Interesting note from the Columbus Dispatch today. Turns out the Ottawa Senators were the frontrunner for Rick Nash before they pulled out of talks, citing their absence on his list of approved trading partners.

Aaron Portzline explained on the Dispatch’s Blue Jackets Xtra site what Senators GM Bryan Murray’s assertion that Ottawa is out of the running this way:

“That’s a setback to the process, as source says the Blue Jackets got deeper into talks with the Senators than any other club. It was in those talks that the Marc Methot-for-Nick Foligno idea was born, a trade that was consummated yesterday.”
