From Larry Brooks in today's NY Post:
No, he will not be first on the Rangers' wish list -- "Gee, we wish we had drafted Zach Parise; gee, we wish we hadn't given Scott Gomez, Chris Drury and Wade Redden all that money; gee, we wish we had traded for Billy Guerin instead of Nik Antropov -- but when July 1 rolls around, impending free agent Mike Knuble will emerge as a person of significant interest.
And the interest is likely to be mutual.
For those of you that have forgotten, or may not know, Mike Knuble spent a few years with the Rangers early in his career, but he was hardly the goal scorer he turned into in Philly He had 24 goals in 2 seasons with the Blueshirts before he was traded to Boston, and it wasn't until his 3rd season with the Bruins that he really caught fire, becoming a perennial 25+ goal scorer.
So, should Mike Knuble be someone on the Rangers radar?
Should the Rangers pursue Mike Knuble when free agency starts?
Yes, he would be a big help (56 votes)
