Whispers that #NYRangers have spoken to #LAKings about Marian Gaborik
— Dennis Bernstein (@DennisTFP) March 20, 2013
Bernstein adds that the Rangers had two scouts at the Kings/Coyotes game last night.
...with the Rangers not playing the Western Conference this season, you have to assume they were scouting players for a potential trade.
...despite being a former Flyer as well as Dubinsky's nemesis, wouldn't mind seeing Mike Richards wearing a Blueshirt. I think he'd be a perfect fit for this team. Having said that, you all know I'm against trading Gaborik and I think he's slowly showing signs of breaking out of his funk. Would hate to trade a 40-goal scorer just as he's ready to breakout.
...also Richards is under contract until 2016 at $6.8 million per year, so doubt it's happening.
...Rob Scuderi could be someone the Rangers have their eye on as a rental. Final year of his contract with Stanley Cup pedigree.
