Boston Bruins: Breaking down the Rick Nash trade

Adjust Comment Print

During the game, however, Twitter was ablaze with news that the Bruins were putting the full court press on the Rangers to acquire Rick Nash. The Rangers acquired the Bruins' first-round pick in this year's draft as well as forwards Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey and a seventh-round pick in the 2019 draft. And they certainly got a nice haul for him.

The Bruins sit in third place in the Atlantic Division, five points behind the conference-leading Tampa Bay Lightning.

Spooner is expected to make his Rangers debut against Detroit. The Canadiens, who look to be entering a time of rebuilding, now have four second-round picks - and nine total - in the 2018 draft after Sunday's trade. His time in NY puts him in a class few are a part of regardless of sport. But that's the going rate to land the premier winger available on the trade market even if Nash hasn't cracked 40 points with the Rangers in each of the last two seasons.

Rick Nash wasted no time and dove right into his new venture, resetting his sights back on winning the Stanley Cup - but this time as a member of the Bruins. "But I wanted to go a place that wanted me and a place that had a great chance to win. I think Boston fits those both perfectly", said Nash.

Gionta has served as captain of Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Gionta, who just returned from the Olympics, will give the Bruins depth. He has nine goals in 39 games this season and 41 goals in 253 games over parts of six seasons.

The Rangers are slipping out of playoff contention in going 5-16 in their past 21 games since January 7, and have lost six straight in preparing to host Detroit on Sunday.

The real cost here, obviously, is the first round pick and a solid Bruins prospect in Lindgren, a sophomore defenseman at the University of Minnesota and a 2016 second round pick. Based on the standings, the two teams will likely face each other in the first round of the playoffs. In addition to the signing, the team has placed Breen on waivers with the objective of assignment to the Providence Bruins. As the Rangers get set to retire Jean Ratelle's jersey tonight, the two teams involved in that blockbuster trade over 40 years ago did make another deal.

Kane has already acknowledged he expects to be traded, and was held out of Buffalo's lineup for the second consecutive game on Sunday. The 5-foot-7, 178-pound forward last played in the National Hockey League in the 2016-17 season with the Buffalo Sabres, where he appeared in all 82 games and tallied 15 goals and 20 assists for 35 points.

As for the price, we know what Ryan Spooner is and he may hit his stride with the Rangers or elsewhere and become a 20-goal scorer or 70-point producers. A 7th-round pick in 2019 is also going to NY via Boston.
