Report: Nash would accept trade to Maple Leafs

  Report: Nash would accept trade to Maple Leafs Rick Nash is willing to leave the Big Apple for the Big Smoke. With the New York Rangers prepared to enter a rebuild, the team approached the veteran forward - who carries a modified no-trade clause - to provide a list of clubs to which he'd be willing to accept a trade.

Rick Nash provided the New York Rangers with his 18-team no-trade list yesterday upon their request, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie. He can now be traded to the 12 omitted clubs.

The Rangers have already reportedly made it clear they intend to be sellers at this year's trade deadline, so asking for Nash's no-trade list isn't all that surprising.

The 33-year-old winger is in the final year of a contract that comes with a cap hit of $7.8 million. He has 15 goals and 10 assists in 52 games, but has been marred by an uncharacteristically low shooting percentage of 9.3.

The veteran has never won a Stanley Cup in his career, so the 12 teams left off his no-trade list are likely the ones he feels give him the best chance of a ring.
