Brooks doesn't expect anything big:

Indeed, The Post has learned there is essentially no league-wide chatter regarding Gaborik, who not only has scored only one goal in his last 13 games and two in his last 22, but has somehow scored on just two of his last 70 shots. That is almost a mathematical impossibility for a sniper who entered the season with a career 13.3 shooting percentage, but is at 7.9 percent this season.

According to sources, there is considerable interest in Brian Boyle, who logged 17:40 last night in what sure looked like a showcase. Despite a miserable season, the 6-foot-7 center has the size coveted by Cup contenders. Of course, he has the size coveted by the Rangers as well.

Sather, of course, is going to seek to improve his eighth-place team. He will attempt to strengthen the blue line, especially with Marc Staal’s return in doubt. He will attempt to add grit and strength on the wings.

But the GM won’t be playing with a strong hand. And it makes no sense for him or the Rangers to deal away future potential aces. Better to stand pat than try that.

Last night’s victory does not and cannot alter that reality.
