NHL Trade Deadline: Sharks Interested In David Jones; Logan Couture Remains No-Go In Rick Nash Talks

He's not quite Rick Nash, or really even in the same ballpark, but the San Jose Sharks are reportedly interested in David Jones of the Colorado Avalanche. John Shannon of Sportsnet reported on Twitter that the Avalanche are looking to move Jones and that, more than just being interested, the Sharks are one of the top two teams with the most interest, alongside their long-time rivals, the Detroit Red Wings.

Jones is an interesting target, with the power to score in flurries but without much consistent pressure. Still, he's got 15 goals in the season and piled on 13 assists on top of that. He'd be an immediate contributor for the Sharks and does fit the bill of a deadline trade. So far, there's no information on what the Avalanche could be looking for, but they're likely motivated to get a deal done before the 12:00 noon pacific deadline.

In other RICK NASH news (did we mention Rick Nash yet?), a reassuring tweet from Bruce Garrioch came out regarding Logan Couture and a potential deal in regards to Nash. The general idea? Nothing has changed and Couture is not part of these talks as it stands. Couture absolutely shouldn't be, either, and his departure would probably up the depression rate in San Jose by a couple percent.

And finally, Nash is on the ice skating for practice with the Blue Jackets, per Aaron Portzline. So there's that.
