The poster by the name of 'JTown' with a Ville Leino Flyers avatar posted that it came from NHLN just now. I don't have NHLN, so I can't confirm or deny it. No one else seems to be reporting it though, so I would take it with a grain of salt.
my gut feeling is that people are going to be disappointed in the lack of activity compared to the number of rumors...too many teams looking to pawn off their high paid guys for huge returns, not enough teams with the cap space or assets to make those deals
of course from our standpoint 1 or 2 deals that involve the rangers is more exciting then 20 deals around the league while we sit around and do nothing so its more about which deals are made then the quantity i guess
If anyone has not noticed, Call Clutterbuck is a RFA. Would be getting a new contract. Not sure why Minnesota will trade him. He should not be asking for a lot. His numbers do not scream 3 million dollar player. I can see him making about 2 million. I would trade for him if we can dump one of our lower level players in the deal for him. Asham + mid/low pick + lower prospect for Clutterbuck.
With the Rangers keeping Richards, they will need to trade players to get under the cap. Might as well be for high draft picks.
They are already under the cap and will still be after signing their RFA's, if they want to change pieces they will have to trade. Which is fine by me, didn't want to see them sign anyone this summer basically.
I love how Holmgren is still trying to add offense, by trading a D-man.
