Bruins acquire Rick Nash in trade with Rangers

The Bruins have suddenly emerged as the legitimate frontrunners for Rangers winger Rick Nash, according to multiple reports.

Lindgren is a 20-year-old defenseman playing at the University of Minnesota, having been the Bruins' second-round pick (No. 49 overall) in 2016.

After the game, if we win, I think there is great peace in myself. Honestly I don't think against Watford my passion was less. It is very important to be calm and not be sad.

Nash has 18 goals and 28 points in 60 games with NY. The Rangers retained half of his prorated $7.8 million salary-cap hit, while the Bruins retained half of Beleskey's $3.8 million hit while he is in the minors. The Rangers announced the deal on Sunday morning.

While on paper it might seem like the Bruins gave up a lot in the deal, the truth is the Bruins landed the top available winger on the market and had to move all of those pieces in order to make the salary cap side of things work. He came to the Rangers in the 2012-13 season with six years left on an eight-year, $62.4-million contract.

With the puck dropping in Buffalo at 5 p.m. EST, it wasn't expected that Nash would be able to arrive in team to join his new teammates, but the Bruins are apparently eager to integrate the forward right away.

Despite sitting out New York's last game with the trade deadline on the horizon, Nash has raised his trade value over the last month - scoring nine goals in his last 16 games played. And we're going to need to bring in a lot of young players and guys that can play in the game today.
