Rick Nash's agent has broken his silence

With the NHL trade deadline less than 48 hours away, Rick Nash’s agent has broken his silence on his client’s trade situation.

“We’re hopeful a deal can get done prior to the trade deadline that is fair and equitable for the Blue Jackets,” Joe Resnick told TSN. “However, if a deal is not reached, then the list of acceptable teams will not change at a later date.”

Nash, the highly sought after gem heading into Monday’s trade deadline, has a no-movement clause in his contract. He helped any potential deal proceed by giving the Blue Jackets a list of teams he’d be willing to look at.
