NHL Free Agency Rumors 2012: New York Rangers Interested In Keeping Martin Biron

The New York Rangers are interested in keeping Martin Biron as their backup goalie, Biron's agent, Peter Fish, told the New York Post on Monday.

"We have had several positive discussions with the Rangers that are hopefully headed in the right direction, because Marty's first choice is to remain in New York," Biron's agent, Peter Fish, told The Post yesterday. "The Rangers have made it clear that they want to keep him, but there is still some work to be done."

Biron was strong during the 2011-12 season as Henrik Lundqvist's backup, finishing the year 12-6-2 with a 2.46 goals-against average in 20 starts. It's obvious why the Rangers want to keep the 34-year old, but they will likely have plenty of competition for his services, as several teams can use a solid backup netminder. The Philadelphia Flyers are one of the teams expected to show interest.
