When the word broke that Rick Nash is in play, my immediate thought was the St. Louis Blues. Former Columbus Coach Ken Hitchcock is now the head Coach in St. Louis, and the Blues are starved for offense. My next thought of course was what would the deal look like?
Columbus GM Scott Howson has said the blueprint for a Nash deal would include a significant roster player, a top prospect, and a first round draft choice.
Taking that blueprint and applying it to St. Louis could look like this. Chris Stewart, Vladimir Tarasenko and the first round draft pick.
