But luckily reader Mich, who is an Insider, e-mailed me the story...
"Petr Sykora will probably sign with a team this week, USA Today's Kevin Allen tweets. Previously, we heard there were four team interested in the veteran.
Teams that have previously shown interest are the Ottawa Senators, New York Rangers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Dallas Stars, as well as the Calgary Flames, Boston Bruins and Anaheim Ducks.
The Atlanta Thrashers might also be interested."
...as I said in a previous post, I'm on board for signing Sykora.
In other "Rangers are interested" news, the AJC reports that Ilya Kovalchuk was informed by GM Don Waddell after practice today that he will be traded and, wait for it, the Rangers have been rumored to be interested.
Kovalchuk, who is in the final year of his contract that pays him $6,389,260 this season, has 31 goals and 27 assists this year.
...of course the Rangers are kicking the tires on the 26-year-old Kovalchuk, every team should be. If the Rangers were confident they could re-sign Kovalchuk this off-season there's not too many players I wouldn't give up for him. Including Dubinsky or Callahan.
