The Boston Bruins have already been connected to the New York Rangers through trade rumours this season. 

Earlier this month we started to hear various reports of how the Bruins were seriously looking at Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh to solidify the left side of the defense. 

However the Bruins are also likely listed on Rangers forward Rick Nash's list of teams he would accept a trade to. 

Many would argue that the team needs help on the second line wing for David Krejci more than it needs help on the blueline. Nash is capable of switching between left and right wing, and he could be the ideal solution. 


So what exactly would it take for the Bruins to land Nash?

Josh Wegman of TheScore suggests the Bruins could land Nash for a combination of a first round pick and young defenseman Jakub Zboril, Wegman also suggests the Rangers would be more than willing to retain some of Nash's salary for the rest of the season as he becomes UFA this summer. 

The deal would allow the Marchand-Bergeron-Pastrnak line to stay together and give the team some secondary scoring with Nash and Krejci on the second line.
