07:55 AM ET 12.23 | Will Rangers fans wind up with the New Year's gift of a new player or two -- or three? Nobody has been described as more desperate to make a deal than the New York Rangers. ... [That could mean] a trade not long after the roster freeze is lifted at 12:01 a.m., Dec. 28. League executives say Rangers GM Glen Sather has been working the phones trying to move several players -- including blueliners Michael Del Zotto and Dan Girardi -- in an attempt to try get his struggling club on track. While Del Zotto has been the one the club has shopped heavily, the Rangers also need to sign Girardi, a UFA on July 1, so they may be starting to see what they can get in case they can't sign him. The Senators have shown interest in Del Zotto because GM Bryan Murray would like to get a puck-mover.

Is the Ottawa Sun akin to the NY POST? could we have an idea what they suppose he's looking for? And what they think he can get for these 2?
And I think moving Girardi would be a mistake

In Canada, the Sun does not shine bright! Ottawa, Toronto, or Edmonton (others?). They're all rags. Anyone getting their news (sports or otherwise) from these tabloids deserve what they get - craaap!

Spiny, you can relax and enjoy your Christmas! Nothing will happen this year as there is a freeze on trades till after the holidays.

The Toronto Sun printed this non-story yesterday. I guess the Ottawa Sun simply copy pasted it as ground breaking Sun News for today.

Fishwrap!

I have to say though, I am more worried about Sather in the off-season than trade deals

Girardi is exposed under AV's man-to-man system. Since the beginning of the year he has been terrible. Great shot blocker and great zone coverage kinda guy under Torts-a-fella but he is exposed. Gotta move him.

What's with the bold type?

My bad. Well, not really I posted something bold and this has shown up on two threads. :-(

Hard to believe from this finely tuned website.

I cant see it. Hopefully it is the lovely lass you rocked last time.

Dont expect much, AV's team comes out flat almost all of the time.
