The Rangers, who go into tonight's game here against the Oilers and assistant coach Tom Renney having scored five goals while losing three of their last four in regulation, are in desperate need of a playmaking center, of that there is no question.
The questions, however, are, a) whether Forsberg is healthy enough to compete in the NHL following a series of surgeries on his right foot and ankle; and, b) whether the center has interest in coming to New York.
"Well," said Sather in response to the latter, "I'd have to say a lot of that would probably depend on money."
The Blueshirts have a scant $700K available so they'd have to shift some things around to make it work. Forsberg is currently in Sweden prepping for the Karjala Cup this weekend. The Rangers would also have to contend with Forsberg's current team, Ak Bars Kazan, who could and probably would match any offer.
Keep an eye on Blueshirt Banter for updates as they happen.
