08:24 AM ET 07.09 | Perhaps the Rangers' energies are being misdirected. Shea Weber is the player for whom you pay the bounty the Blue Jackets are demanding but won't get in exchange for Rick Nash. Weber is not yet 27 and universally regarded as a franchise player who plays the right defense position. ... The Rangers have all sorts of players quarantined in their bid for Nash, and well they should. But for Weber, an intimidating physical force at 6-foot-4, 235 pounds who was on ice for more power-play goals scored than any other player in the league, the list would be as short as this: 1. Henrik Lundqvist (redundant anyway with Nashville owning Pekka Rinne); 2. Ryan McDonagh; 3. Ryan Callahan; 4. Dan Girardi; 5. Chris Kreider.

By the way, another pointless, speculative, 'trying to make stuff up" piece from our friends at The New York Post

Hes not on the list because he has a NMC. Same as Gabby.

Rangers throwing the sink, weather they really want him or just dont want the Flyers to get him, either way I see him as a Flyer with the Preds getting a boatload in return...

I wasn't aware there were a lot of Indian players on the Rangers.

Rangers' sink is pretty rusty and has a few leaks.

Maybe they're willing to cut Kevin Costner and Andy Garcia to get him??

some say the best team money can mumbai

Let's say this trash is remotely true. The Rangers wouldn't trade anyone from #2-#5 for Weber? Dan Girardi would be a reason to hold up a trade for Weber. Talking about the best dman in the game. Who else on the Rangers would people even want except for the couple they listed up there?

Let's hope they have some good Lucknow or Glen Sather will start wearing Kashmere sweaters from now on. That will be Jalalabad for the image of the NHL!
