Captain Callahan asked for a raise and they showed him a trade clause. Will this cause unease in the locker room? If the Capt is up for sale who isn't? And doesn't it show a strong message that the management doesn't want to keep this group together and a dismantling isn't far away? Could be why all the "experts" are on the Avs. I remember it wasn't long ago this team was given the best odds at a cup (on paper,before the season started). I thought with the new player friendly coach they might make a run this year as a last ditch effort before Nash and Lundqvist expires. Could also be that Callahan is just a bad Capt. I mean how does he figure he'a worth 6.5+ for 7yrs with his numbers. Half a mil a goal? I doubt it bud. And how would they sign anyone else for him to play with Did he really think he would get it or is it just a different way of saying he wants out? I'm on the fence on this one myself. I like the Rags catching the Avs tired after a tight game with NJ last night but I've seen the Rangers when the sh/t-hits-the-fan and it ain't pretty. This isn't a rally around your captain thing either it's more of a my captain is a greedy prick who thinks he should make double what I do.  Anyone follow the Rangers got any good info on weather or not this will effect team chemistry and players attitudes? Is Callahan going to start playing hard to try to earn those dollars or will he sulk it out and give a lack luster effort? BOLTA

The Rangers play this game after having three days off. So they should be well rested.

'Given the best odds at a cup'  - Rangers are not a small market team; they get more media attention than other teams only due to the fact they play in New York. They have pieces that could potentially turn into having a shot at it. There are some other team at other sports that come into mind when I think of overrated big market sports teams. They have proven nothing yet to show for it.

There's also talk that the trade talk is just part of the contract negotiations because the Rangers don't want Callahan to think he has all the leverage. Tough one to call. Avs saved Varlamov for tonight so they must have looked ahead to this game and planned for it if they chose to put Giggi vs Schneider. Rangers and Lundqvist have been great on home ice recently. Think I might just take the Under 5.5

Yesterday's game under 5 vs a New Jersey Devils team was decent. Tonight it's the Rangers. Valamov should start for in the net, that's almost for sure. Hope there won't be a firework in the first period. Colorado can score 2-3 goals in the first when the Rangers come out rust off the three days. I consider to take the under 5.5 but I am not 100% to take it yet.

The Avalanache did not have a morning skate at Madison Square Garden so there were no updates on the status of Alex Tanguay and Paul Statsny. Both are questionable for tonight (source: Adrian Dater, The Denver Post)

Tanguay will not play but Statsny will participate in the pre-game and might play after that.
