Erskine was the guy it was going to be, though the Rangers were trying to see if they could get Ott. They were waiting to see if Vancouver upped their offer for Rucinsky {Which they did} and the rangers never went back to dallas to get a counter because washington was sniffing around for umberger even despite the carter deal.

morrow was the guy the rangers coveted but those talks never got further then a "not interested" from Dallas.
