Rangers Interested in Brassard? (Updated)

Update, 10:15 a.m.:
Forgot to add that Brassard, the 6th overall pick in 2006 by Columbus, is making $3.2 million per until 2014.

Original Post:
Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that the Rangers, among other teams, are looking at Columbus C Derick Brassard who recently ruffled feathers when his agent Allan Walsh sent out a statement Thursday calling out coach Scott Arniel and demanding a trade.

The 24-year-old Brassard has 2g, 2a and is a -10 this season after a career best 17g, 30a last year.

…assuming Sather has kicked the tires on Brassard (wouldn’t be doing his job if he didn’t, right?) but no way he’s looking to make any personnel changes with how well this team is playing. And do the Rangers really need another center right now?
