And now for something completely different…..
This is ludicrous: I personally don’t think the Rangers have the personnell to pull this one off. But when it comes to the Broadway blueshirts and Glen Sather you just never know.
Report: Rangers target Iginla
The New York Rangers may not be finished adding to their expensive payroll.
The New York Times quotes an NHL team official who says Rangers GM Glen Sather is interested in prying Jarome Iginla away from the Calgary Flames.
As TSN hockey insider Bob McKenzie first reported earlier this month, Flames GM Craig Button is not actively shopping Iginla but he is willing to consider all options. Iginla is scheduled to make more than $7-million next season.
However, the Flames would be interested in receiving established players with manageable salaries in return, something that the Rangers do not have in abundance.
Iginla has been hot of late, scoring 11 goals and 20 points since the start of the new year. He struggled through the first three months of the year with just nine goals and 22 points.
MY THOUGHT: Not gonna happen in a million years.
