Rangers Roundup: Hank honors Richter and Hayes to Minnesota?

Latest Rangers buzz around the web.

1994!

The 25th Anniversary celebration is just around the corner and Henrik Lundqvist just tweeted the helmet he’s wearing for the game.

Dreger on Hayes

Hockey Insider Darren Dreger just dropped this tidbit on a sports radio broadcast.

“So about 10 minutes ago – I checked in on Kevin Hayes and the New York Rangers, just to see where that’s at,” indicated Dreger. “Because he’s a pretty important piece to the New York Rangers. That deal might come right down to the end. Have a conversation with Hayes. Find out what he wants to do. Does he want to push for a playoff run, and ultimately the Stanley Cup as a rental, and then perhaps sign back with the New York Rangers. Kevin Hayes, to me, should be a player that Minnesota or a team like Winnipeg should be looking at. I mean, just everything he brings, I think he’d fit nicely in that conference.”

The asking price right now for Hayes starts with a first round pick. As of today, Winnipeg is 3rd overall in the NHL and Minnesota is 17th. Obviously, it would be better to go for the Wild’s 1st round selection.
