The New York Rangers are prepared to enter a rebuild mode and have approached veteran forward Rick Nash to provide a list of teams that he would want to be traded to.
One of those 12 teams, which are mostly Canadian based playoff contending teams, is the Toronto Maple Leads, according to TSN’s Frank Seravalli.
I included the teams that I think have the best chance of winning the Stanley Cup and are also places I think would be good for my family,” Nash said, according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post. “And, yes, that does include teams in Canada. I’m not excluding that as a possibility.”
Teams such as the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators are considered other contending teams for Nash, who has scored 17 goals and 10 assists through 56 games this season.
Nash, 33, is a pending unrestrcited free agent and would be a big boost for a playoff contending team down the stretch.
