This is not the first time Sather has mentioned Lindberg and Fasth playing this season. Zuccarello will want a one way deal for good money which he should demand considering he is making good money in the KHL. Sather isn't giving him that type of contract.

January 13

Mats Zuccarello, playing for Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the KHL, remains on the Rangers’ reserve list and would be eligible to play for the Blueshirts this season — without clearing waivers — if he were to sign with the club following the end of his season in Europe. That represents a change in the CBA.

Similarly, management will keep a keen eye on a pair of 21-year-old forwards skating in the Swedish league — Jesper Fast of HV 71, and Oscar Lindberg of Skelleftea — for possible late-season NHL duty.

“I don’t know if it’s a good rule or not,” Sather said. “But we’ll sure take advantage of it if it makes us better.”

Lindberg and Fasth were loaned to their teams in Sweden. The first season of their ELCs have counted already. The Sens used Silfverberg in the playoffs last season. The Hawks used Marcus Kruger in 10-11 after he played in Sweden that season. Anyone who can skate,handle the puck and make a play is an improvement over Brian Boyle.
