FWIW I don't think the Rangers are very high on Parenteau and in any case I believe he's UFA. A few players should make a run at a Rangers spot--Korpikoski, Byers, Moore, Potter--possibly Sanguinetti (though maybe not all that likely) , Anisimov.

Beyond that group I kind of expect Jessiman to be re-signed. He seems a longer shot for now than some of the above who are forwards but he did show good progess last year. Brodie Dupont and Alex Bourret do not appear ready yet but both are guys that hopefully start to progress more. Dupont is just the kind of the player the Ranger could use--probably more a 3rd line projection--he has good size, decent skills and plays a physical game. Mike Sauer is projected to miss training camp--so I expect when he's healthy again he'll be in Hartford but he could be a callup sometime during the coming year.

Should also mention Josh Gratton who I believe is an RFA. He has NHL experience and might make a run at a 4th line job.
