Senators Interested In Nash

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

The Senators have apparently made a strong pitch for Rick Nash.

Multiple solid sources have confirmed rumblings of Ottawa’s interest, saying GM Bryan Murray has indeed talked with the Columbus Blue Jackets about acquiring the two-time 40-goal scorer.

One insider went a step further by telling Sun Media the players the Senators proposed to send back in the deal for the left winger, a scenario confirmed by another source.

For the just-turned 28-year-old Nash, it appears the Senators are prepared to trade 2011 first-round pick Mika Zibanejad, winger Nick Foligno and goalie Ben Bishop.

If this is indeed true that seems like a quality deal for both teams. Nash needs star players to be able to reach full potential though and I’m not so sure the sens can provide what he needs to be successful

Given what the asking price was for Nash leading up to the trade deadline, I’d say that’ a fair deal for both sides. Zibanejad is 3rd on the depth chart unless he switches to wing and Bishop is expendable with Lehner (maybe) ready for a backup role.

Yeah, based on what I was told just after the trade deadline, that looks like a little bit less than the Blue Jackets were asking for previously.  That said, Nash had a pretty small amount of teams that he was willing to go to, so I doubt anything comes of this.
