Trade Deadline Day: All signs point to more Rangers deals
At 3PM today the Rangers have completed all their moves until the summer. The biggest names are still here. Will Ryan McDonagh be moved? Will Mats Zuccarello also be sent packing? These questions will be answered over the next few hours.
McDonagh On The Move
Rumors around the Rangers captain are the loudest. From McDonagh being seen last night leaving the team hotel in a cab and not being at the Garden for Ratelle Night, to the deletion of his twitter account, fans are frothing for info.
Folks, Ryan McDonagh has deleted his twitter account. Not even sure what to make of it, but it existed earlier.

However, as of this morning, Bob McKenzie is stating that there’s nothing going on with the Rangers Captain.
.@TSNBobMcKenzie on Ryan McDonagh: “My sense is that there’s nothing for the New York Rangers to consider right now, from the Toronto Maple Leafs or anyone else.”

Pretty odd to go from 5 teams to none in the matter of a day.
While there may be no noise this morning on any big moves, that could change quickly. I would still expect the Rangers to try and move David Desharnais before 3pm. Rangers could also move some of their AHL players or prospects to obtain more picks in the draft.
