The star forward and captain of the Columbus Blue Jackets is reportedly on the trading block despite having a no-movement clause in his contract, so Nash could be leaving Ohio before this year's NHL trade deadline. However, he would have to approve any move the Blue Jackets want to make for a deal to get done.
He's indicated (reportedly) that he would consider a trade to only a select few teams — and Boston appears to be one of them.
While Nash's eight-year, $62.4 million contract might be a bit difficult for some to swallow, there's no denying the five-time All-Star's ability. The former No. 1 overall pick has averaged over 30 goals per season since breaking into the league in 2002, and there's sure to be plenty of fans salivating to see what Nash would be capable of playing alongside some better teammates than the ones he's saddled with in Columbus.
There's no shortage of suitors vying for the right winger, but whether he agrees to pull the trigger on any blockbuster deal remains to be seen.
