Rangers may fall out of the Mike Reilly sweepstakes today
Mike Reilly has teams salivating for his services. After telling the Columbus Blue Jackets that he will test the free agent market, as many as 9 teams have tried to land his services. Today, his list will be narrowed to 3 or 4 teams and the Rangers could be on the outside looking in.
Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman said on a Calgary radio show that he will shrink the list today and highlighted two teams as leading candidates for the prized prospect.

Friedman speculates that the Blackhawks can point to their defense today to prove that he would have a legit chance of playing next season. Currently, Chicago is playing in the Final and heavily relying on 4 defenseman. Roszival and Timonen are no longer spring chickens so a changing of the guard is at hand.
