The NY Rangers may be on the verge of a fire-sale with an eye toward the future. Big names could be moved. When asked for comment, GM Gaffney offered up some vague but interesting comments, "The delay of the start of the season really hurt us in my opinion. If we were a couple months into the season, we would have a clearer picture of what direction we want to head in. We have not made any decisions at this point, but I will not rule anything out." Among players who could potentially be heading out of NY include superstar goaltender Tim Thomas, sniper Ilya Kovalchuk, center Marc Savard, winger Cory Stillman, as well as veteran defensemen Jaro Spacek, Craig Rivet, and Radek Martinek. Many of these players are on the final year of their contracts and are eligible to become unrestricted free agents in the summer. If they do start shipping out some veterans, the team would likely look to add young talent and draft picks to supplement former first round picks Colin Wilson and Michael Frolik and some other young players working their way up.
