"...Nieuwendyk asked the Rangers for multiple components. One scenario included 24-year-old forward Brandon Dubinsky - whose 19 goals is one shy of equalling a career high. Almost every member of New York's young core was believed to have been requested in some way, shape, or form - along with a collection of other assets required to land Richards."
Dreger adds Rangers interest in Richards has been shelved for now, but will resurface in July if - as expected - Richards enters the free agent market. The Maple Leafs will pursue Richards as well.
...if anyone still had any questions whether Sather was serious about a legitimate youth movement you have them no more. Could be Sather's best trade deadline as Rangers GM.
Disappointed Sather couldn't have traded for Winchester from St. Louis. Ducks got him for a 3rd round pick, and I'm sure old friend John Davidson would have helped a little to have him moved to NY. We need size and more toughness (to help Prusk) throughout the playoffs. Sorry, but Zuccarello doesn't cut it, and for that matter, neither does Gaborik.
Hey Kevin. There is a Swedish hockey writer claiming that Sather is not the GM next season. Is that true?
No, I am Swedish :) I've asked him but I haven't got an answer yet. He's a reporter and blogger for Swedens biggest hockey news central.
@maxie Not sure how a swedish writer would have that kind of info and we hadnt heard about it yet.
Gut reaction? Not true, at all.
Perhaps there was something lost in the translation?
