Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Scott Howson is looking to acquire a couple of NHL-ready forwards in any deal for forward Rick Nash.
Speaking with TSN’s Gino Reda on Friday’s edition of That’s Hockey, Howson talked about what it would take for him to pull the trigger on a deal for his captain.
“If we do complete a trade, we’re trading out a 30 to 40 goal scorer,” said Howson. “Defence is probably the strongest part of our team if we look at it today, so we’re looking to get some NHL forwards back first and foremost.”
Howson also indicated that he will continue to be patient and is comfortable holding on to the nine-year NHL veteran for as long as it takes.
“We don’t have a deadline,” said Howson. “Rick’s under contract and we’ll continue to work at this…and we’ll hope we get a resolution to this.”
