RUMOR MILL

Friday - September 16th

Multiple sources New York Post, Lohud and New York Newsday confirmed today that Nils Lundkvist will not report for Training Camp and has asked for a Trade.

In comments (comments ) yesterday, GM Chris Drury said he wasn't sure whether Lundkvist would report, but that has been thoroughly clarified today with Lundkvist's agent Claude Lemieux making their position clear.

The loss of Lundkvist likely impacts the depth options for the team, and is the third example in the last four years of a former first round pick falling out with team management.

Thursday - September 15th - 2022

It sounds like the Rangers will not bring in a veteran defenseman to compete on a PTO for Training Camp per Arthur Staple on Twitter. Earlier in the week, Staple had mentioned that the Rangers were looking into it, but per The Athletic reporter, it appears they might wait to see how camp goes, and potentially look at the waiver wire as an option.



Tuesday - September 13th - 2022

A few minor updates from Vince Mercogliano Lohud including that the Rangers have been trying to trade Julien Gauthier for much of the offseason.

Gauthier has largely been the odd one out, and reportedly asked for a trade at some point after failing to cement a spot in the line-up. As of yet there's no takers apparently.

Also worth noting, though this might be his own perspective, and that is he doesn't believe Jimmy Vesey will make the starting line-up over the likes of Dryden Hunt, Ryan Carpenter and Ryan Reaves.



Wednesday - September 7th - 2022

Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports that there's a good chance Nils Lundkvist will stay in Sweden unless he's traded, foregoing a chance to attend training camp in New York. The decision comes after a reported trade request that dates back to March last year.

Lundkvist initially won a spot on the roster to start last year, but was passed during the year by Braden Schneider after failing to impress. If Lundkvist does not attend camp this year, it doesn't necessarily mean he's finished as a Ranger, but it's hard to see the team making a trade before the deadline when his value would be higher for team's looking to unload veterans.



Saturday - August 6th - 2022

Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports that the Rangers are looking to bring back former forward Jimmy Vesey on a one-year league minimum deal. Vesey notably signed as a UFA after declining offers from Nashville and Buffalo at the conclusion of his college career, joining the Rangers for a three years before being traded to Buffalo.



Wednesday - July 20th - 2022

It appears Matthew Tkachuk could be leaving Calgary soon, with the 24 year old forward being taken to salary arbitration by his club. Tkachuk would reportedly be interested in a US city, and it's thought the New York Rangers would be one of his preferred destinations.

The chances of that desire being realized though, are very low indeed. With the Rangers having signed Vincent Trocheck to a seven year deal last week, and with contracts coming due to Alexis Lafreniere, K'Andre Miller, Zac Jones, Vitali Kravtsov and Filip Chytil next season, it's hard to see how the Rangers could add yet another big name on a long term contract.

In order to clear $10 million in Cap space to account for Tkachuk, the Rangers are somewhat restricted by the NMCs the've handed out to Mika Zibanejad, Chris Kreider, Jacob Trouba, Artemi Panarin, and more recently, Vincent Trocheck.

The five players account for around $40M in Cap space, with untouchable players Adam Fox and Igor Shesterkin added an additional $15M or so.

The only way this would work is if they somehow also got one of that group, like Panarin, Trouba or Kreider, to waive their NMC to go to Calgary, which seems highly unlikely given they all set career marks here last year and seem well settled in New York.

In addition, the Rangers would likely have to deal additional players like Kakko, Chytil and perhaps a guy like Lundkvist, which perhaps could be overcome by the addition and the remaining depth in the organization.

Without the headliner going the other way though, it seems unlikely that this type of move would be possible.



Thursday - July 14th - 2022

Chris Drury expressed in yesterday's first day of free agency wrap up that he is not worried about getting a deal done with Kaapo Kakko. With Patrik Nemeth's contract no longer on the books, Drury has cleared himself around 2.5 million of Cap room give or take, depending on how many players the team carries through the season.

Prior to the deadline, there were reports out that the framework for a deal had been hammered out, so it remains to be seen what a final deal might look like.

At this stage it does not look like the Rangers have the room to make any additional moves, and any additions would likely involve trading away a player. Filip Chytil and Kaapo Kakko would seemingly be the players that would fit that scenario if it were to develop, but it's hard to see what type of move would spur that sort of transaction.

The Rangers at this stage do look like they'll go into the season with an unanswered question on the third line left defense position, so that could certainly be an area that they look at.



Wednesday - July 6th - 2022

Rumors of the day are that the Rangers are once again looking at J.T. Miller, though it's unclear whether there's more than one source for this, with Jeff Marek mentioning it on his 32 Thoughts Podcast with Elliot Friedman.

The rumor sounds very familiar to the language used in this report in The Province, which covers the Canucks.

While it's certainly not out of the realm of possibility, it would be a substantial cost for a player who'll likely just get one season in New York before becoming a UFA next Summer.



Friday - July 1st - 2022

Ryan Strome, Andrew Copp and Frank Vatrano will all head to free agency per Larry Brooks in the New York Post today. It's not really surprising considering what we've heard to date, but a confirmation of sorts nonetheless.

While the Rangers did try to work out an extension with Strome last season, it looks like the gap is just too great, and so he'll leave after three seasons that often saw his name come up in rumors.

As for Copp, he could be looking for as much as 56M a year, which would probably be too rich for the Rangers given what he brings to the club, and that money could probably be spent on a more dynamic player.

Vatrano's departure is likewise, not unsurprising. While he was a good contributor to the line-up, the Rangers oversupply of wingers as well as his relative cost (probably in the $3M-$4M range for multiple years) wouldn't have made sense.

Both Arthur Staple The Athletic and Vince Mercogliano Lohud explored options the Rangers might consider.



Wednesday - June 29th - 2022

While we wait to see what the Rangers do at Center, it looks like there might be interest in 24 year old Jet center Pierre Luc Dubois. The report coming via a tweet from the French language RDS service and specifically Francois Gagnon

Traded a couple of years back from Columbus to Winnipeg, the impending RFA (with arbitration rights) has reportedly told the Jets he does not want to remain a Jet beyond his RFA status.

The cost would likely be expensive for the Rangers, and would put additional salary pressure on the Rangers over the next couple of seasons.
