Nash, 33, is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season.
This trade took about a day or so to pull off because of cap complications. Up until Sunday, that second line right wing spot was held by Ryan Spooner, who was sent to NY along with Matt Beleskey, prospect Ryan Lindgren, and two draft picks (2018 first round and 2019 seventh round).
In addition, the Rangers retaining 50 percent of Nash's $7.8 million cap hit, the Bruins will retain part of Beleskey's $3.8 million hit.
This marked the second trade between the two teams this past week. They upgrade on Krejci's wing without giving up any of their elite prospects.

Boston got their rental in Nash to start making their push towards the playoffs to be the team that comes out of the Tampa Bay-Toronto-Boston Atlantic Division triangle.
This was his sixth season on Broadway, and he amassed 145 goals in 375 regular-season games. He automatically adds another scoring punch to a team that is ranked seventh in total goals in the National Hockey League. He may not be the Rick Nash of old, but he still automatically bolsters a team that's already tied for seventh in the league in goals scored at 191. In his first season as a Ranger, the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, Nash had 42 points in 44 games and he peaked with a career-high 42 goals during the 2014-15 season. Boston effectively swapped one for the other in its top six - a 26-year-old with limitations in Spooner for a bigger, more battle-tested option in Nash, who's a much better two-way player. Spooner became expendable to the organization in the deal because of the great play of the third line consisting of Danton Heinen-Riley Nash-David Backes and Spooner doesn't fit as a fourth liner.
This season he has 28 points in 60 games. Spooner's contract runs out after this year, and if he can prove that he can stay then he'll most likely be in the Rangers future. And we're going to need to bring in a lot of young players and guys that can play in the game today. He was thrown into this deal just for cap purposes. He plays for the University of Minnesota.
