NHLTR: Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers discussing deal

The state of New York is an underrated hockey market, and it looks like a couple of state rivals have been in contact with each other about swapping some players. The Sabres and the Rangers have been in touch regarding Rangers forward, Chris Kreider.

The 28-year-old Kreider is set to become an unrestricted free agent at years' end, and currently sits with 13 points in 26 games. He does have a modified no-trade clause in his contract, which he submits a list of 11 teams to his GM before the season. No word yet if Buffalo is on his list.

The Sabres would be willing to a top-end prospect in the deal, if Kreider is willing to sign an extension upon arrival.

The Sabres have also been trying to move RHD Colin Miller, as the free agent pickup has not been working as planned. Look for a deal between the Rangers and Sabres to potentially expand into something bigger if the two GM's can agree on the foundation of the deal.
