Alex Frolov to be "showcased"

Marian Gaborik, who has two hat tricks in his last 12 games but only two goals in the other 10 matches, will skate with Derek Stepan and Ruslan Fedotenko while Artem Anisimov will reclaim his spot between Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan. Brian Boyle and Brandon Prust will play with Alex Frolov while Sean Avery and Erik Christensen have been booted to the fourth unit with Derek Boogaard.

Avery skated with Boyle and Prust on Tuesday, which was when Frolov's interview with a news outlet in Russia in which he complained about his ice-time and assignment to the fourth line appeared in translated form on the Internet.

It would be no surprise if the switch was made in order to showcase Frolov, 0-0 in his last eight games and 1-0 in his last 12. Glen Sather likely is the most tolerant GM in the league, but he is not at all big on underachieving players complaining in public, no matter the language.

According to Bruce Garrioch,Simon Gagne is available not but Frolov

While Alex Frolov of the Rangers is a possibility after he spoke out to a Russian reporter about his lack of ice time under coach John Tortorella, New York GM Glen Sather hasn’t been offering him around.

Glen Sather hasn't been offering him around YET or NYET in Frolov's case

Gagne has a $5.25 million cap hit which was Joker's cap hit.

Ales Kotalik($3 million)and Chris Higgins($2.25 million)for Joker($5.25 million)and Brandon Prust($500,000 last season).Rangers picked up $500,000 in the deal.

Alex Frolov($3 million)and Matt Gilroy($1.75 million/$2.1 million salary)for Simon Gagne($5.25 million).Gagne has a NTC. TB would want to move a D on a one way contract. They have Randy Jones($1 million),Mike Lundin($750,000) and Matt Smaby($525,000) as expiring contracts. Latter two are group II's. Rangers would be taking on too much money with Jones or Lundin. Smaby is no good. All are lefties.
