Rangers Acquire Rick Nash

There are reports coming from around the league that the dreaded Rick Nash saga has finally come to an end. The high scoring forward was traded to the New York Rangers for center Brandon Dubinsky, defender Tim Erixon, center Artem Anisimov and a 1st round pick. The trade NOT OFFICIAL has just been completed.
Nash will leave Columbus as its all time leader in games played (674), goals (289), assists (258), points (547), power play goals (83), power play points (182), game-winning goals (44), shorthanded goals (14), hat tricks (5), shots on goal (2,278), multi-goal games (46), and multi-point games (136).
The trade marks the end of an era in Columbus who were already in the midst of an albeit extended rebuilding phase. The Rangers meanwhile, aside from becoming true cup contenders, should be accused of robbery as they not only opened up more (about 250,000) cap space but traded for one of the League’s best players for close to nothing. The doesn’t necessarily mean that Dubinsky, Anisimov and Erixon won’t surprise us.
Final Deal:
Rangers Acquire: Rick Nash, Steven Delisle, Conditional 3rd round pick (returned to Columbus if Rangers make Stanley Cup Final)
Columbus Acquires: Tim Erixon, Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, 1st round pick
