New Jersey signed Cam Janssen who will probably spend a large portion of this year in the AHL--Janssen is around Wilson's size--plays for a rival organization and would eat him alive.
They will probably sign a goon, unless they think McNaught is ready to take on that role. DiDiomete & Soryal combined for over 60 fights for the Whale, and they're gone. Will Bickel & Nightingale be back, who combined for 30 more? But I doubt the Rangers will sign Yablonski or Mirasty... I just don't see them as wholesome Ranger kind of guys.
I actually thought they might give Aaron Boogaard a tryout before his arrest. Jesse Boulerice? David Koci might be a possibility, if he doesn't land on an NHL roster.
