The Rangers have enough forward depth where they can just dump both Ferriero and Palmieri and maybe even Mashinter (though I'd hold on to him maybe--size, grit, some skill). Don't think Ferriero, Palmieri were impressive enough or even in the teams plans. Sauer will be a medical decision. It doesn't look good at this point.

Personally I'd keep Pyett--seems to be smooth, good with the puck, helps the offense, maintained a nice +/- throughout the year. Vernace is another option to keep for pretty much the same reasons.

As far as UFA's I'd try to bring back Clowe--but that's got to be within ($-and term) reason. Eminger I like as well. He's a gamer. Other than that Hamrlik, Gilroy, Segal, Collins--it's see you later.

So basically we lose Ferriero, Palmieri, Niemi, Hamrlik, Gilroy, Segal, Collins and unfortunately Sauer-8 bodies. Then there's 4 maybes--Eminger, Mashinter, Pyett, Vernace. And then there's what Clowe decides to do.

If Rangers could dump Taylor Pyatt as well that's another spot.
i think Rangers keep Ferriero based on that he brings alot of speed to the lineup whenever he gets to play.. id dump Niemi, Collins, Segal Newbury before Ferriero..
