Kukla's Korner Hockey

Each week, the NHL on TSN panel voices its opinions on the hot topics of the day in the Wednesday Night Hockey Quiz.
Question No. 2: Should Rick Nash request a trade out of Columbus both for his own sake and for the sake of the team?
(Aaron) Ward: Yes with an asterisk. Go through the season, endure it, take your time, make it look as if you’re processing it evaluating through the summer seeing where Columbus is going and what acquisitions they’ve made and then make that change. For the good of yourself and your team, Columbus should get a windfall of players and something back worthwhile and for him and the team they both need a fresh start.
(Marc) Crawford: No, I think Rick Nash is one of the top three or four power forwards in the game. If he played like he did in the Olympics, that would be what the Columbus Blue Jackets need. If they get that Rick Nash, why would they trade him? You look for those guys forever.
(Bob) McKenzie: A qualified yes. If the ownership in Columbus decides to clean house and get rid of general manager Scott Howson, they’ll be embarking on another direction. I don’t know if I were Rick Nash, I’d want to stick around for another direction because they’ll have their three year plan of how they want to do things. If they keep the general manager and Nash is part and parcel to that, I’d say stay and tough it out as best you can. If they go in a different direction, I’d say he should as well.
