There have been a number of rumors involving the Rangers this season but nothing concrete as of yet.
That did not prevent ESPN insider Pierre Lebrun from making a bold prediction today during a radio interview, one where he stated plainly that he expects the Rangers to make a trade this season that will help their defensive situation.
I think at some point the New York Rangers will do everything they can to trade for a Top-4 defenseman, or get some help on defennse, between now & trade deadline, said Lebrun.
The Rangers have been connected to a variety of rumors, primarily those out of Anaheim involving veteran defenseman Cam Fowler, but there's been nothing concrete on that front, and Lebrun did not go into specifics.
More to come on this front to be sure.
