While the rumors about where Rick Nash is headed are picking up, including today’s latest rumor involving the Rangers, Nash’s agent is trying to help speed things along.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie tweets that Nash’s agent, Joe Resnick, would like to see things pick up and see his client dealt before the trade deadline on Monday afternoon.

Resnick is basically saying that if the Blue Jackets and GM Scott Howson think things will change if they wait until the summer to figure things out nothing will change with Nash or his desires to be sent out of Columbus.

In essence, get things done sooner rather than later or else things will get awfully uncomfortable for the rest of the season.
