One name to watch today is Martin St. Louis and it appears the New York Rangers are still interested.
Sportsnet’s John Shannon reports the Rangers have an offer in on St. Louis and says it’s up to GM Steve Yzerman and St. Louis if anything is going to happen there.
When talk arose originally about St. Louis wanting out of Tampa Bay, the Rangers were believed to be the main team interested in him and the feeling is mutual from the Lightning captain.

According to the New York Posts’ Larry Brooks, the Lightning are asking for “young guys with Callahan” for St. Louis. Probably won’t happen as it’s a high bargain.
Not quite stepping out on limb here but told it could go either way with Callahan. Tampa asking for young guys with Callahan for StLouis.
