Rick Nash will be staying in Columbus for the long haul.
The 25-year old forward has signed an eight-year, $62.4 million contract extension with the Blue Jackets. The yearly cap hit on the deal is $7.8 million.
And here is one of the comments on Puck-rakers this morning:
but he’s not even a top 20 player because he doesn’t go all out every shift!!!!!
Enjoy the next eight years in Columbus, Rick. I wish you the best, on the ice and off the ice, putting up with the idiots who live here.
