Don’t Expect Any Major Moves From The Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers just aren’t good enough to deal young assets and draft picks in exchange for quick-fix veteran rentals. And, for the most part, there’s not much interest in the players management wouldn’t mind shedding.

Sharks director of pro scouting John Ferguson Jr. continued to bird-dog the Rangers last night, just as he has done regularly over the last couple of weeks.

It is difficult, however, to imagine the Blueshirts would be in the bidding for the 30-year-old Clowe, a sandpaper-type player the Rangers sorely lack, all right, but for whom the Sharks are apparently seeking a lend-lease bounty worthy of a Marian Hossa.

Nor does it seem logical the Rangers would be willing and/or able to construct a package in exchange for Dan Boyle, the 36-year-old San Jose offense-minded defenseman who was a key component of coach John Tortorella’s 2004 Cup-winning Lightning.
