  • Print

Rick Nash, so far the biggest name on the NHL rumour mill ahead of the Feb. 27 trade deadline, has given the Columbus Blue Jackets a list of five teams to which he'll OK a trade, the Columbus Dispatch reports.

The Dispatch reports that the Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings, New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs "are believed to be on the approved list for Nash."

The paper also says the Jackets are seeking at least one young player on an NHL team's roster, as well as top prospects and draft picks.

'Rock star status' hurting Ovie: Kolzig

Former Washington Capitals goaltender Olaf Kolzig has some advice for star forward Alexander Ovechkin: get over your "rock star status."

Kolzig, the team's associate goaltending coach, told the Washington Post late Wednesday that Ovechkin should pay more attention to his game than the attention he receives and should return to playing the fun exuberant style he displayed in his early years in the league.

"He just has to get back to being the way he was in his younger days and maybe not get wrapped up too much in the rock star status that comes with being Alex Ovechkin," Kolzig told the Washington Post.

On Thursday, Ovechkin responded.

"Yeah I just want to look like him. He is a rock star, so -- actually he was a rock star. Right now he's in retirement," Ovechkin told the Post. "It's (not the) situation. I don't think you guys have to give lots of attention about what he said."

Ovechkin also rejected the notion he's no longer playing with exuberance.

"He's not on the team right now," Ovechkin said of Kolzig. "He don't travel. He see couple games and I was suspended when he saw it. So probably he didn't see me lots of time like he used to see me."

Capitals general manager George McPhee backed Kolzig in the tiff.

"I don't disagree with anything that Olie said," McPhee told the paper.
