Amid all the trade talks surrounding Rick Nash and the New York Rangers, there was a pretty lengthy list of untouchables as deemed by New York that the Blue Jackets really wanted/needed in a potential deal. Needless to say, it didn't happen.
One of the names on that list was Chris Kreider, the Rangers' first-round draft pick in 2009 who is currently starring at Boston College.
While Rangers fans might be familiar with him, a lot of the fans around the league probably don't. So consider this your introduction.
With BC hosting Vermont this weekend on CBS Sports Network, New York general manager phoned in and had a conversation about Kreider. It includes some pretty positive praise of not only Kreider, but another BC product with the Rangers, Brian Boyle.
