That being said, he's cutting it pretty close to the start of the season.
Unless Drury or Dubinsky is moved to the wing and Fritsche center's the 3rd line, we've got an abundance of 3rd/4th liners-- which not only affects the Rangers roster, but the Wolfpack's as well. I believe they have a few spare bodies up front as well. Voros and Rissmiller at 1 mil a pop have to be almost assured a roster spot this year on the big club, and with the resigning of Sjostrom, that leaves: Rissmiller, Voros, Callahan, Sjostrom, Orr and Fritsche all competing for 4 spots on the wings.
But I don't want to turn this into another roster thread. I just really hope we don't ship off players to clear room for Sundin.
