The Rangers would also go with only 22 players on the roster, as they did much of last year. We also might see the development of the likes of Anisimov and Sanguinetti accelerated. I somehow doubt that Cameron Hope, acknowledged as one of the best cap-meisters in the league, was somehow caught off guard by this.

Again, for all of the Backman haters out there, be of good cheer; there is NO way he plays in NY this year, especially in light of this news.
