Kotalik deal on hold...


                Been reporting this on Twitter as it has been breaking, but here tis...

                The evening began with news that forward Ales Kotalik, in the first season of a three-year, $9-miilon deal, did not accompany the team here from Phoenix and that a trade was coming. But a Rangers spokesman said before the game that complications arose in the tentative deal and Kotalik was sent to New York as negotiations continued. Kotalik, 31, who had been a healthy scratch for eight of the last nine games, had gone public with his displeasure several weeks ago, although both he and his agent denied that they had sought a trade.
