- one year at around 3 M as backup plan to add depth scoring - why not?
- possibly a 3rd option...Big chance
- nope, Torts would take away his IHOP vouchers
- hope not, but might happen on a one year deal
- ship has most likely sailed, some bad blood there I believe
- I would hope so aS a great stopgap 3rd line RW alternative - but methinks Sather not interested
- not really that interested as I believe he might be Chris Higgins 2 and will cost excessive $$$ as FA
- veteran with offensive upside, injury problems say NO
- see Michael Samuelsson
- pipe dream (unless Girardi or Staal + is traded for Bobby Ryan... Then maybe yes). Probably headed to DRW
- great shot but their will be suitors driving up $$$, too expensive IMO
- maybe on a short contract
- see Corey Sarich
Slim pickings to fill NYR needs and stay within cap for reasonable time.
Looking at your list of forwards, they're either not happening or I am just not interested (Jagr's not going anywhere to be a 3rd liner). One forward you didn't mention who is somewhat intriguing is Jiri Hudler. One grinder who the Rangers saw up close was NJ's Bernier.
On defense, if the Rangers are looking for offensive help you could also look to Wideman who will obviously garner some interest or Kuba...and then there's always Souray.
If looking for a stay at home type, Barret Jackman is out there...and I could see Torts dipping back into his TB past for Kubina.
And because Slats is doing the shopping, I guess it's worth mentioning that Parros and Konopka are free agents (I have to admit I do like the fact that Konopka is good on draws).
