Steve Zipay at Blue Notes reports two people have mentioned to him that Mike Sauer may get traded to Phoenix for 22-year-old RW Viktor Tikhonov (8g, 8a in 64 games last year).
...looks like Sauer's great game tonight may have been a tryout for another team rather than the Rangers.
...Rangers must think Sauer will be claimed on waivers if sent down to Hartford and are trying to get something for him.
Zipay also says Columbus scouts have been watching the Rangers and C Stephen Weiss may be available in Florida.
