Is there any truth to this? (Weekes signs with Rangers?)

Although Weekes could spell the end of Dunham's tenure in NY, I doubt it. I think you'll see both of them play and the team will probably go with the hot guy. Of course they could always alternate the two. Remember, his recurring groin problems seem to be the result of too much steady work. That said, I don't see Dunham going anywhere because of his contract and the fact that if the Rangers were going to pay a chunk of his contract or buy him out, then they might as well pay him to play for them. If nothing else, he could be a serviceable backup. Something I don't think we have in the system, at this time.
As good as Labarbara was last season, it was one great AHL season. How about he does it again before we jam this guy into the NHL. Blackburn won't even get a sniff of the NHL until the 05-06 season (and not just because of a lockout). He needs a full season in Hartford (and probably more) before anybody thinks about him joining the Rangers again.
