I'm pretty sure the Rangers are eliminating/replacing at least 11 SPCs of their 50 from their rolls this offseason. Resigning Vernace won't hurt them.

Also, someone in the league would offer the guy a 2-way deal because he's good AHL depth. If you just offered him an AHL contract, he would be gone.
