CSNPhilly.com's Tim Panaccio reported Saturday that the Flyers are in serious discussions with the Columbus Blue Jackets to acquire Nash's services.
According to Panaccio, Columbus general manager Scott Howson is seeking forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier -- or one of them with several other players. Philadelphia just acquired defenseman Luke Schenn -- Brayden's older brother -- last week.
Nash carries a $7.8 million cap hit over the next six years. The Blue Jackets' captain had 30 goals and 29 assists in 2011-12.
