Nash has not been used in the shootout this season.

Adam Rotter: Nash has been good lately but his play hasn't equaled production in the goal column.

Steen has a full no-trade clause, meaning as long as he's happy in St.

Louis, he doesn't have to entertain the notion of a trade.

Which leaves Oshie, the former Olympic darling whose name has been bandied about in NHL trade rumors before, as the likeliest candidate to headline a hypothetical deal with the Rangers for Nash.

That being said, a deal would be difficult for a couple of reasons beyond Nash's own limited no-trade clause - the Blues are faced with the (good) problem of having to pay elite young goal-scorer Vladimir Tarasenko in the not-too-distant future, meaning their already-high payroll is about to go even higher.The lack of a gritty energy guy like Mats Zuccarello, who seemed to flourish alongside Nash and Derick Brassard at the top of the New York lineup through the final stretch of the season, but who missed the remainder of the Ranger playoff run after suffering what was recently revealed to be a fractured skull and brain contusion due to a puck he took to the head in Game 5 of the Rangers first-round playoff series against the Penguins, certainly affected Nash's game this postseason.Rick Nash scored on a breakaway on Tuesday against Montreal and has a three-game point streak.Of course, it's silly for Brooks to suggest that Nash should be jettisoned by the Rangers because of his failings in the postseason - only to then be picked up by a Blues team that has, under head coach Ken Hitchcock, developed a reputation for following overwhelmingly successful regular seasons with frustratingly inept and disappointing playoff efforts.Still, if Hitchcock is enamored with Nash as Brooks intimates, it's not out of the realm of possibility that the two sides could come together on a deal.Nov 6, 2016; New York, NY, USA; New York Rangers left wing Rick Nash (61) skates during the third period against the Winnipeg Jets at Madison Square Garden.
