Went to Hartford
PA Parenteau is gone
Parenteau scored 34 goals and 81 points in 2007-08 and 29 goals and 78 points last season for Hartford. This is his seventh AHL season, he is earning $500,000 and is an unrestricted free agent. Playing regularly, I think he can help some teams---because he doesn't seem to be in the Rangers long-term plans.
When asked if he felt that he was afforded a fair opportunity in the organization, the Quebec native's answer was quick: "Iím not gonna answer that one; I just want to finish the season healthy."
Bobby Sanguinetti resumed skating last week-high ankle sprain
"Iím just trying and make sure I come back and have a good finish to the season. Hopefully theyíre looking at me," said Sanguinetti, who is signed for $765,000 next season.
"Thatís my main focus, just a matter of trying to win a spot. Itís tough not being up there, it's everybodyís goal. You hate to think about it, but maybe I would have been there if I hadn't been hurt." (Corey Potter played Feb. 10 against Nashville and on the 14th with Michael Del Zotto out.)
The transition for countryman Artem Anisimov seemed easier (16-27-43 in 74 G in 2007-08 in Hartford) and when asked if he believed that he was going through a period of adjustment, Grachev said: ďI believe soÖI hope so. Iím just trying to not think about it, just trying to get some experience, every night, every game. (Head coach) Kenny (Gernander) has been working with me on defense, heís trying to get my attention most on that part of the game.Ē
Grachev played on the wing at Brampton but Zipay keeps talking about him playing at center.
