Ryman doesn't think the Rangers will trade his client but he also thought the contract was essentially done when its not not. Newport handles the talks and not Ryman. The Rangers should look to trade this player. Newport told Zuccarello that other NHL teams are interested in him.
Who said Mashinter had leverage? We'll find out if 1.5 mil is too much for the Rangers soon enough. But you're right they may have to trade him.
