Eklund at HockeyBuzz has this quote from Darren Drager at TSN on why the Rangers didn't get Mats Sundin...
"Mats and JP Barry gave the Rangers EVERY opportunity to get the number up, but the Rangers couldn't get it over 5. and the lowest offer that came in per year was 7.5."
Eklund adds that the ESPN rumor stating the Rangers would trade Michal Rozsival to the Dallas Stars for Sean Avery was very much real but the Stars pulled out.
Finally Eklund says that with the Rangers not signing Sundin they will be looking at Jay Bouwmeester and Marian Gaborik.
...just when I thought Eklund was going to have an intelligent post he says the Rangers will be looking to go after two more high priced players. If the Rangers didn't have the cap room for Sundin how are they going to get it for Bouwmeester or Gaborik. Unless Sather can somehow trade either Rozsival or Redden for them.
