The hammer finally falls as the Jackets deal the team's best player of all time - Rick Nash. Earlier I read this on Twitter on a break and began dreaming of the riches brought in for such a star. The Rangers must have given a lot for such a prime player!
Brandon Dubinsky, Tim Erixon, Artem Anisimov and a first-round pick. That's it.
You see a game-changer?
Anyone in that list going to make you go to Nationwide Arena and buy tickets?
The embarrassing ineptitude of this organization has grown to epic proportions. Keep in mind that the draft with the 3 first rounders they have doesn't happen for practically another year. Give a season or three for those guys to have a real effect. That's four more years of bad hockey. And the poor offense that Columbus fans had to endure last season has now been stripped of its best (okay, only) weapon.
Good luck with that, Howson.
