Is JT Miller still an option for the Rangers?

12:39PM: Pierre LeBrun mentions the Rangers as one of the “suitors” for JT Miller and says that Miller could move this week or at the trade deadline this year. (The Athletic)

9:49AM: At Sportsnet, Elliotte Friedman wrote about JT Miller and said “whether it’s the Rangers or Washington or someone else, the Canucks will aim higher than Minnesota’s return for Fiala and should get it for J.T. Miller.” (Sportsnet)

The Wild traded Fiala to LA last week for a first round pick in Thursday’s draft and 2020 second round pick Brock Faber.

Jeff Marek said on 32 Thoughts “just from the outside, it very much looks like this is sizing up, if they are going to do a deal that it’s either going to be with the Washington Capitals or the New York Rangers.”
