Important development regarding Alexis Lafrenière and a potential New York Rangers deal

We reported in the last few days that things were not going well for Alexis Lafrenière at the moment, as he was left out of yesterday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It didn't take much to create a commotion on social networks, which at the same time fueled the rumors of a trade for him.

According to Ali Murji, the Rangers have received calls for a trade involving Lafreniere.

A promising young player who no longer seems to be in the future of his organization, barely three years after being selected at the very first pick of the 2020 draft.


The fact that the Quebecer is attracting a lot of attention is obviously an important development, as it indicates that he still has a high value on the market. However, the New York GM would not necessarily be willing to part with him at any cost at this point.

There seems to be a clear disconnect between the player and the coach right now. It could be more likely than ever that the Rangers' number 13 could become the price to pay, in order to make a big acquisition, by the trade deadline.

In fact, many rumors mention that he could be the centerpiece of a potential trade involving star player Patrick Kane.

This will be an interesting case to watch between now and March 3rd.
