Doesn't look like Nash will be dealt inside the division

Columbus Blue Jackets star Rick Nash would have approved a trade to the Detroit Red Wings, but multiple reports indicate that won't be his landing spot.

It is believed that the Red Wings made "a hell of an offer" for Nash, but that Columbus general manager Scott Howson and the rest of the front office have no desire to let Nash haunt them for years to come with a division rival.

The asking price for Nash is believed to be multiple NHL forwards -- a steep price for any team to pay, even Detroit. This also would mean the Blackhawks -- who, to be clear, aren't believed to be in the mix, anyways -- wouldn't be considered a landing spot.

There are five remaining teams considered as favorites to land Nash: the Boston Bruins, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and San Jose Sharks.
