Interest in Demitra Renewed?

Last month, Bruce Garrioch noted that the Rangers were showing interest in forward Pavol Demitra. Of course, Demitra was injured, and it was just interest with no real backing. Now, with Demitra healthy and preparing to play both in the NHL and the Olympics, there is a solid chance that this rumor can come back to life.

The Rangers are in desperate need of secondary scoring, and Demitra is one of the only affordable options available to a team that is up against the cap. Demitra will be a UFA next season, and would be a prorated cap hit of $4 million (roughly $2 million at this point). He would definitely help on the second line, as the plethora of underachieving forwards look like they could use a spark, and Demitra could be that spark.

It would probably cost the Rangers a mid level prospect and a lower pick (4th round) to land Demitra, and probably some salary heading the other way (Higgins?). I wouldn’t be surprised if we see something done in the “buy” side of the trade deadline.

    It’s a good thing, because we were running a little low on soft Slovaks.

    Not a huge fan of Demitra but better than what we have.

      Demitra has been underrated. He’s never been given the kudos (much like Prospal) but he’s quietly put up really good numbers in his career. He’s fragile but if he comes cheap its definitely worth a shot. It could be another low risk high reward move, depending on what Vancouver want.
