They say when there is smoke, there is fire.
If that is a case, this rumor could be about to materialize any day now as there has been many infos leaking between a possible deal between the Montreal Canadiens and the New York Rangers, two struggling teams trying to get out of the East basement.
Last night, the Rangers had four top guys traveling to Ottawa instead of going back home and watched the Habs/Sens game. Senior staff including Glen Sather (President), Jim Schoenfeld (Assistant GM), Doug Risebrough (scout), and Gilles Leger (scout) that seemed to had their eyes on a specific player on the Canadiens roster to send so many top guys to the game.
According to two different reporters, Larry Brooks out of New York and Alain Sanscartier out of Ottawa, the player on the Rangers' radar would be 23-year old Alex Galchenyuk and they'd be willing to give up either forward Chris Kreider or Mats Zuccarello in order to make this hapen.
It'll be interesting to see if Marc Bergevin pulls the trigger on this one!
