Chris Stewart Trade Rumors: Rangers And Ryan Callahan In Play?

New, comments

TSN's Darren Dreger tweeted this out of the blue today, and it certainly goes hand in hand with what fans have been seeing from Stewart recently.

Could Captain Cally be headed to the Blues?

Our own Robb Tufts' article on why we need to start worrying about Chris Stewart went a little viral Tuesday, with mentions from Craig Custance and Norm Sanders. I'm guessing that no one in New York saw it, because Darren Dreger tweeted this earlier today:

Not sure who "Western Conference teams" are, but it's Dreger. He doesn't just make stuff out of thin air. He's responsible with reporting rumors - even if they don't pan out you can be certain he heard of the possibility from a very legitimate source.

The Rangers' captain, who has spent his entire career with the team, has 9 goals and 11 assists this season, and is a -1. In contrast, Stewart has 15 goals, 10 assists, and is a +7 after a bit of a slow start. He's currently cooled off significantly and hasn't shown much on the ice as of late, but is it bad enough that Doug Armstrong views him as a liability despite his offensive numbers? Could Ryan Callahan get better in St. Louis?
