Happy Valentine's Day! May it be a special day with your special someone, or a day you quietly sneak through before grabbing a bunch of discounted chocolate tomorrow, depending on your preference.
A long whispered rumor is out: Rick Nash could be moved. But then again, we've been hearing that the team was willing to listen about Nash deals since the wheels spun off earlier this year. Is it really going to happen? Stay tuned.
Rick Nash is the kind of player that can make any team better. But it's also fair to consider that as much as he likes Columbus, this relationship hasn't been working as well as either side had hoped. If rebuilding the team to support him did not succeed, perhaps it's time to pursue other options, especially if the return is great enough to outweigh the pain of losing the perennial all-star.
