RUMOR MILL

Thursday - January 6th

Frank Seravalli of The Daily Faceoff released his top 20 trade targets, and the Rangers have a few points of interest on the list.

In terms of trade assets, he highlights Alexandar Georgiev and Vitali Kravtsov as two players available for the right price. While I touched on Georgiev yesterday, Kravtsov remains very unlikely to return to the Rangers - though who knows for sure - and could potentially be the target for a team looking to add. Still, like Georgiev it would seem unlikely that he'll be gone at the tradeline, and perhaps more likely at next year's Entry Draft.

In terms of areas of interest, Seravalli touches on Montreal Defenseman Ben Chiarot - also covered by Arthur Staple The Athletic earlier in the week - as well as Tomas Hertl, the impending UFA center from San Jose.

While a Chiarot deal would involve the Chris Drury trying to work a deal with his former dismissed boss, Hertl would be a surprising move, given the risk that he might not gel with the roster AND that he's possibly only slightly better than Ryan Strome, likely to receive even more money in the UFA market.

The Rangers and Tony DeAngelo avoided a looming Oct 5 arbitration hearing


DeAngelo And Georgiev Sign Two-Year Deals
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 1:11:31 PM - October 16, 2020

And just like that, the Rangers sign two of their four main RFAs - apologies to Darren Raddysh - and both for reasonable two year contracts.  Sure they're both a little on the high side, but with the shorter term and speed at which they got done, you can expect a little inflation.

Discuss in the forums: Georgiev signed and DeAngelo signed

While most observers predicted an agreement ahead of the November 5th date for goaltender Alexandar Georgiev, the inking of defenseman Tony DeAngelo was perhaps a little less expected.  DeAngelo had a break-out season last year, placing fourth in the league with 53 points in 68 games when the season was suspended.  His 15 goals were a full 10 better than his previous career high set back in his rookie season of 2016-17 with the Arizona Coyotes, and his point total 23 more than last year's 30 he registered in his second season with the Rangers.

On a two year contract, both the player and the team take some risk.  If DeAngelo proves last season wasn't a fluke, he'll see his value rise further and will put the Rangers at a bit of a disadvantage at the end of the contract, faced with what will likely be a substantial number and term, or another short-term deal that will lead into UFA status shortly after.  From the player perspective he gets a little extra money now, but if he can't maintain his pace, he may miss out on some of that salary on the outer years.

Whether DeAngelo remains part of the long term plans for the organization remains to be seen.  Played as a third pair defender with first unit power play time, the 24 year old provided a significant amount of offense last year, and the edge to his game gave a fairly passive team an extra element when the need arose.  His defensive play remains inconsistent, and it remains to be seen whether that aspect of the game can evolve, but overall he's been a good acquisition for the Rangers.

His off-ice persona, where he is often outspoken about his beliefs and view of life, might be a challenge for some teams, but as we've seen with other players in the past, the Rangers are not necessarily afraid of that aspect of a player, as long as it doesn't go too far.

In Alexandar Georgiev, they make good on their decision to let Henrik Lundqvist depart, keeping the 24 year old Bulgarian born netminder in the organization for at least another two years.  It was the play of both he and projected #1 Igor Sheshterkin that has given the team confidence that they can move forward with the pair in net.  If Sheshterkin continues his form and establishes himself as a true #1, then the team will have the option to deal Georgiev and give him the opportunity to be the starter elsewhere.  If there's injury or loss of form, then the undrafted netminder could still become that starting goaltender for the team.

All in all, a good piece of work by the Rangers GM Jeff Gorton, avoiding what could have been a challenging hearing, particularly for DeAngelo.
