To me that indicates they have no plans for him on the Rangers... Plus White can't be completely in the dark about this if he has half a brain... He knows his trade was part of a cap hit dump for the Rangers and not a situation where the Rangers targeted/pursued a player deliberately and sent assets the other way for the acquisition.... This was a salary dump for ATL and a cap dump for the Rangers.... There should be no implied assumption that the Rangers have a spot/role for White....
Yeah, maybe they didn't pencil him into the lineup when calling for his services, however, if the guy plays better than others, he's going to make the team. And he's probably going to play better than others. At least others in his "role", Boyle, Stepan, etc.
