Tkatchuk to the Rangers?
From Yahoo!'s rumor page:
The New York Rangers desperately need a center to play alongside winger Brendan Shanahan. The team wasn't interested in Craig Conroy, who was shipped to Calgary this week.
Why not? Well, Plan A appears to be St. Louis Blues forward Keith Tkachuk. His contract expires at the end of this season and he has logged considerable time at center for the Blues this season.
If St. Louis' asking price is too high, it is believed the Rangers might pursue Bryan Smolinski of the Chicago Blackhawks or free-agent-to-be Josef Vasicek of the Nashville Predators.

The Post is notorious for false rumours, but I'm not sure how I'd feel about this. It would depend on what we'd give away. I don't want to see draft picks or prospects, but I'd be fine with the usual people implicated (Hossa, Hall, Malik).
One thought: at this point, would people be willing to trade Prucha? I love him, but I think his 30 goals as a rookie were a little skewed and he could be overvalued on the trade market right now. T
