The other thing is this, it's not a need right now for the Rangers. They got Markannan and Dunham, Fernandez is just going to be playing third fiddle, so why would they go after him if he isn't a need, he'll probably be insurance and they'll send down Dunham or someone for conditioning and maybe trade off Dunham. But they aren't going to give a hellovalot for Fernandez unless Dunham is forced to retire ala Richter.
a goalie is a major need for the nyi at this point.They aren't thinking so much about next season, as they are making a push for this yr's playoffs.Rangers were reportedly ready to deal bluechip d-man Tjtunen(sp) for 37 yr old Burke.That's a short term desperate move.

their beatwriters and the NY sports radio guys are pointing at Dunham's disappointing play, as one of the reason's the rangers have struggled and why Sather's looking for another goalie.

Blackburn's got a shoulder injury,which is why he hasn't been called up.

rangers are in 10th place.8 points out of the 8th spot with 26 games left.
