Not sure how this is going to work today, but with the Rangers having a morning skate at MSG, and a game tonight, I’m planning on spending the entire day in NYC and not, as usual, at my desk in my pajamas waiting out the 3 p.m. deadline. …
So I’ll be on the blog all day long, but not sure if I’ll be doing a running list of trades as usual. We’ll see how it goes.
Anyway, I know you guys usually put the trades up in the comments before I put them in the main post, so it probably won’t matter.
As of now, there’s not much chance that Rick Nash is coming to the Rangers because of Scott Howson’s demands. But if San Jose’s not interested in parting with Logan Couture, and if Toronto is really out of the running, maybe Howson will come crawling back to Glen Sather with a proposal that doesn’t include Derek Stepan, any of the Rangers’ top four defensemen or Chris Kreider.
Doubt it. Looks dead to me. I imagine that Sather will try to make some minor upgrades, add some veteran presence at one or more positions, rentals most likely. We’ll see. I also think Sather is in a position of great strength in that he loves his team, and so does his coach, and they would have no problem going the rest of the distance with the roster as it currently looks.
