A superstar that wants to play in Ohio? Trade him!

February 15, 2012

The Columbus Blue Jackets are in the midst of their worst ever season after spending all of their cap money to bolster the attack. Team captain Rick Nash reportedly has been asked to waive his no trade clause and accept a move elsewhere. Nash has been a patient man as the front office has promised him for years to build around him. At this point he looks to be the scapegoat for poor trades and drafting. Nash has been one of the few bright spots for the Jackets.

General Manager Scott Howson would be fired in most pro sports cities. His record is abysmal and his team building has been random patchwork. Only in Columbus would he be given carte blanche to rebuild something he couldn’t build in the first place. If Nash has to be traded, this man should not be the one doing it. This cycle of team building has been a failure and so has Howson.

I’m not sure how this turns out but Nash deserves better than having his loyalty and contract signing of 8 years being thrown out after 2. The Columbus hockey squad will wait a long time for a player of his caliber than wants to play here.
