A new goalie as a backup, maybe. Maybe "goalie" is a code word for "coach".

It's ESPN...take it with a grain of salt...


and I don't really see the point of trading the only guy outside of Gabby that puts points up consistently...

ESPN is a joke when it comes to hockey coverage.

It depends. If the deadline comes around and we are out of the playoff picture, maybe you trade Prospal to a contender for a pick or prospect.

ESPN charges for trade rumors now?

That I could see...but not 1/3 of the way through the season...we are still very much in the playoff hunt despite the last two games...

Watch Sportscenter and tell me how much hockey coverage you see....that should tell you all you need to know...

sooo... our second best forward for a guy who will play 15 games a year. Unless its a 20 y/o im not getting it.

Honestly, I think we can all agree that, even with moves at the deadline, we're not going to be a cup-contending team. Prospal would be very attractive to other teams in the league and I wouldn't hesitate using him to bring something good back. Maybe even use him to dump a garbage contract? That might be a little too hopeful.

hlundqvist30* 11-29-2009 06:54 PM

The crap is a joke. They use the "Rangers Rants" blog as their "sources" for this information, where the posts were 100% speculation. They're not saying they have sources that say the Rangers are in the market for a goalie, but just that they saw a Ranger blog that said the Rangers need one. It would be no different than me coming here to post that The Mouth says on his blog that we need a new goalie.

Same thing with the Prospal ****. They use Ranger Rants as their source and all Ranger Rants did was speculate as to who could be traded.

ESPN gets their Insider Information from Eklund.

nyr2k2 11-29-2009 07:16 PM

The post CLEARLY says they might be interested in a new BACKUP goalie. It also says Prospal is a possible asset, based off of a list of "unmoveable players" created by Rangers Rants.

This is not news, guys, and not even really a rumor.
