What The Rangers Want For Callahan

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The Rangers, who are concerned over contract length, are seeking to get at least one NHL player and one prospect or high draft pick in exchange for Callahan, who turns 29 next month.

The Blueshirts would send Callahan to Tampa Bay in a straight-up exchange for Martin St. Louis, but Lightning GM Steve Yzerman has no interest in such a swap, even if the 38-year-old winger who is under contract through next season at a $5.625 million cap hit told management just prior to the Olympic break he would welcome a trade to the Rangers, and only to the Rangers.

Sather is not willing to add young pieces and draft picks to the exchange. Talks between the Rangers and Lightning have not advanced since the roster freeze lifted on Monday.

But if the gap of nearly $20 million between the Rangers and Callahan makes it easy to understand why the parties are on the verge of a divorce, the same isn’t true regarding Girardi.
