If he does nothing.. then Torts moves on with EC or perhaps Prospal or Dubinsky and etc...
msv I love your optimism and all, but you do tend to over value just about everyone who is or becomes affiliated with the Rangers.

Yes, White had a great year two years a go. Check out who he played with. Then check out the rest of his career. Pay attention to his other good years in Ottaw being almost 10 years ago.

The guy is coming off crazy shoulder surgery, two knee dislocations, and is damaged goods.

If he makes the club, and everyone else struggles up top, would he eventually get a shot? Probably. But there is ZERO reason to start him there. Especially considering how well EC played with Gabby last year.
