NHL Rumors: Rangers Interested In Flames Center

According to Arthur Staple, the Rangers have had trade talks with the Flames regarding Sean Monahan.

This may be surprising to some. Monahan just had the second hip surgery of his career and is coming off of a down year. In 65 games, he scored eight goals and recorded 23 points. However, perhaps GM Chris Drury believes that he can find his previous form. Keep in mind, this is a player who is still only 27 years old and had 82 points in 78 games only a few years ago.

Any Monahan deal would force the Flames to retain salary. Furthermore, given his down year and injury trouble, it wouldn't cost much of anything to acquire him. Let's see if something comes from these reported trade talks.
