Rangers Looking to Move Higgins and Kotalik

Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun, in a story on the Ottawa Senators needing to make a trade after hearing that Daniel Alfredson will be out an extended period of time, says that the Rangers are looking to move Chris Higgins and Ales Kotalik.

Unfortunately, one league executive says the Rangers will have a hard time finding a suitor...

“All these guys can be had pretty easily,” said a league executive. “But there’s a reason they’re available: They make too much money and aren’t playing well.”

...if the Rangers really are looking to dump these two, the Blueshirts need Higgins and Kotalik to catch fire offensively these next two months then hope a team has the need and cap room around the trade deadline.

...unfortunately if the Rangers are willing to trade them at the deadline they're probably out of the playoff hunt.
