We do know that the Rangers and DeAngelo haven’t begun true negotiations. That isn’t much of a surprise since the Rangers don’t usually begin with their RFAs until after free agency opens. However this now makes the second rumor regarding a potential trade. This comes just two days after Philly was speculated as a potential destination.
You all know the saying. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. The Rangers have a delicate, but not critical, cap situation next year. This is what is fueling both the DeAngelo rumors and the Strome rumors. It would make sense that Vegas is targeting Tony DeAngelo, there’s a need and a fit. Just need to dump cap space first.
