08:29 AM ET 04.23 | A somewhat murky -- publicly, anyway -- chain of command may serve as job security for Todd McLellan and Doug Wilson, but rostered players are another story. Who goes? Trades happen only if teams have mutual needs and economic flexibility. ... Player movement could be further restricted by uncertainty about the collective bargaining agreement, which expires in September. One wild card in the marketplace is the likely availability of Columbus Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash. Nash definitely was interested in becoming a Shark at the trade deadline, though no deal could be worked out. If something does develop, it could cost the Sharks a player they otherwise would want to keep, perhaps a Joe Pavelski or a Ryane Clowe.

Please don't let facts obfuscate what could be a summer long thread here!

Why would Nash want to go to this continuing episode of coming up short?

I thought the list of teams was Toronto, Boston, NYR and the Sharks? Maybe it got paired down to the first 3, 2 of which said they weren't going to give up the assets that Columbus wanted and the 3rd that invoked extreme laughter from Columbus when they looked at the roster.

The Sharks already have Thornton. What do they want with Nash?

On the other hand .... he won't have to learn how to disappear during the playoffs. He'd fit right in. ;-)

Waving hand frantically....pick me, pick me....I know who it is. :-)

The thought of Columbus laughing at anyone's roster is in itself, laughable.

it can be a doubl;e edged sword I think. Lots of chatter tends to bring high expectations...ask Redden, Gomez, or almost anyone else signed by Lord Irk and Slats.
but the flip side is, as Oscar Wilde once noted, 'It's better to be talked about than NOT talked about", so there is an ego issue

okay, I've used the word obfuscate AND quoted a 19th century playwrite (and noted poufda)....what the hell did I eat this morning?

My understanding was he didn't want to play out west as he wanted it to be easy for his family to go to his games. Either way, until he's dealt, it's all [b]heresy[/b].

I'm not really sure but I bet it's not part of B-irkie's morning meal.

How to fix the Sharks is getting rid of Marleau. As much as we like to rip on Joe, he has actually showed up the last few years. They got rid of one no show in Heatley, now try to get rid of the other one. Marleau is the symbol of failure.

I'm not a Vancouver fan, but I would be interested how he would play between the Sedin sisters.

He poors LaBatts on his cereal. He wants to hear that Snap, Crackle, and Burp

I was always a fan of Joe T, but hated how he is the A-Rod of the NHL. Maybe the time has come for him to go also. Maybe him for Nash...that way, Joe doesn't have to worry about crashing in the playoffs

Joe has actually produced numbers the last like 5 years in the playoffs. But he might need to go, if he does though Marleau should be going along iwth him. There is one constant in the Sharks playoff failures, and that Marleau.
