05:20 AM ET 01.23 | Where are the Rangers going to get the power forward they so obviously lack and so desperately need in order to be more than a one-and-done playoff team with so comparatively little to spend? You know who would look good on Scott Gomez's right side? Billy Guerin. That's who would look good driving to the net and planting himself in front of the power play. But Guerin, the Islander captain who has a no-move clause and is unlikely to waive it if asked to leave the surrounding area, is in the final year of a contract under which he's earning $4.5M. As such, the Rangers not only don't have space for him now, but unless the GM begins attending to the cap immediately, the Rangers won't have space at the deadline to add the 38-year-old winger whose 14 power-play points (4-10) would lead the Blueshirts and who is a Glen Sather favorite from their years together in Edmonton.
