Oilers' Souray would accept trade to Rangers


Oilers defenseman Sheldon Souray has the Rangers on a list of six teams he would accept a trade to, according to TSN.ca.Souray, who has a no-trade clause, also would be willing to go to the Capitals, Flyers, Kings, Ducks or Stars, Darren Dreger writes.

Souray had surgery on a hand he injured fighting Flames captain Jarome Iginla on Saturday. He is expected to be ready to return in time for the playoffs.

Edmonton is last in the Western Conference.

Dreger says Oilers sources doubt a deal will be made before the NHL’s Olympics roster freeze on Feb. 12. The freeze ends Feb. 28, and the trade deadline is March 3.

    We dont want him…go somewhere else…

    Stay out of the fire and let the Oilers keep him cause our defense sucks as it is

    I'd actually rather the Rangers keep Redden and Rozsival than trade either one for Souray.  Well maybe I'd trade Redden for Souray just because he makes "only" $1.1 million more per year and has two years longer on his contract.  But as for overall play is concerned, Redden and Rozsival are better defencemen than Souray.

    This rumour makes so much sense. Seriously, when it comes to the Rangers, and paying big $ for "names", its pretty much anything goes.

    Also I was just thinking the other day, NYR don't have enough overpaid, underperforming d-men.
