3:52 p.m. - Ok everyone I think that's it. Still amazed Sather didn't pull something off. But we have to remember the Rangers did pickup Jokinen, Prust & Shelley before the break & Auld during. All of who addressed needs. Hope everyone enjoyed the trade tracker. I know I did.

11:10 a.m. - Look for Rangers to take hard look at Vancouver's Demitra. (NHL.com writer Andy Strickland)
...Demitra is in the final year of his contract that pays him $4 million this season. This sounds like a quick fix move that Sather is fond of. If this does go down I hope Sather doesn't give up much, if anything. Demitra really helped his trade value with a strong Olympics and playing with Gaborik in Minnesota doesn't hurt.
11:00 a.m. - Devils obtain D Martin Skoula from Maple Leafs. (Bob McKenzie & TSN)
10:44 p.m. - Boston gets 4th round pick in 2011 from Phoenix for Morris. (TSN)

...Hamhuis ($2 million) & Torres ($2.25 million) are both in the final year of their contracts. No need to lose Gilroy for what could be a rental. Torres could be a good fit if the price is right.

...no Islanders. Thank you.
9:55 a.m. - Rangers have not inquired about Souray or Demitra. (Larry Brooks)

9:50 a.m. - Best Deadline Day deals over the past 30 years - (NHL.com)
9:40 a.m. - Rangers interested in Florida's David Booth - (Bergen Record)
...there is expected to be a fire sale in Florida today so I expect Booth, who has missed most of the year with an injury, to be moved. However his salary ($4.25 a year until 2015) will make it very difficult for the Rangers to fit him under the cap unless Florida would be willing to take one of the big three (Drury, Rozsival or Redden) along with I'm assuming someone like Dubinsky. FYI Booth had a goal and an assist last night.
9:35 a.m. - Also from last night - Chelios signs on with Thrashers & Blackhawks add D Boynton from Ducks (TSN)
...earlier in the year Chelios rejected an offer to play in Hartford. However he did say he was interested in playing for the Rangers. I said it at the time and still believe that Chelious would have been a great pick-up as a seventh defenseman for the Rangers.
9:30 a.m. - From last night - Canadiens trade D'Agostini to Blues for Palushaj; Senators acquire defenceman Sutton from Islanders; Penguins obtain Ponikarovsky from Leafs. (TSN)
