Holik is one of the likely candidates to have his contract bought out, but has not been contacted by the Rangers, the NY Daily News reports.
Holik took a shot at the NHL and its owners in a recent interview, saying they "lie all the time", according to tsn.ca.
Holik incomprehensibly lost Ilya Kovalchuk, the most dangerous player in the league, at the side of the net on what became the winning goal in a 3-2 loss to the Thrashers, the NY Post reports.
Bobby Holik : Rotoworld.com - Bobby Holik Biography from Rotoworld.com (827 words)
Holik has played better of late, but with only 14 goals and 31 points on the year he has been a disappointment to both the Thrashers and his fantasy owners.
Holik, who hadn't played in two months because of a broken foot, was plus one in more than 14 minutes and won half of his 26 faceoffs.
Holik hopes to be back on the ice sometime next week, and is hopeful of a return for the Thrashers' final game before the Olympic break on February 11th.
