500 No Rick Nash, no significant moves for Rangers

As of Sunday evening, 21 hours before the deadline, it sure sounds as if the Rangers will not be getting Rick Nash. It also sounds as if, unless something major changes, they will not be making any significant moves before the 3 p.m. deadline tomorrow. Guessing that Columbus wouldn’t back…
