 2003-04 New York Rangers Training Camp Coverage << Hockey Alliance  
Position Breakdown
Left Wing --
Locks: Jan Hlavac, Martin Rucinsky, Chris Simon
Bubble: Dan Lacouture, Ronald Petrovicky
Farmhand: Lucas Lawson, Garth Murray, Richard Scott, Juris Stals, Chad Wiseman
Unsigned: None
Skinny: Last season the left wing position was particularly problematic for the Rangers, this year things still remain uncertain though there appears to be more depth with the additions of Hlavac, Rucinsky and Simon.  Last year's duo of Lundmark and Petrovicky figure to move to the right wing this year or perhaps further down the depth chart and maybe to the minors.
Center --
Locks: Bobby Holik, Eric Lindros, Mark Messier, Petr Nedved
Bubble: None
Farmhand: Bobby Andrews, Benoit Dusablon, Cory Larose, Dominic Moore, Layne Ulmer, Mike Wirll
Unsigned: None
Skinny: It was expected to be a strength for the Rangers last season, but with no depth on the wings, the Rangers highly touted centers were relegated to also ran status.  The same core four pivots will return for the 2003-04 season with depth provided by rookie Dominic Moore and playmaking Cory Larose if they can put in solid training camps.
Right Wing --
Locks: Matthew Barnaby, Anson Carter, Alexei Kovalev
Bubble: Pavel Bure, Paul Healey, Jamie Lundmark, Ronald Petrovicky
Farmhand: Brandon Cullen, Ryan Cuthbert, Ken Gernander, Jason MacDonald, Jed Ortmeyer
Unsigned: None
Skinny:  Many expect to see Pavel Bure retire in the coming weeks, which could well free up a spot for Jamie Lundmark to return to the line-up.  Petrovicky may find himself the odd man out in this situation, while Paul Healey would have to have an outstanding camp to make an impression.

Jed Ortmeyer may also be worth watching as a possible call up during the year if injuries force replacements.
Defense --
Locks: Greg de Vries, Darius Kasparaitis, Brian Leetch, Vladimir Malakhov, Boris Mironov, Tom Poti
Bubble: Dale Purinton
Farmhand: Pat Aufiero, John Jakopin, Matt Kinch, Bryce Lampman, Lawrence Nycholat, Rory Rawlyk, Karol Sloboda, Jeff State, Vladimir Tjutin, Craig Weller, Mike Wilson
Unsigned: Ales Pisa
Skinny:  The Rangers appear to have set their top six defensive spots in stone with the signing of Boris Mironov last week.  The situation appears to consign Purinton to the dreaded seventh defenseman spot once again, though injuries will always be expected with this group.

A handful of the farmhands and rookies have a chance to make an impression at camp and move up on the depth chart, most notable Vladimir Tjutin, although Jakopin, Lampman, Nycholat and perhaps Rawlyk too could make an appearance this season especially if Leetch's recent foot injury proves to be worse than it looks.
Goaltender --
Locks: Mike Dunham, Jussi Markkanen
Bubble: none
Farmhand: Jason Labarbera, Scott Meyer, Phil Osaer, David St Germaine
Unsigned: none
Skinny:  Dunham has the starting job with Mike Richter retiring over the summer and it looks as if Markkanen will serve as his backup to allow Blackburn to get more playing time down in Hartford, although it is unknown at this stage whether his recent shoulder injury will cause him to miss any time.

Labarbera will split time with Blackburn, which will force Meyer, who is coming off a terrible sophomore season, back down to Charlotte.
SWOT
Strengths --
The Rangers offense should be improved over last season with Kovalev and Carter replacing an injured Bure and Dvorak from last year.  The additions of Hlavac and Rucinsky also should go some ways to improving a previously weak left wing, allowing Lindros to perhaps gain back some of his old form. 

Goaltending too should be somewhat more reliable this year with Dunham between the pipes and backups Markkanen and Blackburn providing much needed depth.
Weaknesses --
The same question marks reside over the Rangers this season as in previous years.  What will their defense and special teams be like and in particular can the penalty kill become stronger?
Opportunities --
With a veteran line-up once again, there are few opportunities for players to break into the NHL roster.  But with veterans come an increased risk of injury, especially on the defense where Leetch and Malakhov in particular have missed significant times in recent years.

Perhaps the biggest opportunities might go to the likes of Richard Scott (backing up Simon?) and Fedor Tjutin, though another possibility might be Jed Ortmeyer if he has a strong camp and moves up the depth chart.

Threats --
With the glut of veteran defenseman and the inability to pass through waivers, it's possible that Ales Pisa and Dale Purinton may find themselves on the waiver wire.  Pisa remains unsigned at this stage and may not return to the Rangers at this stage, while Purinton again finds himself on the outside looking in.

Petrovicky and Lundmark too may find they have difficulty breaking into this veteran laden roster.  Lundmark can still play in Hartford and may find himself there at the start of the season, while Petrovicky could become a waiver casualty before the season officially gets under way.

Surprises / Concerns
Camp Surprises --
Dominic Moore has played himself into a longer stay with the Rangers this preseason.  Unfortunately for him, there really is little room for him on the roster and the best he can hope for is to be moved up the depth chart.

Another youngster who has caught some eyes, is 8th round pick from 2000 Juris Stals.  The tall winger is still without a contract, but appears to have played himself into a longer look and remains with the Rangers squad.

Finally Bryce Lampman looks to have leapt over Tjutin and Nycholat and may challenge Dale Purinton for the 6th and final defensive spot with Leetch perhaps not ready for the start of the season.

Camp Concerns --
Perhaps the biggest disappointment so far has been Fedor Tjutin's play in camp, but with the young Russian developing a reputation for poor camps, it is perhaps to be expected.  Tjutin has reportedly been nervous and perhaps could benefit from some time down in Hartford to build confidence and develop his obvious talent further.

Roster Cuts --
As part of the current collective bargaining agreement, NHL clubs cannot carry more than 23 players on their active roster. There are no mandatory cut down dates, but teams must be at their limit by their first regular season game. Additional players attending camp, but not making the Rangers, will be assigned to the Rangers top development affiliate, the Hartford Wolfpack of the American Hockey League or Charlotte Checkers of the ECHL, other minor league teams or returned to their Junior or European clubs.
