Should the Columbus Blue Jackets Trade Rick Nash?
It may be time for the Columbus Blue Jackets to move their most precious asset. It may be time for the team to do the unthinkable. It may be time for the Jackets to trade Rick Nash.
Columbus has tried everything to ice a competitive hockey team in the NHL. And nothing has worked. They failed to build an outstanding hockey team through the draft, and their attempt to Frankenstein a team together during the offseason isn’t working.
Calling this idea a knee-jerk reaction to a season that isn’t even 10 games old yet is short-sighted. Columbus hasn’t had a poor hockey team for one season. They’ve had a poor hockey team for all but one season.
And Rick Nash has been the only constant—right there at the center of it all.
