Rangers Want Jagr To Stay

According to the New York Daily News, the Rangers want Jaromir Jagr to stay at least another year. Larry Brooks goes on to say in the Post that the point of negotiation will be determining what the Rangers expect from Jagr, and whether Jagr will agree to that.

Brooks also writes that the Rangers are one of a select few teams that have been given the opportunity to talk to impending UFA defenseman Brian Campbell. The former Sabre, and current Shark is said to want to return to the Eastern Conference, and the Rangers would be a team he’d consider.

Sean Avery looks all but done as a Ranger. He’s now just over a week away from free agency, and the Rangers are not expected to make an offer.

The Journal News wraps up yesterday’s draft in which the Rangers added two more defensemen and four forwards to go with defenseman Michael Del Zotto.

Picked in the sixth round, Mitch Gaulton was happy to have been drafted at all, after missing all but twenty games this last season with an elbow injury.

Given the choice between two of his favorite targets, Larry Brooks has come out on the side of Rangers’ owner Jim Dolan, calling NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman¬†despotic¬†in terms of his reign as the head of the NHL.
