Eklund at HockeyBuzz reports...
"The Rangers are a desperate hockey team right now and they have had talks with the Lightning about Lecavalier. There is NO doubt about that. I have it from 4 solid sources that Vinny to NY has been discussed.The major player in that deal would have to be Staal, but of course the
Rangers would have to move money around as well...I am told that Prucha to Pittsburgh or Edmonton, and Rozsival to Dallas are possibilities. Those deals could happen, but the determining factor would be Marc Staal to start...But Dubinsky, Girardi, and some top picks will be included I am told.
With each passing loss I am told the possibility grows larger."
...wow Eklund for once acknowledges that there's a salary cap and that the Rangers would have to move around money to make a move. Is he getting legit on us?
...to the rumor. Which we all know coming from Eklund isn't true. But still fun to look at. Man it would be tough to lose Staal, Dubinsky and Girardi, but this team needs a super star and that's what Lecavalier is. Could we absorb loosing three of our six defensemen (including Rozsival) this year? Probably not. But this team isn't going anywhere this year anyway. Bring up Potter, Fahey and Sanguinetti and get them some experience for next year. Then maybe move Drury or Gomez in the off-season and build the team around Lecavalier. Sound good?
