RUMOR MILL

Tuesday - October 25th

Either Josh Jooris (New York Daily News) or Dylan McIlrath are likely to find themselves on waivers when Pavel Buchnevich returns from back spasms.

The team is expected to cut the roster down to 22 players, and as such one of the two will need to be either moved or sent down.

SO Far, Rangers NOT what they appear
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 11:50:32 AM - November 7, 2013

So far this season, when the Rangers look bad (on the western trip to start the season) they look BAD, and when they look good they look really good, like they have lately and especially against the Penguins last night.  Of course alot has to do with injuries on the Rangers and their opposition, but injuries are part of the game and all teams have to deal with them. For the first time in many years, it would seem that the Rangers actually have the depth to survive injuries and still put a winning team on the ice despite their injuries. The Rangers are alot like Benoit Pouliot's season where he has won a game with a goal and a great assist in an all out effort and then can't be found on the ice the next game.

The season started with Captain Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin coming off of shoulder surgeries and rehabbing and Derek Stepan finally signing his contract after a brief holdout. They were out west for the preseason because of the final stage of the transformation of the Worlds Most Famous Arena. The Rangers have a new head coach and assistants and a new system. Is that enough poor excuses? These people are all professionals and need to deal with whatever is put in front of them and make it work for the best. Does it take time to heal injuries physically and mentally? Sure. Does it take time to learn a new system and deal with new players? Sure.  Does it give the team an excuse for such terrible play to start the season? Not in any way!  Players that did not excel under the Rangers last coach John Tortorell, such as Brad Richards and Chris Kreider have seemed to have found love for the game under new bench coach AV.  The Rangers get players Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin back but lose Rick Nash and send down veterans Darroll Powe and Aaron Asham to the minors to make room for J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider. The Rangers have also brought up Brandon Mashinter to replace the role of Arron Asham in the fighting department and he has challenged players when the need was there. In the past, a Rangers team would look for excuses when a top flight player was injured, but not over the last few years. This core group plays with speed, pride, and for each other. Now that they seem to be adjusting to the new coaches system, the talent level is finally being seen.

This version of the Rangers is still not a finished product by any means. Rick Nash is still out and may be out for at least a month and could use a player to fill the role as a top level scorer.  The Rangers have rumors of trades all over websites and a name that is at the center of most is Michael Del Zotto.  MDZ and John Moore are pretty much the same player and both are the 3rd pairing. Dealing one of these two would open a spot for the likes of Justin Falk, Aaron Johnson, or Dylan McIlrath (who by reports coming out of the Hartford area has stepped up his game as of late).  Derrick Brasard could easily be moved as he is a Restricted Free Agent next season and would cost the Rangers around $4 million to just qualify him. 

The Rangers have a few main players that will be Restricted or Unrestricted free agents at years end and G.M. Glen Sather needs to know what his priorities are and start trying to sign the players the Rangers Organization want to keep in January when next years Cap estimations come out. The Cap is supposed to go up over $6 million next year, so it gives the Rangers alot of options. When engaging next years free agent players and trying to get a good idea if the Rangers will be able to sign a player BEFORE the trade deadline would let the Rangers know if they have a real shot in the player in the Rangers future or if they should be moved for players or picks so that the Rangers don't lose a player for nothing unless they feel that the player can take the Rangers on a legit chance for the Stanley Cup! First on the program for the G.M. would be is to keep Brad Richards of take the organizations 2nd and last amnesty buyout on him and free up another $6.666 a year cap hit.  It would seem that deals for Henrik Lundqvist, Dan Girardi, Ryan Callahan, and Chris Kreider would be priorities. The decisions on Brian Boyle, Derick Brassard, Mats Zuccarello, Anton Stralman, and John Moore would be up in the air. The rest of the players on the NHL roster that are up for renewal should only be brought back for minimal are Taylor Pyatt, Dominic Moore, Benoit Pouliot, and Justin Falk.
