"And the news on Hanke is why I dislike players playing in these tournaments and that includes the Olympics !"


Slap Shots has learned several clubs have inquired about the availability of Rangers goalie Antti Raanta, who will be vulnerable to claim by Vegas.
But moving Raanta, who is one year away from free agency, would guarantee that the Rangers would lose someone else — likely Lindberg, Jesper Fast or Michael Grabner — in the expansion draft.
So Gorton would have to get value in return for the 28-year-old Finn that would compensate for the loss of the goaltender
and the player who would go to the Golden Knights.
If Raanta is not selected by Vegas, the dynamic changes.

Rangers have not told either Dan Girardi or Marc Staal to expect a buyout prior to the expansion draft, nor has management asked either veteran defenseman to waive his no-move clause, sources said. But that does not mean either possibility has been ruled out, because there essentially is no chance both will remain on the roster when training camp commences.

Even before Henrik Lundqvist crumpled to the ice in William Nylander’s excited embrace in Sweden’s gold-medal celebration in the World Championships, the King had sustained an isolated MCL sprain earlier in the tournament.
The four- to six-week rehab is not expected to impact Lundqvist’s summer training regimen or the goaltender’s availability to start training camp.

Finally, for the sake of newly minted Islanders assistant Scott Gomez, let’s hope the players he coaches are more respectful of him than he was of some of his coaches when he played for the Devils and the Rangers.
