KEVIN KLEIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers In No Rush To Trade Kevin Klein

In Elliotte Friedman’s final column of the summer, there’s was a mention regarding Kevin Klein and how apt the Rangers were to moving him out for increased cap space…. “I’ve heard they’ve been asked about Kevin Klein, but don’t want to go that route.
