Now it’s official, filed with the league and announced by the teams.

The Rangers get Rick Nash, 28, minor-league defenseman Steve Delisle and a conditional third-round pick (which goes back to Columbus if the Rangers reach the Cup final) for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a first-round pick, believed to be in 2013.

Here is Aaron Portzline’s story from the Columbus Dispatch. [1]

Nash, 28, has six years remaining on an eight-year, $62.4 million contract, so his cap hit annually is $7.8 million, highest on the team. But the Rangers had around $15 million under the cap, and with the subtraction of Dubinsky’s (more than $4M per) and Anisimov’s salaries, they still have $13.3M to spend to the current cap (which is expected to be lower once the new CBA is, ahem, negotiated).
