NHL Rumors: Insider Links Timo Meier to NY Rangers

In a recent episode of Daily Faceoff Live, NHL insider Frank Seravalli reported that the New York Rangers have San Jose Sharks star forward Timo Meier on the top of their trade targets list.

The Rangers' primary goal is to add a top-six winger at the deadline, and Meier is easily one of the best options to provide them with just that. Although the Blueshirts have long been linked to Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane, Meier may be a more realistic option for them due to his more affordable cap hit. As a result, it makes sense that they are stepping up their efforts to bring him in.

The Rangers are aiming to show the NHL that they are a legitimate top-tier team, and bringing in Meier could be the final move that does just that. Let's see if the Rangers end up landing him from here.
