We are expecting Glen Sather to address the media around 4:45 p.m. to discuss the deadline day.
I will put up audio shortly thereafter.
For those just tuning in, the Rangers acquired 6-7, 270-pound defenseman/winger John Scott—a true enforcer—from the Blackhawks for a fifth-round pick.
They talked to Columbus throughout the day, and apparently put on a press near the deadline, for Rick Nash. But did not, obviously, offer enough to get it done. And then Scott Howson, the Blue Jackets GM, said that it was Nash who initiated the scenario by requesting a trade. That’s surprising. Shocking, actually, that a GM would say that about his team’s captain. Good luck with that relationship going forward.
