"...The Trade freeze ends tonight at midnight and don't be shocked if the Rangers pull a deal. I have been told they are talking to Columbus, Edmonton and San Jose. Prucha is the likely guy that all three teams are highly interested in. Adam Foote has been rumoured to NY, but I HIGHLY doubt that Hitchcock would let that happen. Hitch is loyal and Foote campaigned to get Hitch there and more importantly Hitch's system only works if there are players that can sell his system..."
...this actually may be the first time Eklund is right about something as rumors regarding Prucha have been flying around for days.
