Ben Kuzma at the Vancouver Province reports that the Rangers are willing to match the four-year, $30 million offer the Buffalo Sabres have made to Shane Doan.Doan has said he will choose a team before the September 15th NHL lockout deadline....Kuzma gives no source for this rumor, so I'm not sure what to think....if true Sather has officially fallen off the wagon.
