The New York Rangers were expected to be among the teams fighting for the top seed in the Eastern Conference this season, but through 31 games, they now find themselves in an intense battle just to make the playoffs.

Sunday's shootout loss to the Washington Capitals kept the Rangers in eighth place in the East standings with a one-point lead over the ninth-place Carolina Hurricanes and two points ahead of the Capitals.

General Manager Glen Sather has several needs and weaknesses to address before the April 3 trade deadline, including:

  • Scoring depth
  • A veteran winger with grit and offensive skill for the third line
  • A top-four defenseman
  • A powerplay quarterback

With a limited amount of salary cap space for this season and next year, Sather does not have a ton of flexibility, but he does have some valuable trade assets to dangle in the market.

Let's recap all the latest trade rumors and speculation involving the Rangers leading up to the deadline, and be sure to check back to this article on a daily basis for the latest news and reports.
