Marty St. Louis era draws to a sad ending

He was always one of the smallest players on the ice.

How then can the departure of Marty St. Louis leave such a large hole?

The Lightning not only traded away the best player in its history Wednesday, it also traded away a good chunk of its heart and a pound of its soul.

It would take more than Callahan to land Kesler

Girardi’s agents and Rangers GM Glen Sather are not believed to be far apart on the numbers, reportedly around a six-year deal worth $5.5 million per season. Callahan, on the other hand, is believed to be seeking a seven-year contract for close to $7 million per season, both higher than Sather would prefer.

Rangers aim to keep focus with key players on block

Core Four charter members Dan Girardi and Ryan Callahan are both one day closer to the end of their respective Rangers careers than they were on Wednesday.

Rangers get no traction on Callahan-St. Louis swap: sources

Reigning Art Ross Trophy winner and Canadian gold medal winner Martin St. Louis’ name has been in and out of play with the Rangers since Jan. 7, when he was bypassed by Team Canada (and Tampa Bay) general manager Steve Yzerman for his country’s Olympic roster, but no trade is pending that would bring the 38-year-old winger to New York, sources have told The Post.

Buffalo is believed willing to meet Callahan’s asking price of a seven-year deal

Time is more an ally of the captain than of general manager Glen Sather. As a pending free agent, Callahan won’t be able to speak to all of the other 29 teams until June 25, so though he would likely prefer to take care of his business now, there is no urgency whatsoever for him to operate in a restricted market.

Could the Rangers and Blue Jackets make a deal

Trading Callahan to the Blue Jackets, with whom the Rangers are competing for a playoff spot and could conceivably meet in a cross-pollination first round, seems like a crazy idea, but the Blueshirts would sure have to think about it if Columbus would send 24-year-old Cam Atkinson, Chris Kreider’s Boston College Eagles teammate, to the Garden.

NHL trade rumors: Rangers interested in Blues forward Chris Stewart

 

Rangers shopping captain Ryan Callahan

One player whose name I would have never predicted to even possibly be in the mix before the season is that of New York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan.

But he’s a pending UFA July 1 and so far contract talks have not gone well at all, a source told ESPN.com Tuesday.

New York Rangers Taking Calls on Ryan Callahan

According to a source close to the situation, Ryan Callahan, the U.S.A Olympian and the captain of the Rangers could be calling a new city home for the remainder of the season. The reason? The team doesn’t feel he will be worth the salary — currently making $4.825-million with a cap hit of $4.275-million — he will likely demand as an unrestricted free agent over the summer, and Sather is hopeful that he will be able to get a decent return if he can trade him before the March 5 trade deadline.

Rangers Rumors

Would Sather deal Hagelin, 25 and with one more season on his contract at a $2.25 million cap hit leading into restricted free agency, for, say, Jets captain Andrew Ladd, 28 and with two more years on his deal at $4.4M cap hit leading into unrestricted free agency (and, it must be noted, a modified no-trade clause)?

Sather must decide: Is dealing Girardi best for Rangers?

Thus, how much more value as a trade chip, rather than as a first-pair defenseman, might Girardi bring to a Ranger organization that doesn’t appear close to a championship and all but certainly will have to undertake a significant reload over the next offseason or two?

It is, of course, impossible to answer the question blindly. Which means it is therefore incumbent for general manager Glen Sather to be in position to know with the March 5 trade deadline now less than two months away.

Leafs and Rangers have talked trade

The Maple Leafs have expressed previous interest in Del Zotto, but both Jake Gardiner and Cody Franson, the Toronto defensemen who’d been mentioned as potential parties of the other part, had dreadful games and do not excite the Rangeers as return in a potential trade.

Rangers can’t find a taker for Del Zotto

Whether this was the intention or not, the fact of the matter is Michael Del Zotto has become the Rangers’ whipping boy.

For the eighth time this season and the seventh time in the previous 22 games, Del Zotto was made a healthy scratch for Tuesday’s 2-1 shootout win over the Panthers at the BB&T Center. The former wunderkind defenseman has spoiled under new coach Alain Vigneault, and his future with the franchise has never looked more unstable.

Ottawa Senators not alone in pursuit of Del Zotto

The NHL trade freeze has been lifted and it is back to business as usual for Senators GM Bryan Murray and his other 29 counterparts.

While Murray has been working the phones heavily for the last month, he’ll step up his efforts to try to find a top six forward and puck-moving defenceman with the holiday ban officially over at 12:01 a.m. Friday.

Could the Leafs trade Gardiner to the Rangers?

Management has all but settled on dealing the erratic 23-year-old defenseman, who will play in his ninth straight game on Friday since sitting out the Dec. 7 match against the Devils in which Marc Staal was concussed.

Will The Rangers and Sens finally make a deal?
