New York Rangers: Is Rick Nash Really Worth It?

The New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets tried to get a deal done that would send the Jackets' captain, Rick Nash, to the Big Apple before the trade deadline. Those talks collapsed and so did the Rangers' Stanley Cup quest.

That all changed Monday when the Jackets and Rangers completed a blockbuster deal. The Jackets sent Rick Nash, Steven Delisle and a conditional 2013 third-round pick to New York for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a 2013 first-round pick.

If the Rangers make it to the Stanley Cup finals, the Jackets will retain the third-round pick. The deal is also dependent on all players passing physicals on Wednesday.

Nash, a two-time 40-goal scorer, has never won a playoff game in four career games. That was in 2009 when the Blue Jackets were swept by the Red Wings.
