It stinks both McLI and Fast got a little banged up but both look to be minor. These scrimmages are very important. Builds friendships, chemistry, familiarity, shows the prospects how hard it's going to be to make it to the NHL, helps guide their summer, etc. Any chance a prospect has to compete and work with NHL trainers, in an NHL facility is essential to development. Not every non first rounder can be a Mike Ridley or Tim Kerr and just show up and have the ability to play with the big club.

Lindberg looks to be a shrewd pickup. I don't expect much offense from him but he should come in and hold down the fort on the fourth line for the next decade. You all think it's funny how much Torts will use Boyle or Richards on D-Zone faceoffs, Lindberg is going to be that guy; the guy who with 7.7 seconds with a one goal lead in a tie playoff series will be out there to prevent Buffalo in 2007 again.

McLIrath will be fine. It's cool to hate him. If he projects to be what they envisioned, he's going to be a very valuable piece in the Rangers tough division/conference/whatever it's called in the future.
