Rangers a Possible Destination for Souray

630AM in Edmonton is reporting that a Sheldon Souray trade from the Oilers is imminent and that the Rangers are a possible destination.

Souray who is coming off a broken hand injury that ended his season last year, has two years left on his contract that would pay him $5.4 million per year.

...i think the Souray to Rangers rumor is the one I am the most sick of hearing about. This rumor has been floating around since January. Unless Redden is headed back to Edmonton not sure how this makes sense for the Rangers.

Souray for Redden would be like trading STDs.

That could be the comment of the year.

'tis true... but at least you get a taste of something a little different.

STD - Sloppy Tired Defenseman

Souray would at least give us point production & shot on the pp.

I can't see how Souray could be worse than Redden and his cap hit is less for fewer years. Don't know if the Oilers and Renney would want him though.

at least he hits.

That's what I'm saying, ry-man: "He can hit," and unloading Redden would be a miracle. I'm not really tired of this rumor because I'd like to have a big body to keep the crease clear, and Souray could do that. We don't really need another offensive defenseman, do we? You can count Del Zotto, Gilroy if he gets comfortable, and Staal has some offense developing. I didn't think our D was strong enough last year and I don't mind taking on a stay at home guy.
We'll see . . .

... that said, I'll take secondary scoring wherever we can get it. Maybe Souray is still effective in a shootout too ...

If its not a straight trade - it won't happen. In order for this trade to go through, a high draft pick or an excellent prospect has to be involved. If its a choice to keep Redden or lose his butt and a excellent prospect as well- I say no.

Not sure if anyone caught it last year, but during these rumors towards the end of the season, Ken Danyko was asked about Souray on MSG. He flat out said that he cares nothing about winning and only money. This is a guy that played with him. I don't care if he hits like a truck, keep him away. Last thing the Rangers need is that kind of influence on the young D!
