He says that they could look at guys like Ray Whitney (40), Shane Doan (35), Ryan Smyth (36) or Jochen Hecht (35) to fill that need.
Adam Rotter: I was very interested in the Rangers looking at Smyth at the trade deadline the new contract he was supposed to get hasn’t been signed yet. Whitney wants to stay in Phoenix, as does Doan, but the ownership issues could drive them to find new teams. Doan would fit right in with the Rangers and he knows John Tortorella from when he was an assistant in Phoenix. The Rangers did have interest in Whitney at the deadline.
