2/24/14: 4:33PM: On Team 1040 in Vancouver earlier today, Darren Dreger spoke about Ryan Callahan and the Marty St. Louis situation.
On the Marty St. Louis situation, Dreger said “I know the Rangers thought it was amusing, the speculation and rumor about St. Louis for Ryan Callahan. I can assure you that if that deal was ever proposed that the Rangers would make it instantly.”
On Ryan Callahan, Dreger said, “Ryan Callahan is on the trade block and that is not a news flash. We talked about that prior to the roster freeze and there were no contract talks that would lead me to believe that anything is going to change. Callahan is going to go into auction and you will have teams like Tampa Bay perhaps, perhaps the LA Kings kicking tires to see what the rate of return is going to be but we may not know what the rate of return is going to be until trade deadline day.”
