Rangers Deadline Moves

The Rangers need to make a move before the trade deadline.

They need a defenseman or an elite scorer. Marian Hossa (right wing on the Thrashers), Ed Jovanovski (defenseman on the Coyotes), Brian Campbell (defenseman on the Sabres) and Dan Boyle (defenseman on the Lightning) are names that I have heard associated with possible trades to the Rangers.

Whoever they trade for, they have to sign to a long-term deal since they would have the cap space needed with the expiring contracts of Jaromir Jagr, Martin Straka, Brendan Shanahan, and Michal Rozsival.

I would prefer the Rangers to get Brian Campbell. He is a very good quarterback on the power play- something the Rangers have not had since Brian Leetch.

I wouldn't mind the Rangers trading Al Montoya, Nigel Dawes, and a draft pick.
