The first-round pick figures to be the most significant element to that endeavor, as Spooner is set to be a free agent at year's end and Beleskey has spent most of this season in the minors.
Lindgren, 20, was a second-round pick by the Bruins in 2016 and is playing for the University of Minnesota. Nash arrived in time to make his Bruins' debut. He'll be a restricted free agent due for a raise from his $2.825 million cap hit this summer, but the Rangers should have the flexibility to re-sign or trade him depending on what they want to do. It was unclear if Spooner was going to be available for the Rangers when they took on the Red Wings Sunday night at the Garden, with a pregame ceremony for raising Jean Ratelle's No. 19 to the rafters. With guys like Bergeron, Rask, and Chara having insane years, the Bruins management needed to compliment this team the way they see fit and go after the Stanley Cup this season.
The 6-foot-4 Nash was the first overall pick by the Blue Jackets in the 2002 draft. The Rangers sent Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a first-round pick in the 2013 draft to Columbus in the deal.
23 killed in multiple attacks in Afghanistan
The NDS compound is located near North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters and the United States embassy. Meanwhile, a suicide blast in Kabul has become the latest in a spate of attacks across the Afghan capital.
Another player to leave the struggling Rangers behind for greener pastures, Nash has 28 points (18 G, 10 A) on the year and becomes Boston's fourth-leading goal scorer. He is now at the University of Minnesota where he has seven points in 33 games.
With teams like the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs also at the top of the conference, the Nash deal solidifies the Bruins atop the ranks and give them a unsafe weapon going forward.
And with Nash off the market, the focus of trade attention also turns to whether Sabres forward Evander Kane and Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson will also be dealt by Monday afternoon. And we have to look at our best players and our best assets. Gionta returns for a 16th National Hockey League season after serving as captain of the United States Olympic team, which was eliminated following a loss to the Czech Republic in the quarterfinal round at the Pyeongchang Winter Games on Tuesday. "Unfortunately, that might hit home a little bit with some guys that have been here and had some success".
