Looks like a slow deadline day so far. Just one Kostityn joining another in Nashville … so far.
John Tortorella held a dumb press conference today — dumb because we really have nothing to ask him at this hour. He did indicate he’d talk again after the deadline if they do something, but he said he’d be OK if the current Rangers roster is the one he had for the rest of the season and playoffs.
At this point, it sounds kinda quiet around MSG. I’m sure Glen Sather is working the phones trying to improve, but I’m also sure that unless Columbus comes back to the table with a much lower asking price, the Rangers aren’t looking to swap any of their valuables.
Still, I expect they will try to make some upgrades, perhaps with rentals-for-picks or lower prospects.
