaneuf, (well all of Leaf roster except
maybe Grabovski )

I think trading for Nash is too high of a cost and will waste time for the Leafs in the rebuilding process. Leafs are a bubble team perhaps on the verge of making the playoffs for the first time in 6 years. I think Leafs need to stand pat and just develop what they have.

See you
