Rick Nash Trade "Has Flyers Written All Over It"

That was the quote from CBC's Elliote Freidman in his report that Columbus Blue Jackets All Star Rick Nash could be among the players on the move when the NHL's trade deadline comes at the end of the month.

"Teams you could see Nash wanting to play for - the NY Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Philadelphia Flyers. There are a lot of teams who think this has the Flyers written all over it. They've got a young goalie."

The "young goalie" he mentions would be Sergei Bobrovsky, who he guesses could be part of a package that would entice the Blue Jackets, who could use the help in net.

Surely that wouldn't be enough, but you would think that the Flyers wouldn't have much trouble giving up Bobs as part of a trade. For better or worse, they're committed to Ilya Bryzgalov for the long term, so Bob is more or less stuck as a backup for the foreseeable future.
