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.

Georgiev and newly acquired Marek Mazenec were sent to Hartford today

Changes keep coming slowly
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 2:55:46 PM - December 6, 2017

The Rangers came out to start this season looking nothing like the team that has been competing for the playoffs. Most of the team was the same except for the trade of Stepan/ Raanta and the buyout of Girardi. Kevin Shattenkirk took a hometown discount to come to the Rangers. David Desharnais and Ondrej Pavelic were brought in to fill needed holes of depth over the summer. Since the season started, General Manager Jeff Gorton has made 3 depth changes that provide the Rangers with NHL experience for when injuries occur as Ryan Sproul (24 years old 6-4" 211 lbs) was traded for Matt Puempel (who last year was claimed off of waivers), Peter Holland ( 26 years old 6-2" 200 lbs) was traded for Adam Cracknell who was picked off of waivers this year and didn't work out after a few games try and then sent to AHL Hartford. Yesterday, G.M. Gorton signed free agent goalie Marek Mazanec (24 years old 6-4" 190 lbs) and he is also assigned to Hartford with yesterdays NHL backup goalie Alexander Georgiev which means that Henrik Lundqvist will be able to play or at least backup for Friday's gave against the Capitals. 

After a terrible start that had everyone thinking a trade was coming or a coaching change, the  team has righted it's play and are now within striking range of a wild card playoff spot. The Rangers got hot with captain Ryan McDonagh out with an abdominal injury and with Mika Zibanejad out with a concussion. Boo Nieves has come up from Hartford and supplied the speed and size needed for the 4th line and is doing a solid job on faceoffs. David Desharnais has provided the Rangers a stop gap center that has been up and down the lineup. This Rangers team has a far way to still go to become a solid playoff contender, but there is a better feel around Rangerland these days.

This wouldn't be the worst season to tank because this summer there is ALOT of talent in the NHL Draft!  On Defense there are gamechangers in Rasmus Dahlin (6-2" 181 lbs), Adam Boqvist (5-10" 168 lbs), Ryan Merkley (5-11" 170 lbs), and Bode Wilde (6-2" 197 lbs). At forward there are players like Andrei Svechnikov (6-1" 188 lbs), Brady Tkachuk 6-2" 194 lbs), Filip Zadina (6' 190 lbs), Oliver Wahlstrom ( 6' 195 lbs) and Andrew McBain's son Jack (6-3" 196). This is a deep draft with alot of talent so if you finish at the lowest 10, any of those teams will get themselves a player that will make a difference to their franchises quickly. With the Rangers it might not be as important because the coach hasn't let kids straight into the lineup in an important role such as Filip Chytil who was sent to the AHL is now injured. If the Rangers are lucky enough to have a great young talent, the organization has to let them play at the NHL level where they will play against the best and not in the AHL where there are some players that are frustrated and not willing to play the game as safely and respectful as most players in the NHL. Granted some players have a role to play physical, but it is hopefully done responsibly more in the NHL. Lias Andersson was sent back overseas to fine tune his game and his stats in his 20 games is 7 goals- 6 assists for 13 points--a plus 3 and 20 penalty minutes so it looks good on paper.

In my opinion, I still think the Rangers need a center and defenseman and hopefully they will make the move needed to take them back to to an Eastern Conference power. Whatever move is made, G.M. Gorton and Coach Vigneault better be on the same page and not big trades like Yandle or Eric Staal that showed they clearly weren't put into the important role that G.M. Gorton brought them in for by the coach. With players like J.T. Miller, Kevin Hayes, Brady Skjei, Jimmy Vesey, and Boo Nieves all being restricted free agents looking for big raises and others like Rick NAsh, Michael Grabner, and Nick Holden all becoming unrestricted free agents July 1st, G.M. Gorton has alot of looking at the future and knowing what parts he sees in the Rangers future before he makes any moves. There will be movement before this years trade deadline for sure, just who stays while who moves for the missing pieces is going to be a key!

LET'S GO RANGERS!!!!
