NHL Trade Rumors: PODCAST "THP Presents" | Rick Nash Deal [VERY LIKELY], 6 Teams [INTR] | Ennis/Risto, Fowler, Ducks/Sabres/NJ | More
Podcast TheHockeyPress Presents:
• The Hockey Press: After the New York Rangers signed Brandon Pirri & Jimmy Vesey, there has been speculation/rumors that they could be preparing for a Rick Nash or Chris Kreider trade.
While Kreider is valued a bit more than Nash, it doesn't seem like Kreider will move. Rangers REALLY like him, and don't want to part with him. Plus, Vesey is good friends w/Kreider, and that could have been one of the advantages for Jimmy to sign w/Rangers.
Rick Nash on the other hand has been the subject of trade rumors for the Rangers. He's been reported to be offered to the Blues for Shattenkirk, Ducks for Fowler, and Sabres for Ristolainen. All these trades were possible, but the thing that kept them just rumors was the Rangers unwillingness to retain. Could that change now?
Our sources have told us while NYR are planning ahead, they don't have a trade finalized, they are talking to a few teams, and names are popping up. The St. Louis Blues will ALWAYS be rumored in the Nash sweepstakes, but they have NOT been in contact w/Rangers recently. THP can confirm however, the Anaheim Ducks have discussed a POSSIBLE Cam Fowler/Hampus Lindholm for Rick Nash deal in the past week. After the Vesey signing the New Jersey Devils also called on Nash. Habs/Senators are also believed to be interested in Nash. Haven't heard anything on a conversation between them and New York.
So now here is what you NEED to know on Nash summarized [NEW]:
- Ducks, Devils, and Sabres have ALL talked w/Rangers regarding Rick Nash in the past week.
- Senators/Habs/Blues are interested. They should be in contact soon.
- The Pirri/Vesey signing were the NYR planning ahead.
- A trade IS NOT IMMINENT right now, but yes the Rangers are working around the clock to move Nash BEFORE the NHL season.
- Don't be surprised if a few more team contact the Rangers in the next few days.
THP: Keep an eye on the New York Islanders. They could have something brewing. Halak possibly?
NHL Trade Rumors On the: Tyler Ennis NOT Moving?!, Gryba [PTO]...
• Edmonton Journal: Jim Matheson writes Tyler Ennis was the subject of trade rumors a few months back. The Buffalo Sabres were believed to be dangling Ennis in exchange for a Defenseman.
With Jimmy Vesey signing w/New York Rangers, it's more likely at least fir the time being Ennis stays w/Sabres.
• 3 Teams are interested in Eric Gryba. It's believed they all have sent him PTO's. While the Oilers still haven't offered any sort of contract to Gryba
