Buzz: Boomer Esiason indicates that something is going to happen and it could be big

2/24/14: 8:30AM: Esiason confirms that he has been tweeting about a straight up trade of Marty St. Louis for Ryan Callahan.

2/22/14: 10:09PM:

Esiason then fielded questions on twitter about what he tweeted and indicated the following things:

2/23/14:8:04AM: Esiason answered more questions this morning.

9:47AM: Boomer continued to answer questions

7:16PM: Boomer has again started answering questions.

7:24PM: On 2/21 at 7:15, Esiason tweeted “Marty, Marty , Marty in a good way? Hard to believe.”  This, as the clues have ruled out other players, seem to indicate that he is talking about Marty St. Louis.

10:09PM:

  • His feeling is that Ryan Callahan will be traded
  • His feeling is that only one of Callahan and Girardi will be traded
  • “if it goes through it will be nuts around here.”
  • He thinks that Pitt will acquire Chris Stewart
  • The team is in the East
  • It’s 90% and works for both teams
  • Could be a 1 for 1 trade with potentially a conditional draft pick
  • It’s a forward
  • His sense is that fans would not be happy initially
  • Callahan will be going as a rental player
  • The trade doesn’t involve Stepan, Nash, Staal or Lundqvist
  • The deal makes the Rangers look like both sellers and buyers
  • It is not Callahan for Stewart
  • It is not for Matt Moulson
  • He has “major” respect for the player coming back
  • It is not Colorado
  • It is not for Brandon Dubinsky

8:04AM:

9:47AM:

10:18AM:

10:53AM:

  • Boomer thinks that this player will play on Thursday for the Rangers

7:16PM:

I said it before and I'll say it again., BOOMER is a CLOWN! He knows nothing! Why would anyone give him this inside info? HIM and CARTON CLOWNS with no make up!

I don't think it's MSL. "A deal no-one saw coming"? MSL talks have been mentioned since the beginning of January.

By elimination...

Well Boomer was right about one thing. Chris Stewart was traded to Pittsburgh. But that was a deal between the Yankees and Pirates earlier in Dec....lol

He said he would address it on the show tomorrow "if Carton would let him talk about hockey" Maybe he is just trying to prove people do care about hockey and put an end to the "No one cares about hockey Boomer" recording once and for all!

If he really knew something how would the Rangers feel about him discussing it all day?

Either that or as someone said on twitter, maybe Carton got a hold of his twitter account!

Larry Brooks claims that Yzerman has St Louis off the table in any trade talks. Is Boomer just trolling us or is he on to something?

People keep tweeting guesses when they obviously haven't read all his tweets on the subject.People,an Eastern Conference player that played in Sochi and will cause Ranger fans to chant "Marty" in a good way(and not Erat)?Has to be St Louis.

If this is true, I wouldn't mind MSL or Tuomo Ruutu

I couldn't see how Tampabay would trade their leading scorer and point getter in the thick of the playoff race but Boomer did say it was business. Tampa has $52 tied up in SalaryCap next year on 15 players, not counting RFA's they may want to sign. This leaves $18m, based on $70M estimated 2014-15 salary cap to sign 10 players. Trading away St Louis frees up $5.6 million and Cally still makes Tampa competitive.

My money is on MSL

I hope its not for St Louis and would be opposed to this trade due to his age. You cannot trade your heart and soul captain for a 38 year old. Either get younger talent or an equivalent guy in age who can contribute.

French Canadians are known for their highly emotional nature.  MSL must have really raked Stevie Y over the coals regarding the original Olympic snub.  He  and Richards clicked a decade ago, assuming it will work now is a stretch.  There are so many more compelling deals out there that might require a little more creativity with a far greater potential upside.  This is a typical Ranger dog and pony show.

From Boomer's twitter:

"Reunited-peaches and herb..."  #tradedeadline"

 Sounds like MSL is the rumored name. The possibility of he and Richards reuniting and the hashtag #tradedeadline lends itself to that theory.

I still think Montreal will give us Paccioretty, Subban and Gallagher for Cally. They love making stupid trades with us lol.

Is St Louis signed thru next year? What is the cap hit? Will Dorsett and Carcillo both play??

I don't see the Rangers making a deal with a team they're currently competing with.  I think Ottawa has already written off this season.  The Flyers would be nuts to trade Voracek for a rental.  Makes no sense.  He's 6'2", 24 years old and has 40 pts.  Why would they do that?

I doubt Booms would troll us, he's a die hard & a season ticket holder. Maybe just premature information. Maybe Larry Brooks is wrong. That has happened before

New coach, new structure. Cally would be amazing to remain a Ranger but his asking price is way too high. It's really up to him to whether or not he stays in Broadway Blue.

@Macacawitz  Listen Islander fan, St. Louis is a ppg player this year. As for next year? I don't know, I don't see him putting up worse than 50 points, and maybe he even has another ppg year, and it would cost us an expiring contract -- and after new year St. Louis would be off the books. This would be a fantastic deal.

@Macacawitz  i agree. seen crazier things happen from them though. just throwing out a scenario that seems to fit the mold.

boomer also said ranger fans will enjoy doing Marty chants... meaning for St. Louis

@Daniel DHizzy Hizgilov  Voracek sounds like he fits the mold actually but havent heard his name tossed around at all. He is also signed untill 2016, but I don't think i would mind that move.

They would still be reunited for the rest of the season. All clues point to MSL like it or not.
