Tells me they are going to sign one more player (fwd) for the NYR.
They are at 22 contracts on the team right now (24 with Sauer on LTIR and Segal is most likely a temporary callup). If Mashinter were to have been claimed on waivers he would have had to have been on the the NYR squad for one month. Once Segal goes down again they are back at 22.
Who is it that they are looking at?
Optimal IMO would be to sign/pickup on waivers a fwd depth guy, trade for Douglas Murray on D, sign Miles Bell (take a chance & try to restore the cupboard) and pickup a reliable AHL D on a minor league contract for CT. Then go with this until the deadline, maybe then bringing in a final piece and eventually then also adding Zuccarello if the PP does not click. We need a great PP in the playoffs if we make it there.
