The eagerly anticipated TSN Trade Bait list for the offseason was released today. Oddly enough, not a single member of the New York Rangers was on it. That is a bit shocking considering the number of rumors surrounding Henrik Lundqvist, Pavel Buchnevich, and Tony DeAngelo.

Jacques Martin on joining the New York Rangers
In a new feature on NHL.com, Jess Isner relayed some interesting quotes from new assistant coach, Jacques Martin.
- “When you look at the direction of of the National Hockey League, it’s obvious that a lot of teams are getting younger, a lot of teams are getting faster. I think we fit right into that new trend, and I think it’s our responsibility as a coaching staff to bring as much information as possible to the players, bring a structure and a system that’s going to bring us some success and make sure that we play with the details that are necessary to win hockey games.”
- “Having the opportunity to work with those young guys on a daily basis, whether it’s on the ice or off the ice, doing some video, preparing them for for every game – it’s a challenge that I’m looking forward to.”
- “My background is in teaching. I love to be able to teach the players. At the same time, part of it is to recognize what their strengths are and identify what areas they need to improve and make sure that they play within their strengths and keep working on the areas that they need to be better – working on their confidence or working on their technical skills as defensemen.”
