One player I had been mentioning the Rangers should take a flyer on is Petr Sykora who was recently waived from the Minnesota Wild. But forget that now as Kevin Allen of USA Today, via Twitter, reports that the former Ranger had abdominal surgery Wednesday and is out for the season.
...i thought he would have been a nice, cheap pick-up for the rest of the season. Oh well.
While, Darren Dreger at TSN reports that Rangers are one of six teams the Oilers' Sheldon Souray said he would drop his no-trade clause to join this season.
Souray had surgery on Tuesday to correct damage sustained in a fight with the Flames Jarome Iginla on Saturday. He says he has every intention of returning to the ice before the end of the regular season and expects to be playoff-ready.
...this would be one of the all-time bone head moves if the Rangers traded for Souray.
