Reports Tuesday that the New York Rangers placed Eric Lindros on waivers in preparation for buying out his contract turned out to be false, but the team is apparently trying to find a way to get him out of town.

During the announcement that he'd remain as head coach of the Rangers, general manager Glen Sather denied refuted a reports by Canadian sports network TSN.

"The reports that I heard were that he was on waivers and that report was totally incorrect -- like a lot of reports that come out of Canada," Sather said. "Am I going to put him on waivers? No."
