RUMOR MILL

Saturday - October 16th

On tonight's Hockey Night in Canada intermission report during the Rangers-Canadiens game, it was brought up that the Rangers have approached Kravtsov again about playing in Hartford. No decision yet, but sounds like perhaps the Rangers are trying to find a way forward. With a potential injury to Kaapo Kakko tonight, it means the Rangers top six depth has taken another hit.

Rangers Future Somewhat Defensive?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 11:05:02 PM - June 3, 2010
What Torts wants is what Torts gets. Coach Tortorella wanted to clean house of the defensemen that played on the Rangers blueline and has the transformation almost complete to his liking. Gone are Morris, Mara,Strudwick, and the type of player that either didn't play or fit into the offensive defensemen version of Tortorella hockey.

In are the "new Rangers" version of Del Zotto, Staal, Girardi, Gilroy, and a large list of the likes in the system waiting for a chance. Look for the Rangers to finally rid themselves of Redden, either to Hartford or a situation like what Kasparitis did by playing overseas. Roszival could be the only defenseman that is over the age of 26 on the Blueline this year.

The Rangers have made a committment to the youth movement despite what Sather wants to do. The Rangers let their "real" GM walk away to the Coyotes but thank you Donny for leaving Gordie Clark behind as his drafts of the last 3-4 years have been very good. If Sather could just stay on vacation for the first 2 weeks of July and fight the temptation of the big name players, Rangers fans would be happy. There is a real chance that of the 50 NHL contracts each team is allowed, 19 could be defensemen. That does NOT include this weeks AHL signing of Dan Ringwald from R.I.T.(6'1" 205 lbs) free agent signing. Ringwald was the leading defensive point scorer on the final four team.

Torts has had Sather try to get McDonagh(6'1" 212 lbs and a two-way player) to leave Wisconsin early with a tempting signing bonus, but he was named captain of the Badgers and has decided(at this point) to stay for his final year. The other defenseman is the Gomez trade is Valentenko(6'2"-220 lbs), a nasty stay at home defenseman the Rangers are looking for. Problem is,he is coming off a shoulder injury and will only come back from overseas if he is assured an NHL roster spot.

Sanguinetti has to come into camp ready to play in the NHL this year as the Rangers are looking at him as the 6th or 7th dman this season. Potter is a RFA this season and has never been given a real chance to stay in the lineup. Sauer(6'3"),also a RFA has had a history of shoulder injuries, but if healthy would fit into a role the Rangers need. These are the best chances of maybe 1 or 2 to make the Rangers out of camp barring any big signing from Sather.

The problem that Sather has to figure out is that most of the defensemen that the Rangers have in their system are in the final year of their 1st professional contracts. Granted that they are all restricted, but they need places in the NHL, AHL, and even the ECHL to play to see if they are worth keeping. When you see the Rangers and Islanders making a trade, you know it is something special. The Rangers traded a late round pick for Jyri Neimi(6'3" 210 lbs--19 year old captain of the Finish Jr. team). It was the type of deal the Rangers made when they got rid of Russell a couple of years ago where he wasn't going to sign with the Rangers so they traded him for a pick instead of losing him as he would go back into the draft and getting nothing.

Others in the system on defense to watch are: Kundratek,Baldwin,Dowzak,Williams,Klassen,Maggio.

Getting rid of Redden is the start of getting better. Resigning Staal to a long-term contract is a must and Girardi for another 1-2 years is a no-brainer. Gilroy hopefully will be ready for a full season and not tire out near the end of the season. Del Zotto should take another step towards being in the top 4 rotation. Rozsival could be moved as he was part of the Tampa "handshake" trade that never was finalized. Add in Sanguinetti/Potter/Valentenko/Sauer or this years darkhorse Baldwin, and the Rangers are better on the blueline than last year. It is time to see what the Future holds for the Rangers on the Blueline.
