Rick Nash played at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, one of the arenas he could end up competing in more often this season if the New York Rangers pull off the biggest deal before the upcoming trade deadline, now just one week away. Nash also showed exactly why he's such a hot commodity, tying the game with 1:33 left in regulation, as ESPN New York's Katie Strang pointed out in her story on Nash's MSG appearance.

He also faced some pointed questions from Strang and the New York media about his future, brushing a few off with no comments but reiterating what he's said since news emerged that he was on the market. He's still with Columbus. Right now.
