Marian Gaborik trade rumors seem to be the en vogue subject to report these days and Larry Brooks at the New York Post has jumped right in confirming that the Rangers are looking to move the sniper by the April 3rd trade deadline. ...i've commented about that ad nauseam, so all I'll say is this, one of the biggest problems with the team is chemistry. There is a lack of cohesiveness and trust on this team. These guys are just not willing to go to battle for each other. We have seen time and again Rangers players not sticking up for one another. Hard work, dedication and a willing to win can absolutely overcome talent in the NHL. This team needs to find a way to gel as well as a shot confidence. And I just don't see how trading a guy who has been in the trenches with this team fixes this. Torts needs to work on building this team up, not waiting on Sather to ship out a piece that has proven able to fit in the Rangers system for one that might not. In other Rangers trade rumors, Steve Zipay at Newsday notes that Rangers scouts have been in Columbus, possibly looking at C Derick Brassard, who carries a $3.2 million per year contract until summer of 2014. ...while the Rangers are in need of depth, especially in the bottom six, how could they justify bringing in a guy at that salary who hasn't come close to cracking 20 goals in a season? Sather has already thrown away $3.5 million on Hamrlik, I'd hate to see him do it again. ...plus, if the Rangers are going to make a trade for a center from Columbus there are two guys I think Rangers fans would rather see them acquire.
