Bonino To Be Placed On Waivers

Forward Nick Bonino is expected to be put on waivers today, and will likely be sent down to Hartford after a tough stretch of games for the Rangers. With the team as a whole struggling, Bonino still stands out with the team worst (for players with more than 1 game) Corsi For% of 37.76 when […]

Gauthier Reassigned and Tinordi Claimed

Veteran defenseman Jarred Tinordi has been claimed by the Chicago Blackhawks, further weakening the Rangers’ blue line depth.  Signed last year as a free agent, Tinordi was in the final year of a two year deal, having played just seven games for the Rangers. Tinordi made the opening night roster, and even played against the Washington Capitals […]

Devils Claim Geertsen

Forward Mason Geertsen has been claimed off of waivers by the New Jersey Devils, less than two days after making his preseason debut against the very same Devils.  Geertsen, a former 4th round pick of the Colorado Avalanche in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, has yet to play an NHL game, but looks a good chance to […]

Waivers Cleared For All Six

All six players placed on waivers for purposes of reassignment to Hartford have cleared, and will now join the Wolf Pack ahead of their training camp.  The six included Anthony Bitetto, Keith Kinkaid, Tim Gettinger and Jonny Brodzinski, who all saw limited action last year to cover for injuries. Also sent down, were Ty Ronning and Anthony Greco, who are both […]

Haley Clears Waivers

Yesterday the Rangers placed Micheal Haley on waivers, and he cleared today at noon eastern time. While he has not yet been reassigned to Hartford, it seems only a matter of time before the team makes the move and takes him off the roster. The initial reprieve is probably only due to Mika Zibanejad remainig out for Wednesday’s game, […]

McIlrath Clears Waivers

Former first round pick Dylan McIlrath has cleared waivers and will be assigned to Hartford today.  The 24 year old blueliner’s career with the Rangers is still at risk, given that he still requires another 41 NHL games in order for New York to retain his rights next year. The move to the AHL will allow him […]

McIlrath On Waivers

The chances of Dylan McIlrath sticking with the Rangers took a substantial hit today with news that the Rangers have placed him on waivers with intent to assign him to Hartford.  The immediate risk to his future on Broadway will of course be the possibility of another team claiming him for nothing. With an $800,000 Salary Cap […]

Asham and Powe Still Rangers

Both Arron Asham and Darroll Powe were placed on waivers yesterday, in the hope that a team might claim them and review their respective salaries from the Cap calculation.  At 12pm Eastern today, they remained unclaimed and as such remain on the Summer roster. Each team is however allowed to exceed by 10 percent the $64.3M cap figure over […]

The Silly Season Is Upon Us

New York placed veteran forwards Arron Asham and Darroll Powe on waivers yesterday, in the hopes that someone else will pick them up.  Both are in the final years of their respective contracts, with Powe at $1.06M and Asham and $1M in terms of salary cap.  Neither forward has particularly impressed in a Rangers uniform, although Asham did at […]

Stu Bickel Clears Waivers

After sitting out the last seven games as a healthy scratch, the Rangers have decided to place defenseman Stu Bickel on waivers as they prepare for potential additions from Europe and possible moves at the deadline. Bickel carries a $750,000 cap hit, and seems unlikely to be claimed off of waivers at this stage of the season. […]
