from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
The New York Rangers have closed the book on veteran defenceman Sheldon Souray, sources say.
The Rangers were looking at the former Edmonton Oilers blue-liner likely as a re-entry waivers pickup. They sent scouts to closely watch him in action as a member of the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Souray’s foot speed doesn’t fit with their current team model. He can still shoot, but the Rangers are concerned he can’t move very well, so they will look elsewhere for a power-play pointman.
