Rangers check in on Jets players
TheFourthPeriod.com

The New York Rangers appear to be back on the right track, but that hasn't stopped GM Glen Sather from doing his job.

Sather has been actively pursuing several options, as TFP reported last week, and continue to work the phones in an attempt to improve his hockey club.

In addition to figuring out what steps to take with pending unrestricted free agents Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi, Sather has been looking to add a top-six forward and a mobile defenseman for some time.

According to a source close to the situation, the Rangers have spoken with the Winnipeg Jets about their forwards.

It's believed the Rangers are interested in acquiring one of Evander Kane, Blake Wheeler or Andrew Ladd from the Jets, who are open to offers, but would require a significant package in order to part with any of those players.

The Jets have been scouting the Rangers lately, with one representative checking in Sunday night's game against the Washington Capitals.

Ladd and Wheeler each own limited no-trade clauses in their contracts, while Kane is not as protected.

If the Jets part with any of those three forwards, they would require NHL-proven talent heading back their way, which would require the Rangers to include at least one of their young roster players as part of a package.
