Rick Nash Trade Rumors: Boston Bruins Reportedly On Nash's NHL Trade Deadline Wish List

The Boston Bruins are reportedly among the list of five teams to which Rick Nash would agree to be traded.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings are also on Nash's wish list, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

Nash, the high-scoring Columbus Jackets captain, has been the center of NHL Trade Rumors in recent days amid chatter that the Blue Jackets are ready to deal. Just 27 years old, Nash has already compiled 277 career goals, 18 of them coming this season along with 21 assists.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has noted that he would like to make a deal at the NHL Trade Deadline (Feb. 27), but he must walk a delicate tightrope between adding talent and disrupting the championship core that brought Boston last season's Stanley Cup.

The Bruins have struggled recently, especially scoring the puck, with three shutouts against them already in the month of February. Nash's natural scoring touch would surely help the B's if he did not disrupt their chemistry.
