Who needs sleep on a Saturday night?!?!

As the night has gone on, the “Rick Nash to the Boston Bruins” rumors have intensified. In fact, they’ve intensified hour-to-hour, it seems.

The latest, however, is a pretty substantial update:

YIKES.

If Nick Kypreos is to be believed, Rick Nash is going to be a Boston Bruin.

The Brassard salary implications point refers to the Pittsburgh Penguins acquiring Derick Brassard after some weird money move involving the Vegas Golden Knights and the Ottawa Senators.

It’s long been presumed that any deal involving Nash to the Bruins would involve the Rangers retaining some salary, the Rangers taking a contract from the Bruins or both.

Any combination of those things could be the salary cap implications Kypreos is referring to above.

We were debating a potential Nash trade in our Slack chat, so let’s throw them out there.

  • Dan: Austin Czarnik, Adam McQuaid and a 2nd-round pick
  • Chris: Adam McQuaid, Peter Cehlarik and a 2nd-round pick; NYR retains some salary
  • Jason: Matt Beleskey, Peter Cehlarik and a 1st-round pick
  • Jake: Matt Beleskey, Peter Cehlarik and Florida’s 3rd-round pick

What do you think? DON’T GO TO SLEEP, WHO KNOWS WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

EDIT (11:57 PM): Alright, maybe you can go to bed after all.
