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 definitely not the consistent toughness. ...it's really a shame what's happened to Boyle this year. He seemed to finally be coming into his own in the playoffs last year, then boom, he takes a hard hit from Chris Neil and he hasn't been the same since. ...he's a big body who could really make a difference if he'd just go to the front of the net and mix it up every once in a while. His faceoff prowess, makes him that much more integral. In other trade news, Brooks says there is essentially no league-wide trade chatter regarding Marian Gaborik. ...got to assume Gaborik's $7.5 million per year salary is the major deterrent here. You know, other than his just two goals in the last 22 games. ...the one thing, however, that has to make Rangers fans at least a little positive about Gaborik is that he's at least getting chances. If he wasn't creating offensive opportunities then I'd be concerned, but he's too gifted for his shots to not start finding the back of the net soon.
