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.

 Projected Forwards - First Line
Chris Kreider Derek Stepan Rick Nash
We projected this line to start the season last year, but Chris Kreider ended up getting sent down.  This time around it seems likely that these three will be fronting up as the Rangers' "top" line, with all three set to improve on last year's numbers.

Starting on the left, will be Chris Kreider.  The young left winger bounced back after he failed to back up his stunning entry into the NHL playoffs with regular season success.  Last year with 17 goals in 63 games, and would be expected to break the 20 goal mark for the first time in his career.

In the center, Derek Stepan will be in camp on time after missing the start last year due to contract issues.  The 24 year old Minnesotan did set a career high of 57 points last year, but was well off the pace of the lockout shortened season where he had 44 points in 48 games.  A full camp should help him get off to a better start.

Rounding out the line will be Rick Nash, who is coming off a sub-par playoff performance where he recorded just 3 goals in 24 games, and matched his career low in points - 39, which he set back in 2002-03 during his rookie season.  Nash did suffer a concussion early on in the season, and Rangers faithful will be hoping that that was the cause for his lackluster performance.
 Projected Forwards - Second Line
Carl Hagelin Derrick Brassard Martin St. Louis
The Rangers second line will be a bit of mystery going into camp, although on paper this looks like the most likely combination.  With Brad Richards having been bought out in the off-season, Derrick Brassard will move up to the second line center position.

The 27 year old center set a career high of 18 goals during the regular season last year, centering Mats Zuccarello and Benoit Pouliot for much of the year.  His 45 points, were two short of his career high, and he ended up with another 12 points - 6G, 6A, in the playoffs.  It'll be a step up for Brassard, who'll be called upon to increase his offensive output, especially with the speedy Carl Hagelin and veteran Martin St. Louis on his wings.

As for Hagelin, he returns to camp healthy this year, after missing the start of last season following off-season surgery on a troublesome shoulder.  The fast skating Swede ended up scoring a career high 17 goals - in his third season, and would be another possible candidate for 20 goals this year, although that will be hard without powerplay time.

On the other side, 39 year old Martin St. Louis took some time to adjust to playing with the Rangers, scoring in his 14th game with the team, and finishing with just one goal in 19 regular season games.  He did turn it up in the playoffs though, with 8 goals, just two short of his career high set in 2010-11 with the Lightning.

 Projected Forwards - Third Line
Kevin Hayes J.T. Miller Mats Zuccarello
Is J.T. Miller ready to step up and be a center?  The Rangers will be hoping so, after showing moments of promise amid an up and down season.  Miller will likely get pushed hard by veteran Dominic Moore, European returnee Matthew Lombardi, and rookie Oscar Lindberg, but his offensive potential could see him get the not over the others.  The key will be whether he has matured on and off the ice, and whether Lombardi can show an offensive touch after playing in Switzerland last season.

On the right side, Mats Zuccarello will find himself again playing on the third line.  The Norwegian born winger really came of age last year, after a strong playoff performance in 2013.  He could see some time on the top two lines if any of the other falter - or are injured, but looks most like to start the year anchoring the third.

The biggest battle looks likely to be who lines up on the left wing spot.  It's possible they could bring in right winger Lee Stempniak and move either he or Zuccarello to the left, or they could go with aging Ryan Malone, a late summer signing.  While Stempniak and Malone appear to be "safe" albeit middling options, we think Kevin Hayes might surprise and snatch a spot ahead of the two.

It'll take a big camp by the UFA rookie to push past the two veterans, but if there's a spot to be had, this appears the most likely.  Jesper Fast may also get a look in here, though we're expecting him to be a late camp cut, along with the intriguing Anthony Duclair.
 Projected Forwards - Fourth Line
Tanner Glass Dominic Moore Lee Stempniak
Dominic Moore returned to the NHL last season after a one year hiatus following the death of his wife, and proved a useful commodity to the team that drafted him.  The likeable veteran signed up for two more years, and looks set to earn either a third or fourth line spot out of camp.

Pairing up with Moore will likely be veteran players, and we're projecting Tanner Glass and Lee Stempniak as being the likely options, although Ryan Malone could win either position.  Glass provides some PK ability too, and is a familiar face to the Rangers coaching staff, and will likely get the benefit of the doubt to start the year unless he has an awful camp.

Malone and Stempniak will be battling out for the final forward spot if Hayes, Lombardi or Lindberg seriously enter the mix.
 Projected Forwards: Reserves
Ryan Malone Matthew Lombardi
There are a number of permutations on the second through third lines, but Malone and Lombardi look to be the two forwards most likely battling for the reserve spots, if in fact the Rangers do decide to carry two spare forwards.  The remaining forwards seem likely to be sent down, if for no other reason than to protect the Rangers depth.

 Projected Defense - 1st Pair
Ryan McDonagh Dan Girardi
No change on the top defensive pair, with Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi looking set for a third straight year going into camp.  Only an injury would see these two being broken up at this stage.
 Projected Defense - 2nd Pair
Marc Staal Dan Boyle
Marc Staal enters the last year of his contract, and will become a UFA unless the Rangers can figure something out.  If he gets off to a good start, expect a contract extension in January, when his raise won't impact the 2014-15 season.  Another injury, or a drop in form could see him moved or simply allowed to walk.  No doubt where he'll be to start the year though.

Joining Staal will be 38 year old free agent Dan Boyle.  The former Shark rejoins team mate Martin St, Louis in a bid to help a Rangers power play that still has struggled despite a coaching change.  Boyle will be seen to be the answer to that problem, though it remains to be seen how effective he can be this late in his career, and his defense will certainly be examined closely.
 Projected Defense - 3rd Pair
John Moore Kevin Klein
John Moore has the distinction to be the last RFA to sign this summer, but with the announcement of an agreement last week, the Rangers will go into camp without any contract concerns for a change.  Joining Moore will be Kevin Klein, who joined the team mid-season last year following a trade of Michael Del Zotto to the Nashville Predators.

The pair played together last year with mixed results, and will both be looking to step up their performances knowing that they are likely to be the third pairing to start the year.
 Projected Defense - Reserves
Matt Hunwick
If the Rangers elect to keep a veteran defender up on the roster - which seems likely - it would appears Matt Hunwick is the most likely option.  Glen Sather did sign a number of options on borderline NHL defenders over the off-season, and also has prospects Connor Allen and Dylan McIlrath in the mix, but they will likely start the year in the minors, and will serve as call-ups in case of the inevitable injuries.

 Projected Goaltending
Henrik Lundqvist Cam Talbot
Henrik Lundqvist will lead the Rangers in the net, and it'll be Cam Talbot the projected backup.  Talbot opened some eyes in camp last year, and ultimately took away the backup spot from Martin Biron, who retired after a slow start to the season.

Free agent signing Cedric Desjardins appears to be heading to Hartford, with Jason Missiaen and Jeff Malcolm likely battling out for the second spot.  Brandon Halverson and Mackenzie Skapski will return to their respective CHL teams.
