He's more trustworthy league wide though. And the name every ranger fan is coming down too, is Ruutuu. Makes the most sense. According to what Boomer said that is.

And whoever his source is, he had to be pissed. He's here playing guessing games on Twitter and driving fans all over the place... Actually interesting to watch.

McKenzie has to cover the entire league, and not just the Rags. And he's a reporter, not so much an insider. They're always the last ones to break this kind of news. Esiason is a legit insider. He has resources that TSN doesn't have.

LOL, yeah this trade makes sense for either team. They're both going to be playoff teams in the same conference trading assets on this level with one another. Norman Esiason needs to think about that some more.

McKenzie's source are GM'S. Boomer is very close with Dolan. So there is something brewing in the Big Apple and he's turning it into a guessing game and trolling it lol.

You also have to understand TSN has everything to lose if they report something, and they're wrong.  They're gonna wait until it's confirmed before reporting something.

Boomer's clues are all pointing to MSL.  Just sayin'.

Their reporters are the most trusted and talk with GM's every other day. Boomer said his source, 9 out of 10 for trustworthiness, is a 9. If his source if Sather or Dolan it would be a 10, no?

Exactly why I said he's playing games. It makes no sense, even with the tension between Steve and him. I doubt Steve spent the Olympic break doing deals back and fourth, even so, Marty is really close with Cooper. And why mess up that legendary talent alongside Stamkos going into the playoffs. Makes no sense..

Esiason should stick to what he's good at: Losing Superbowls.

Also I think his reputation as a "hockey guy" is overblown. Yeah he watches it and talks about it on the show, but since he is pretty much the only guy on that station that acknowledges the sport actually exists on a daily basis he gets that reputation as the "hockey guy."

This is the same guy who earlier in the year after a devils/rangers game where the rags lost was ranting how they could lose to the devils who are "so far behind them in the standings." This is when the devils were only 1 or 3 points behind.

I'll believe it when I see it but I wouldn't put him down as a credible source.

This trade doesn't really make any sense, nor do iterations of it.  The Rangers would have to put something else significant into the deal (an excellent young player, like Krieder maybe), and why would they do that?  And Tampa has loads of good young forwards so I don't think they have much of an interest there.  Doesn't add up at all.

Larry Brooks just confirmed that there has been talk between Tampa and NY
Reigning Art Ross Trophy winner and Canadian gold medal winner Martin St. Louis’ name has been in and out of play with the Rangers since Jan. 7, when he was bypassed by Team Canada (and Tampa Bay) general manager Steve Yzerman for his country’s Olympic roster, but no trade is pending that would bring the 38-year-old winger to New York, sources have told The Post.

Blueshirts’ general manager Glen Sather has inquired about a potential swap of team captains in which pending free agent Ryan Callahan would go to the Lightning in exchange for St. Louis, but Yzerman’s absolute lack of interest in dealing his leading scorer in exchange for a rental property has been made clear to the Rangers.

St. Louis did ask for a trade from Tampa apparently.

Not to NY though, as you see, Steve doesn't want RC

Why is it so inconceivable that Boomer - a guy who has a TON of local connections - could have a source on a Ranger trade ahead of the national guys that don't have those kind of relationships with the local team?  Or that someone wouldn't leak it to him first precisely because he's a high-profile fan.  It's not like he's Spike Lee where he's just a famous fan, he's actually in the media.

 

If anything Brooks confirmed there've at least been discussions to that end, although my regard for St. Louis would be lessened a bit if he did indeed want out just because he got bypassed by his GM for Team Canada.

Yes but he could always be re-signed.  And plus, it wouldn't be a 1 for 1 swap obviously.

Boomer is pretty well-connected, I could see him getting the heads up on a Ranger trade from someone for sure. There's definitely smoke, with Brooks now chiming in on the matter.

NK and TheFourthPeriod came in. St Louis, is not going to NYR. He wanted a trade before the snub, not no more. And Steve won't trade him.

And Mike doesn't matter, RC won't budge on seven years seven million, Steve won't take that.

Nowhere does it say MSL said he no longer wants to be traded.

It's believed St.Louis did ask #Lightning 4 trade when left off Canada. I'm told some #NHL clubs not sure if he still feels the same way now
