New York Rangers set Olympic deadline for Callahan trade

Published Add your comment

The New York Rangers are looking to trade their captain, Ryan Callahan before the end of the week but are unlikely to do business according to the New York Post.

Callahan will be a free agent this summer but the New York Rangers are keen to trade their team captain in order to get something back for the 28 year-old.

Larry Brooks wrote in the New York Post that Rangers general manager, Glen Sather would like to trade Callahan before NHL rosters are frozen for the Olympics on Friday.

Sather wants to avoid Callahan getting injured during Olympic duty for the USA and then able to leave in the summer.

Callahan has scored 21 points for the Rangers this season and there are a number of teams interested in obtaining the services of the USA star.

The Buffalo Sabres are rumored to be lining up a bid of $42 million over seven years once Callahan hits free agency but are not prepared to surrender any assets in a trade at this time.

Despite a supposed interest in trade-partners, it would seem unlikely that a deal will get done by Friday with other teams not prepared to adhere to Sather's deadline.

The Rangers next play tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden against the Colorado Avalanche.
