Rick Nash in same position as Joe Thornton once was

Nearly 6 1/2 years later, it looks as though it will happen again. Just as the Bruins dealt away Joe Thornton, the No. 1 pick in the 1997 draft, it appears the Blue Jackets will do the same with Rick Nash, the top choice in the 2002 draft.

Sit back and enjoy, Boston fans. We know this can be some kind of fun, and it will serve as an interesting comparison with what happened here in November 2005.
