The Columbus Blue Jackets are one of the few teams in the NHL that are absolutely out of the playoff hunt. With the worst record in the league, the team sits nine points behind the next lowest team in the Eastern Conference, the Edmonton Oilers. So it seems clear that Columbus will make some deals before the trading deadline on Monday. And the continuing word is that one of those casualties is team captain Rick Nash.

According to TSN, the San Jose Sharks "are emerging as a strong contender" for Nash. The site's sources say that the team "initially targeted Logan Couture," but the Blue Jackets said they wouldn't trade him.

TSN notes that "Nash and Sharks veteran Joe Thornton are good friends and have shown an impressive chemistry when playing together internationally that isn't being overlooked."

Nash has scored 20 goals and notched 22 assists this season.
