The rumors continue to swirl regarding the Columbus Blue Jackets and their captain, Rick Nash. All indications are that the woeful Columbus performance this season has led to the team shopping their star player in order to rebuild for the future.
The latest bit of information regarding these rumors comes from Jimmy Murphy at ESPN Boston. Murphy reported on Sunday that the Jackets had been in talks with the Boston Bruins regarding a potential trade, but their asking price may have been too rich for the Bruins to entertain. Columbus through that Nash might be able to fetch them goaltender Tuukka Rask.
Rask is a 24-year-old Finnish player who has been in the Bruins system since 2007. He currently serves as the backup for starter Tim Thomas, but it is clear that the Bruins have big future plans for Rask, or at the very least feel they can get more than Nash in exchange for the goalie.
