Since MDZ is signed and we now know what kind of cap space Sather is working with, I was looking at defensemen who are set to become UFA this coming offseason. Rangers absolutely need a reliable, veteran d-man to round out the group.

Here are some potential targets. This is of course assuming the Rangers are in the playoff picture and the trading team is out of the playoff picture by the trade deadline:

Lydman (ANA) - $3 million
Leopold (BUF) - $3 million
Aucoin (CLB) - $2.25 million
Sutton (EDM) - $1.75 million
Fistric (DAL) - $1.475 million
Hannan (NAS) - $1 million

Slim pickings but don't see Sather obtaining a contract which carries any salary over to next year unless he makes some kind of big deal while getting rid of an established forward.

This would be a non-issue if Sauer was healthy. Ugh.
