Scott Howson, the general manager of the Columbus Blue Jackets, is a very popular man these days with team captain Rick Nash on the trade block.
Howson reportedly carved some time out of his day for an impromptu discussion with Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke in New York City on Sunday, according to Sportsnet. Could they have been discussing a new home for Nash?
"Burke was in New York for an HBO taping," the report states, "when he ran into Howson and the two managers decided to talk over breakfast."
Sportsnet's Jeff Marek tweeted that the two GMs were indeed discussing a deal for Rick Nash, an interesting possibility since the Maple Leafs are one of the few teams Nash has indicated he would waive his no-movement clause for.
