Bruins Acquire Rick Nash From Rangers For Spooner, Beleskey, Others

The Rangers traded Rick Nash to Boston.

The Bruins announced the signing on Sunday, a few hours after they acquired veteran forward Rick Nash in a multiplayer trade with the New York Rangers.

"Our players have made a push and I wanted to inch that along if we could, and reward it in a way", Sweeney said. On the second power play, Nash could take some ice time from DeBrusk, allowing the rookie to be extra energized for his 5-on-5 shifts.

The Rangers also agreed to retain 50 percent of Nash's salary, keep in mind.

The Bruins are chasing the Tampa Bay Lightning for the first spot in the Eastern Conference.

He could become a staple on the Ranger's blueline and is the other key piece besides Spooner to this trade.




The game was Nash's first in almost a week after the Rangers had him sit out their previous two games to avoid the possibility of him getting injured. Gionta is from nearby Rochester, New York, and has a home in Buffalo. The winger will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. The Bruins topped his list, although Nash acknowledged he was ready to go nearly anywhere. "But I wanted to go a place that wanted me and a place that had a great chance to win. I think Boston fits both those perfectly". One additional point is that if Beleskey passes through waivers, only around half the cap space stays on the books, making the next impact somewhere between $950K-$1mil in dead cap space on what may be a $78-82 million cap. He has just six goals and 24 points this season, which is definitely sluggish for a player who was once frequently in the 40-60 range.

An aging core and injuries have put the Rangers in sell mode this month, with NY sitting eight points out of a playoff spot with a record of 27-30-5.

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. He said that the B's were at the top of his list of desired teams to which he could be traded. Approaching the deadline, the Bruins had two major needs: adding scoring options and depth on defense.

Ryan McDonagh, the Rangers defenseman and captain who hasn't played since a 6-1 loss to Boston on February 7 because of an unspecified upper-body injury, has also been mentioned in trade rumors. There were rumors connecting Nash to teams across the league but in the end, the Rangers completed a deal with Boston.

The 33-year-old Nash had 18 goals and 10 assists this season with the Rangers and his first point with the Bruins will be No. 800 in his career.

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. Earlier in the week, the Bruins traded with the Rangers to acquire defenseman Nick Holden, and now they have added Nash.
