Sooooo it hasn't exactly been the most exciting 24 hours leading up to the 2012 NHL Trade Deadline, but with the clock ticking down as we near closer to the 3 p.m. mark, trades will be made - they always are. However, in both the Eastern and Western Conferences, very few teams are out of playoff contention right now, and they are hesitant when it comes to letting go of marquee players because of that. I think it's likely that we see a few general managers loosen up as they day goes on and the phone calls pour in, but I'm not counting on as active of a day as we've seen in years past.
As for the New York Rangers, news broke last night that GM Glen Sather was removing his club from the Rick Nash sweepstakes unless Columbus GM Scott Howson elects to lower the asking price for the top-notch power forward. It is believed that the Jackets are still seeking one of Michael Del Zotto or Ryan McDonagh, or maybe even perhaps college prospect Chris Kreider, despite the Ran...

New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired defenseman John Scott from Chicago in exchange for a fifth round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Scott, 29, has skated in 140 career regular season contests in four seasons with Minnesota and Chicago, registering one goal and [...]
Let’s be real here, there is a significant chance that Glen Sather and the brain trust that surrounds him decide to not make any moves at the deadline. If that is the case, then the Rangers are going to look to the CT Whale to provide some depth in case of an injury.
As the Rangers already have a spare defenseman, there are two types of injuries for the Rangers that would require...
There's a reason why sometimes listening to what is not said is more important than listening to what is said especially when it comes to New York Rangers. Nobody took me seriously when I said I was taking Monday off because I knew there was going to be some very disappointed people at 3:01 PM Eastern time.
The moment people started throwing the names of the Ranger's...
During Glen Sather's post trade deadline press conference he said this about the Rangers depth at forward (via the Daily News)..."We're fine with it, and we have kids in the minors as well. And we have some other people that are gonna probably turn pro at the end of the school year."...whoever could Sather be talking about? Assuming not 2007 draft pick Danny Hobbs...
When it comes to Glen Sather, the Rangers GM has never been afraid to acquire big-name players in his 11 seasons in New York. With the trade deadline finally upon us, Sather once again has an opportunity to acquire a superstar. This time, it comes in the form of Columbus Blue Jackets franchise player Rick Nash.While there is no doubting Nash's talent and his ability to produce...
Corey Masisak at NHL.com says the Rangers stockpile of talented prospects has been very beneficial during the trade deadline..."Why have the Rangers been at the forefront of the discussions about a potential Rick Nash trade? Because the Rangers have built up a nice cache of young, impact talent to the point where dealing a couple or few quality young players and prospects won...
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired a third round selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft and defenseman Michael Vernace from Florida in exchange for forward Wojtek Wolski.

The situation can change before the 3 p.m. trade deadline if Rangers general manager Glen Sather unexpectedly changes course and yields to Columbus’ demands for Rick Nash, but it does not appear as if Nash will be Broadway-bound before the Devils come to the Garden tonight for the latest...
from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, Maybe Scott Howson read the standings upside down. Maybe the Blue Jackets general manager thought his team was first overall in the NHL rather than 30th, and maybe he thought the Rangers were last instead of first in the Eastern Conference and first in the league in points-per-game.
Perhaps that explains why Howson acted with a sense of entitlement...
It appears that the 2012 NHL Trade Deadline has come and gone for the New York Rangers, with the team having acquired defenseman John Scott from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick.
So now, the Blueshirts will go forward with the team they currently have as team general manager Glen Sather and team head coach John Tortorella are showing that they believe...
Rangers general manager Glen Sather had conversations with the Jackets about trading for superstar winger Rick Nash, but no deal was consummated because Sather didn't want to "dismantle" his team.

There is no doubt that Glen Sather lusted to bring Rick Nash to New York, but when the Rangers’ general manager stuck to his guns in resisting Columbus’ demands that the package in return would have to include either Ryan McDonagh or Michael Del Zotto plus either Derek Stepan or...
Instead of throwing down players, prospects and picks for Blue Jackets captain Rick Nash before a 2-0 win over the Devils Monday night, Rangers GM Glen Sather made one simple deal at the NHL trade deadline for a versatile 6-8 defenseman who drops the gloves.
