Lost in the fireworks last night was Sam Rosen mentioning during the telecast that for the second game in a row the Calgary Flames were scouting the Rangers.
With the Rangers already playing their only game against the Flames back in November, one has to think Calgary is interested in some Rangers personnel.
Not sure who the Flames may be willing to part with, but TSN is reporting that the Flames are going to be active in the Ilya Kovalchuk sweepstakes. This could mean a player like Olli Jokinen could be available. Also a reader commented in my George Laraque post on rumors that the Flames are looking to deal tough guy Brian McGratton to the Blueshirts.
Just an aside, while I was checking out the Flames roster I noticed that Nigel Dawes has 10 goals and 15 assists on the season. Which would put him fourth on the Rangers in goals and fifth in points. Just sayin'.
