Andrew Gross reports that for the second game in a row, Columbus sent scouts to watch the Rangers last night against the Capitals.
I posted yesterday that reportedly Columbus is asking Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and a 1st round pick for Rick Nash.
…just because Columbus is obviously interested in making a deal with the Rangers doesn’t mean Sather is listening.
…Carter is a non-starter for me, but if Columbus is dangling Nash, Sather has to see how cheap he can get him for. If Sather can get Columbus to take Christian Thomas over Kreider I think the Rangers have to make the deal. Still concerned about his $7.8 million salary through 2018.
Gross adds that Montreal GM Pierre Gauthie and ex-Ducks coach Randy Carlyle, now scouting for Anaheim, where also in attendance.
The Wall Street Journal has more on what the Rangers might do at the deadline.
