Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun gives his five possible destinations for Dany Heatley with the Rangers being one...
2. New York Rangers
GM Glen Sather likes to stick his nose into everything and this is where Heatley really wants to go. The Rangers refused to give up D Marc Staal and C Brandon Dubinsky at the draft for Heatley. They’d have to offer C Chris Drury, but Sather is loath to deal his captain. “The Rangers love players with star power and they could find a way to take on Heatley’s $7.5-million salary. Sather is the type of GM who doesn’t let players like Heatley get away,” said a league executive. With more than $6 million in cap room, the Rangers wouldn’t have to move much.
...it's hard to take any rumors involving the Rangers seriously as they're mentioned in almost every one b/c of Sather's willingness to overpay.
...i'm no cap expert, but I thought the Rangers had a lot less than $6 million available. If anyone knows, please post in comments.
...sorry for the late posts, I had my fantasy football draft today.
