Rick Nash Trade Rumors: Could The Sharks Make A Move?

The Columbus Blue Jackets have had all number of different teams rumored to want to pick up Rick Nash from them including big names like the Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers, but it might be a different Californian team that will be looking the hardest into grabbing the Jackets superstar.

SB Nation Bay Area brings up the fact that the Sharks are in dire need of players who can score goals if the Sharks are going to get their playoff push together and finally win the Stanley Cup that has evaded them for all of these years. It could take a player like Nash to push that team back into the contention that they've been in the past while, so the Sharks will probably be one of the big names to keep your eyes on in the next couple of days.

If not Nash, perhaps Jeff Carter could be a name to keep an eyes on for the Sharks. Someone who can score goals is needed in the bay area, and fast.
