as for some inside info, it's not great but it is something.

Ranger scouts have been all over the WHL for about a week now.
What you say about the 2nd pick is not really true. The Canucks do not have a 2nd this year and the Rangers balked at accepting a 2nd in '05 with Grenier. Umberger was the first target for the Rangers. Initial contact with Lawton began around 1:00 today as the deadline drew near. Vancouver was going to receive a supplemental pick (46th overall) if another team signed Umberger, so they looked at
this deal as a 2nd and Grenier.
