Trade deadline season is heating up. Bob McKenzie and Larry Brooks are reporting that the Rangers have asked Rick Nash for his 18 team no trade list, leaving 13 teams he can be traded to. Brooks also mentioned that all Canadian teams are likely to be on his list, so we can rule out any Winnipeg or Toronto rumors.

I can see Nash as a good fit in Nashville, if just for the puns. Nash will get a good amount at the deadline, especially since the Rangers are more than likely to retain 50% of his $7.8 million salary. Nash will likely be the first domino to fall for the Rangers, especially if they are already asking for his list. Nash is just waiting to know, at this point.
