ESPN New York "While the negotiations between Ryan Callahan and the New York Rangers are at a stalemate, making it appear increasingly likely that the 28-year-old captain may be traded, there has at least been consistent communication between the club and Dan Girardi's camp on forging a new agreement for the..."
