Update: 10:30AM: Pat Leonard writes in the Daily News that Mara's agent says that the Rangers are just one of the teams that his client is talking to.
Update: 9:47AM: Larry Brooks says in the NY Post that the Rangers have re-initiated talks with former Ranger Paul Mara.
The Rangers expressed interest in Mara before training camp.
Original Post: 10:25AM: The Rangers have been in search of defensive help since the beginning of training camp and John Tortorella said yesterday that they are looking for depth and not necessarily an impact player:
"If anyone thinks we're getting a guy who can step into our top four, they're dreaming,"They seem to want a veteran defenseman that likely won't be making much more than $1.5 million at the most. Paul Mara is out there but I think that they will take a look at who is placed on waivers today as teams need to get their rosters in order. Whatever they do it is incredibly unlikely that they will board a flight to Sweden and play this weekend. It makes more sense to have them practice a week in NY after the team returns and go from there.
