[1]In case you missed it, Jeff Carter has been traded from Columbus to Los Angeles for Jack Johnson and a No. 1 draft pick [2] … pending Carter passing a physical.

That pretty much takes the Kings out of play for Rick Nash … which means the Rangers’ chances of landing Nash probably have increased. And perhaps means that the pricetag for Nash might go down, too.

Rumors are that L.A.’s Dustin Brown is also available and the Rangers are interested. Stay tuned.
