Rangers Have All The Parts

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

As a matter of fact, I’ll now go on record stating that the acquisitions of Swedish defenseman Christian Backman and forward Fredrik (Call Me Freddie) Sjostrom will be as positive for the Blueshirts roster as last year’s addition of Sean (The Great Gabbo) Avery.

I’ll go one step further and hereby forecast that the roster, as now constituted, is good enough to carry New York to the top of the division and then all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Morning Line

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Sather endorsed Jaromir Jagr, but did not guarantee would be back next year. “He’s been a very good player and great citizen here,” the GM said. “We’ll see how these things develop the next couple of months ... we’ll see how things go.”

Lou Shopping

fom the NY Post,

Lamoriello is believed shopping for a Top Two defenseman and a top center, or at least at Top Six forward. The rumors about Barret Jackman, Jay McKee, Rob Blake, Brian Campbell, Pitkanen and John Liles have been long in place, and up front, Robert Lang, Martin Havlat, Brad Richards, Ladislav Nagy and Olli Jokinen as well.

A couple of new names joined the list yesterday, notably Chicago center Jason Williams, injured most of this season but nearly a point-per-game man and an upcoming unrestricted. Atlanta’s Alexei Zhitnik was mentioned speculatively as a possible rental target.

Rangers Interested In Boyle

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Sources have told The Post that the Rangers’ interest in Boyle goes far deeper than merely acquiring the defenseman as a rental. Indeed, it is believed that GM Glen Sather would ask for permission to negotiate a long-term contract with Boyle, among the most feared power play quarterbacks in the NHL, prior to pulling the trigger on a trade.

The Boyle situation is complicated by incoming ownership’s strong preference that Brad Richards, whose contract runs for three more seasons at $7.8M, be moved as a pre-condition to keeping the defenseman

Jagr Staying With Rangers

via Blue Notes at Newsday,

Although the Rangers have denied repeated requests from New York writers for a sitdown with general manager Glen Sather, he spoke with Edmonton reporters and said Jaromir Jagr would not be traded, and that he would like to resign both Jagr and Sean Avery.

Anyone who thought Jagr was going to get traded, raise your hand!

Dealing With Friends

from the NY Daily News,

As usual, expect Sather to deal with GMs with whom he has some personal connection - such as longtime pals Brian Burke of Anaheim, Kevin Lowe of Edmonton or Doug Risebrough of Minnesota or former Edmonton assistant GM Scott Howson (Columbus), former Rangers broadcaster John Davidson (St. Louis) and Phoenix GM Don Maloney, who was Sather’s longtime second-in-command with the Rangers.

Lookout Rangers

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

If the Rangers sedan has a rear view mirror, it should be immediately adjusted.

That ominous brigade in the background is neither a mirage nor a mistake. It IS the New York Islanders, of all people; of all playoff-seeking contenders.

Chauffeur Tom Renney must wonder whether he should be watching the road ahead of him—it leads to Buffalo on Saturday night—or the rampaging SUV with Nassau County plates on his tail.
