It's tough when all the roster spots are more or less spoken for. You get one chance to show your stuff and if you have a bad night it's all over--and then the same guy can go down to the AHL and have a really good season. Not sure if V-tank has the goods to prove himself a legit NHL player over a stretch of games--but this wasn't a stretch it was one single night where he got picked apart on a couple of plays. The Rangers have given up on guys before and occasionally it has bit them in the ass.

For now if V-tank's going to stick out the season in North America give him credit for that and if an opportunity to go back up presents itself and his play this season warrants his recall then good for him. Having pencilled in MDZ and Erixon to start the season to me--one of these 3 dmen are going to be recalled in case of injury--Valentenko, Kundratek, Parlett.
