As hockey fans we often try to sort out trade rumors from various sources to see if they’re legit. For me it’s pretty simple, if one of the major insiders report it, I’ll buy it. Until today I’ve yet to see a real reporter blatantly say that Rick Nash is on the trade market, but now that’s a reality.
Renaud Lavoie from RDS was the first to toss out the Nash rumor last night, suggesting two teams are interested (I’m assuming now there may be 29). Since then many others have weighed in.
From Darren Dreger;

I’m not sure what to think as a Leafs fan. I’m assuming that Burke will at least step in and test the waters, why wouldn’t he?
