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.

Todd White had two goals in the loss

Capital Punishment
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 10:22:57 PM - October 2, 2010

The Rangers wrapped up their preseason schedule with a wild 8-5 loss to the Ottawa Senators in the Canadian Capital. It was far from a marquee night for goaltending or defense from either team, as a dull first period was surpassed by a moderately entertaining eleven goals in the final two.

Missing guaranteed starters Marian Gaborik, Alexander Frolov, Sean Avery, Marc Staal, Michal Rozsival, Dan Girardi and Henrik Lunqvist, the Rangers were always going to have a difficult time against a Senators team that except for Daniel Alfredsson, was largely the team that will start the season.

To their credit, the rag-tag Blueshirts took it to their better known opponents exposing in the process a big weakness in the Senators net. Pascal Leclaire struggled for large stretches of the game, and help keep New York in the game.

Todd White had his best game of the preseason, scoring two goals from directly in front of the net, benefiting on both occasions from misplays by Leclaire. Even with the goals, White still looks a step behind the play.

Martin Biron didn't have a lot of help on the night, with the defense giving up too many odd-man rushes, and too much space. Not that the Senators defense was particularly good either. One thing of concern, is whether Biron can make that big save. In three outings we've seen plenty of solid positioning and saves, but few big saves.

Up front, Brandon Dubinsky had five shots to lead the Rangers, probably his best of the preseason as well. By contrast Erik Christensen was a non-factor on the wing and finishes camp with as many questions as he had going in.

Derek Stepan was on the ice for five goals against, one of which was an empty netter. He also scored a beautiful goal off a Biron pass to catch the Senator defense napping. It's going to be hard to justify sending him down and still be able to claim that there were positions.

Tim Kennedy had an assist, and was more noticeable, but maybe because there were fewer players to compete for prime ice time. Mats Zuccarello got a goal in a call up, Dale Weise an assist on a goal by Artem Anisimov, but the former still looks a little overmatched, while the latter had his best game, but will join his team mate back in Hartford.

Of the remaining forwards, Derek Boogaard got thrown out after giving Chris Neil a hook between the legs after play had stopped, Brandon Prust looked solid again, and Brian Boyle generated chances. Artem Anisimov started strong, but faded as the game went on...and if Ruslan Fedetenko doesn't get a contract, count me among the most surprised.

On the blueline, Pavel Valentenko had an up and down night, and is probably the easiest decision to make for the Rangers. His hitting and shot were both on show again, but he still needs a little work.

Michael Sauer was amongst the steadiest of the Rangers defensemen, which will make the decisions on his future a little harder. Ryan McDonagh made a couple of mistakes in the game, but still remains on course for a spot.

Bubble blueliner Steve Eminger had another up and down game, as did Matt Gilroy. Both made solid defensive plays to break up scoring chances, but were part of an overall defense that gave up too many good chances.

Next step will be cuts, expected to be made tomorrow. Rosters to be finalized by 3:00pm Wednesday, and the Rangers season kicks off next Saturday in Buffalo.
