So we can silence the Scott Gomez to Columbus thoughts, as the Rick Nash saga appears to be over.
This afternoon, the Columbus Blue Jackets traded their captain to the New York Rangers.
Minor league rearguard Steven Delisle and a conditional third-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft also go to New York.
In exchange, Columbus gets forwards Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov, defenseman Tim Erixon and the Rangers' first-round selection in the 2013 draft.
Columbus will regain its third-round pick if the Rangers make it to the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.
Nash waived his no-movement clause prior to the trade, which is conditional on all players passing a physical by 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
Barring injuries, or further transactions, the Rangers forward lines should look something like this.
Carl Hagelin - Brad Richards - Rick Nash
Chris Kreider - Derek Stepan - Marian Gaborik
Taylor Pyatt - Brian Boyle - Ryan Callahan
Mike Rupp - Jeff Halpern - Arron Asham

For those asking, BJ's GM Scott Howson has said nothing on Twitter over the deal. For that matter, he's tweeted nothing since February, the same time Nash made it clear he wanted out of the Buckeye State.
