Buzz: No Fedor Tyutin and @MichaelDelZotto Trade Was Discussed

Update: 2:41PM:

Pierre LeBrun, in a chat at writes that Del Zotto is not a candidate to be moved by the Rangers according to a source.

Original Post:

According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, Rangers GM Glen Sather inquired about former Rangers defenseman Fedor Tyutin when he was scratched last week.

Also, The Blue Jackets inquired about the situation of Michael Del Zotto when he was scratched recently.

Portzline says that no trade was discussed, “just 2 GMs sniffing”

Yesterday in the Edmonton Journal, Jim Matheson wrote that Columbus inquired about Michael Del Zotto.

….Well that ends that speculation though it was unlikely anything would develop from that. This is what GM’s do, they sniff around when talented players are scratched or sent down. It was reported that 29 teams called Garth Snow when the Isles sent down Josh Bailey even though the Isles have no intention of moving him.
