RUMOR MILL

Thursday - December 5th

Per Elliot Friedman of Sportsnet:

Prior to the December 1st deadline, the Oikers apparently tried again to move Jesse Pujljujarvi, and the Rangers were reportedly one of the teams interested.

The trade would have involved Lias Andersson going the other way, but ultimately they could work out a deal.

The Rookie Line
Posted by Daniel Akeson ≡ - September 14, 2007

Nigel Dawes. Alex Bourret. Brandon Dubinsky. You may not have heard of them, but they are the future of New York Rangers hockey and at this year's training camp, have formed an impressive line. While the group seems to be the only rookies really in a position to make a move this year, there may not be a spot for them.

Before the season, there was heavy speculation that a rookie would be able to fill a spot in either the third or fourth line at center. However, there has been an emergence by Ryan Callahan at that position. If that is the case, the lines thus far have been as follows:
Jagr - Gomez - Hossa
Avery - Drury - Shanahan
Straka - Callahan - Prucha
Orr - Betts - Hollweg

Where would a rookie fall? Where it at first seemed that Dubinsky was a front-runner to make the team, it now appears that Bourret or Dawes has a better chance in a rotating fourth line position.

That, however, brings about further debate. Is a rookie better served in a 50 game capacity with limited ice-time in the NHL, or a full season with heavy ice-time in the AHL?

That debate will rage on forever, but at the same time would a smallish forward such as Dawes be suited for a fourth line checking role? The Rangers have a good problem in that there is a lot of forward talent with so few spots available.

This could also come in handy if the Rangers decide to finally trade for a top defenseman.
