A new fan favorite in town. Rick Nash was acquired late Tuesday night. The Blues were shopping since the end of the season for a scoring winger. Talks started late Monday night, but were kept simple. The Sabres GM emailed his price to GM Phil after him inquiring about a possible deal for Nash involving Okposo. Okposo was mentionned a few times in the past by GM Kevin. Okposo will be joined by newly acquired Michal Repik, Andrew Cogliano, drafted Charles Olivier Roussel and a second round pick in 2012.
Rick Nash will add size, speed, scoring and a good defensive game to the Blues line-up. It was a must to rival the other division teams.
Fans and media are already debating how the lines will look on opening night. Nash could very well join Datsyuk alongside Latendresse.
