Yeah, not happening.

The Rangers beat writers have done a few interviews with Slats and Torts in the recent days and they have stated how happy they are with the progression of the teams young core (Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, Staal, Girardi, McD, Sauer, Stepan, etc) that the team is now in "add from the outside" mode, whether that's via UFA or trade. This is to compliment the existing core and fill in the holes as need be (Like a #1 center AKA Brad Richards) to make a serious run.

And those that say a D-core of Staal, Girardi, McD, Sauer, and some combo of MDZ, Erixon, V-Tank, and/or a UFA is not that good, you are out of your minds.

Rangers had something like the 5th or 6th least amount of goals allowed last season with two rookies playing on the second pair. McD and Sauer played solid last season.

The Rangers will not be moving any of their RFA's unless they are named Boyle. Just not happening unless its for a serious upgrade at some position.

Why would they need cap room for a capologist like me? Personell do not go on the cap.

Maybe I honestly haven't watched enough of him to agree or disagree, for what I've seen of him he was very very solid especially for a rookie.

Canucks might be looking for a center for Shirokov, in Chicago. Anisimov?

Problem with him is you need to watch him more than a few times to see how good he is. He's hardly noticeable (which is a great thing) when on his game. He doesn't have much more upside, but he will continue to be a great 2nd pairing d-man for his whole career. He's definitely a 3/4 level player right now who might round out to be a very strong #3.

And this was the same EKLUND that stated earlier today that the Rangers were making the best offer to trade for Parise. HELLO the Devils are not trading him to the Rangers so he can score on them 6 times a year and if the Rangers and Devils some how agreed on a trade for Parise (AKA hell freezing over), one of those key RFA's would HAVE to be included in a deal for him. Probably more then one. You think the Rangers would make that move, then trade another one of their key RFA's to the Oilers or 'Nucks?

Come on now. The guy is just throwing stuff at the wall and hoping it sticks. The only time he is some what reliable is with Flyers rumors. And even then, sometimes a blind squirrel finds a nut...

No offence, but this was the Avs-fan catch-phrase when Chris Drury was there. I remember it well!

Anything can happen. Captains are traded all the time, never mind potential captains.

Wow I really want to punch that guy in the face.
As a 'nucks fan I would absolutely LOVE Callaghan, I think he is already an awesome player and only going to get better.
Sadly however there is very very little chance we would be willing to spend the assets required. If the Rangers do trade him I hope they get a lot coming back their way because he deserves it.
Also, if he gets offer-sheeted for say 6mill a year would the Rangers match? I assume so but you never know!

Why would Anisimov play in the AHL? The guy made big strides the last couple of years at the NHL level, there's no reason for him to return to the A. Sorry.

Rangers match anything up to 5M, if you ask me.

The Canucks have nothing to get him via trade. They would have to use an offersheet.

True, I dont see many young players taking control of a team, unless there superstar players. To many young players wont win many games, unless they got some veterans. A veteran wont hurt. Your right.

Here's my question...that blogger says it would make sense for the Ranger to trade Dubinsky if they sign Richards? WHY WOULD THAT MAKE SENSE? Dubinksy is the best LW the Rangers have, and the Rangers, as every Ranger fan continues to point out, have plenty of cap space to sign Richards and their RFAS. It would make sense if the Rangers are getting back a better LW than Dubi, otherwise, it makes no sense.

do you truly think you would get Kessler for either one of these two????? They are good dont get me wrong would love to have them on my team but there is no way either of these two brings back Kess....

While I wouldn't go so far as to say nothing, I do agree that the chances of him getting moved to the nucks are slim to none. Also with the Nucks cap room they won't be offersheeting him 5m plus anyways. I actually hope he stays with the Rangers.
The young core they are building around will be exciting to watch in the years to come, so glad they are shifting away from the old plodding/mediocre rangers of years past.

Sauer turned out to be a gem last season. mcd was pretty good as well, but sauer was just so steady the entire season it was ridiculous. he also has some decent offensive instincts, nothing extraordinary, but quite commendable for a rookie and a second pairing d-man.

defense is not something many ranger fans are worried about. if worse comes to worse i think most rangers fans would bite the bullet this season, and let their young d develop than signing a veteran d-man. also, a veteran d-man would be available come trade deadline if things work out for the best.

Eklund has nailed like 4 deals in the passed two days. Do I think he is 100% legit, no. But does he deserve some sort of credit, Yes I do.

I would say nothing. The only thing you have are picks for an offer sheet. You have no prospects of interest, unfortunately.

Dubie would look good running shotgun to Mike Richards in L.A. and I am sure it would cost a lot more then a 2nd rounder. He is a beast, who is young, strong and can put up points.

Saying that if the Rangers land Brad Richards, they have some huge contracts on the books in Lunqvist, Gabby, Richards and Staal plus Callahans raise. I could see them moving one of the young guys who will be coming into some money. I just dont think it would be for something as paltry as a second rounder.
