Rangers Rumors

2/23/16: 3:54PM: Pierre LeBrun thinks that the Rangers will look to add a third or fourth liner "at the very least." He said that he isn't sure about a move for the top-six but adds that getting Rick Nash back will have the impact of acquiring a scoring forward. (ESPN)

2/17/16: 8:56PM: On NBCSN, Bob McKenzie said the Rangers are looking at "lower level" players.

McKenzie said, "The Rangers have mortgaged their future in past years, they haven't had a first round pick in each of the last drafts because they have traded them away as part of an attempt to try and win the Stanley Cup. They don't have their first round pick coming up in this draft."

Scott Burnside writes that the assumption is that the Rangers will shop Keith Yandle after giving up a "king's ransom" for him last year at the trade deadline. (ESPN.com)

Burnside said that Yandle hasn't been a good fit and won't be a fit with the Rangers in terms of the salary cap after this season when he can become a UFA. (ESPN.com)

He also thinks that some help up front could be of use to the Rangers and mentions Eric Staal, though he does note it would be hard to see the Rangers go after a rental player at this stage. (ESPN.com)

Erik Erlendsson lists the Rangers as one of eight teams that could try to acquire Steven Stamkos if Tampa Bay decides to move him before the 2/29 trade deadline. (TBO.com)

Erlendsson puts four teams (St. Louis, Vancouver, Detroit and Toronto) as teams that could possibly acquire Stamkos and sign him long-term and four teams (Rangers, Montreal, Wild, Tampe keeping him) that could acquire Stamkos in a bid to win the Stanley Cup. (TBO.com)

He notes that the Rangers need more scoring to get past Washington and adding Stamkos would make the Rangers deeper and more formidable against the Caps. (TBO.com)

On TSN1040 earlier today, Pierre LeBrun was asked about the slide the Rangers are currently on. (TSN1040, via Nichols)

LeBrun said, "I'm surprised, I gotta be honest. They have never really shown these types of cracks. I didn't think they would struggle to this degree at any point this year."

He added, "in particular, and it's the easy thing to look at, but Henrik Lundqvist has struggled. It's surprising and it underlines the fact that I think they are going to have to look at their team and see if there is something they can do before the trade deadline."
