According to Bruce Garrioch. it is being rumored that GM Glen Sather is willing to move anyone not named Chris Kreider, Rick Nash, or Henrik Lundqvist:

Apparently, the Rangers are willing to talk about anybody on their roster with the exception of Rick Nash, Henrik Lundqvist and Chris Kreider. Missing the playoffs after firing coach John Tortorella would be downright embarrassing.


Sather won’t sit back and, after the holidays, there are a few players who could get new destinations.

Highly doubt they'd move Ryan McDonagh either.

I can see Girardi, MDZ, and Richards being primary trade targets.

I would have thought McDonagh would also be untradeable.

I think Del Zotto is likely the only one that gets traded this season.

I am never going to spend another second watching sports ever again here's why.

 What are the canucks called? They are called Canucks Sports and Entertainment. Ever wondered what Sports and entertainment means? Here's the defination: Sports entertainment is a type of spectacle which presents an ostensibly competitive event using a high level of theatrical flourish and extravagant presentation, with the purpose of entertaining an audience. Unlike typical athletics and games, which are conducted for competition, sportsmanship, exercise or personal recreation, the primary product of sports entertainment is performance for an audience's benefit, thus they are never practiced privately. Commonly, the outcomes are predetermined; as this is an open secret, it is not considered to be match fixing.

Del Zotto has been rumored to be traded for a while now, and it wouldn't surprise me. I still don't get why Canuck fans want Del Zotto. He is decent on the power play, and average to terrible at everything else. A defense man, who always makes errors, isn't physical, doesn't have much speed, and can sometimes put up points when he is on the power play. I doubt he's more valuable than Stanton and/or Tanev. I hear people saying that Torts may want him back. Right..the same Torts, that benched him. AV's starting to bench him too. The Rangers will have to trade him eventually, until teams realize he isn't as good as advertised.

Would still want Callahan at deadline, think he'd be perfect. Here's a guy, Torts played a lot.

Edler and Hansen for Del Zotto and Callahan?

I could see is happen, pretty fair in terms of value and cap hits.

Point totals:

Del Zotto Edler
41...............49
21...............22
7..................9

Interesting how their point totals almost mirror each other in terms of decline.

Callahan Hansen
31............27
13............10

That said Edler is a far superior all around defenseman. Callahan is a step up from Hansen but probably not as much. I think I would make this deal if we were losing games but right now we are on the right track.

The players are very similar (offensive dmen, gritty top 6 forwards) but I think the swap may work better for both teams.

The Canucks have Hamhuis, Tanev, Bieksa, Garrison as a solid two-way top 4 but we lack a good puck mover on the powerplay. This is one area Del Zotto thrives in, and as long as he plays simple defensively, skates well and makes smart passes he would probably be fine playing 16-17 minutes per night on the bottom pair and move up to the top 4 with injuries.

Makes no sense. Del Zotto sucks. Keep Edler and Hansen. Rangers will figure out what they wanna do with Callahan, and if they decide to trade him, the Canucks are better off just paying for the rental at the deadline, with conditions that he re-signs.

If the Canucks really wanted to trade Edler. They should just wait until off season. People still undervalue him. He's worth a lot more around the league. I don't want him traded, and I doubt the Canucks trade him, but he's still valued at a top pair defense man. Wouldn't have to look hard to get a lot of value out of him. Del Zotto and a rental Callahan isn't enough.

now that is good depth, our bottom 2 lines could act as 3a and 3b depending on who is playing better.

They have a lot of rentals. I think Stepan, McDonagh, and Girardi are who I'd like. I'd add Callahan too but he's injured with ufa status.

Well, lets not go overboard here. Buffalo said the same thing, along with some other teams earlier this season. Just because they are available doesn't mean they will go all out fire sale.

Girardi is also a UFA a the end of the year, but he's struggling big time. The Canuck's don't need D, but if they do decide to trade one of the top 4, Girardi might be cheap, and Torts may have something to say about it since Torts loves Girardi.

Carl Hagelin or Derek Stepan please and thank you Dave.

Looks like Richards will be bought out at the end of the year, how does Sather have a job?

One 30 goal, 50 point season.

The rest pretty modest 20 goal, 40 point campaigns.

Even an idiot can see that's not what the Canucks need right now, he's a more physical Chris Higgins.
