While Nash is not currently being shopped by Columbus, sources told the Columbus Dispatch that the team would be willing to listen to offers for the All-Star. The Blue Jackets, who had hoped to be a playoff-caliber team in 2011-12 after acquiring several veteran stars, have been the worst team in the NHL this season, posting only 38 points with a 16-34-6 overall record.
