Elliotte Friedman at CBC Sports reports that the Rangers are believed to be big Curtis Glencross (Flames) fans.
The 30-year old Glencross has 14g, 8a this season and is on the books for $2.55 million per till 2015.
...Glencross can definitely add a little jam to go with some goal scoring and at $2.55 million isn't all that expensive. But recent rumors had the Flames asking for goaltender Ben Bishop from the Senators in return, so the demands will likely be a young NHL ready player as they look to rebuild after trading away Iginla and Bouwmeester.
...other than Kreider and Miller, who aren't going anywhere, I'm not sure Rangers have many of those right now. Not sure who else the Flames would be interested in. Thomas?
Meanwhile, Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that there is considerable interest in Brian Boyle.
Brooks adds that despite a miserable season, Boyle has the size coveted by Cup contenders.
...he might have the size, but de...

When I read this morning’s article in the Ottawa Sun which indicated the Senators had expressed interest in Calgary Flames forward Curtis Glencross, I was hardly surprised.
Slated to earn $2.55 million through the 2014/15 season, Glencross is a rarity on the Flames’ roster – a marketable commodity who is actually: a) cost-effective; b) at a relatively decent age; and c...

We’ve spent a lot of time talking about how the Rangers, as currently constructed, are not a team that is rich with depth.

The issue of depth is easy to address, but that won’t matter if the star players on the Rangers...
Not much was expected from a Columbus Blue Jackets team that suffered through one of its worst seasons in its history in 2011-12, traded its franchise cornerstone in the offseason and were the worst team in the league in late February.

Ryane Clowe and Derek Brassard: Welcome to New York. Brian Boyle: Welcome back. These three led the Rangers in the complete dismantling of the Penguins tonight, scoring a powerplay goal and at least three points each, and four of the Rangers first five goals en route to a 6-1 win. Boyle and Brassard had a goal and three assists each, and Clowe scored two (his first two of the season...
from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
There has been no edge and no resolve from the Rangers, who don’t even resemble distant cousins from last year’s Black-and-Blueshirts who spit out nails and pucks on their way to storming to the East’s regular season championship before being stopped in the conference finals.
The team that led the NHL with 65 fighting majors last season...
