No mention of Cameron Schilling who is a junior. Miami-Ohio defenseman.
Rangers could look at signing a goalie if they are not signing Stajcer. Kinkaid has attended two Rangers development camps.
Yeah sure, Keith. It really wouldn't be hard to don a Broadway Blueshirt one day after growing up bleeding blue and orange?
"To be honest, I don't hate the Rangers anymore and really enjoyed taking part in their camps the past two years. I'd definitely play there even if I am an Islander fan.
"It was pretty cool," added Kinkaid when asked how it felt to know the Rangers, as well as a few other teams, were interested in potentially signing him. "They said to have a good year with Union, and we'll take things from there."
Da Costa is the top college free agent. He suffered a knee injury recently. Apparently 2/3 of the NHL wants to sign him. No mention if the Rangers are one of those teams.
Chris Tanev made the jump from one year at RIT to playing on the Canucks injury depleted defense.
