Rangers trade All-Star winger Nash to Bruins

Holden heads to Boston and updates on the bantam AAA Sabres, female Slash and junior B Merchants in Rinkside Report

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.

Nash - who was acquired Sunday in a deal that sent a 2018 first-round pick, a 2019 seventh-round pick, Ryan Spooner, Ryan Lindgren and Matt Beleskey to NY - made his debut later that night against the Sabres at KeyBank Center. Nash is in the final year of his contract that carries an annual cap hit of $7.8 million, and he is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

"We hope he's going to be the impact player he has been", said Sweeney of Rick Nash prior to the B's 4-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

It didn't take long for the Boston Bruins to make a move this trade deadline. His time in NY puts him in a class few are a part of regardless of sport.

The Boston Bruins made a flurry of moves on Sunday that clearly are in an effort to position the club for a chance to vie for a Stanley Cup championship this season.

Zinedine Zidane: 'Real Madrid players have their confidence back'
The French striker then stole the ball and laid off for Bale to make it 2-0 in the first minute of the second half. There is always pressure when you are Real Madrid's No. 9, he is used to that.

"I wasn't going to hold them hostage or anything like that, but I wanted to go to a place that wanted me and a place that had a chance to win, " he said. Wouldn't surprise me if he uses his time in Boston as an audition for his next deal.

To his credit Spooner had turned his game around this season and showed that he wanted to stick with the Bruins, and actually had lesser, but comparable, numbers to Nash with nine goals and 25 points this season in Boston.

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. There should be at least one or two more blockbusters but expect teams to try hard to find role players as well.

In anticipation of trading Nash, the Rangers had the forward sit out their past two games to avoid the possibility injury.

In return for Nash, the Blueshirts have acquired defenseman Ryan Lindgren, forwards Ryan Spooner and Matt Beleskey. Ryan McDonagh, still on the block, could bring back more than any of them.

Facing Chelsea means less and less every year, says Mourinho
There has not been an away win in a league meeting between these clubs since Chelsea's 1-0 triumph at Old Trafford in May 2013. Paul Pogba (centre) wants to feel valued again by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho (left).

The departure of Spooner means he will likely replace him on the second line. He was originally drafted in the first overall of the 2002 National Hockey League draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Overall, he has 434 goals and 799 points. But the deal leaves me wanting and expecting much more, even with the inclusion of the first rounder, based on NY having dead cap space for the future. He was Boston's second round pick in the 2010 draft and can become a restricted free agent at the end of his current one-year deal.

Lindgren is now in his sophomore season at the University of Minnesota, having been selected by the Bruins in the second round of the 2016 draft.

As well as the Boston Bruins have been playing, general manager Don Sweeney wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to make them better.

The sagging Rangers were eight points behind Columbus for the final wild card spot before Sunday's game.
