The latest buzz around the New York Rangers.

UFA Frenzy: Erik Karlsson

Elliotte Friedman’s latest podcast dived into the Rangers going after Artemi Panarin this summer. However, it didn’t stop there as he waded into dangerous waters.

“One of the more interesting stories now is going to be Erik Karlsson,” continued Friedman. “You know, I wonder if he could become a Ranger target. When he’s played this year, he’s been dynamite. You’re wondering about the injuries and I think he’s doing the best thing he can, is sitting out until he gets healthy – don’t risk it. But I wonder about the Rangers and Karlsson, how interested they’re going to be. I could see him loving playing there.”

Here’s my take, the Rangers could really use help on defense but Karlsson’s age, injury history, and contract demands make this a tough one. If the Rangers were to miss out on adding Artemi Panarin then I can see making a run a Karlsson.
