I can think of 6 guys down with Hartford who I feel have a legitimate shot about contributing to the Rangers. Kreider, Miller, Talbot, McIlrath, Lindberg, and Hrivik. It makes you nervous, because you don't want to see this many players' NHL hopes die out playing for Gernander.
I've always hoped Gernander wasn't the head coach. The guy played like 950 AHL games to 50 NHL games. The AHL is a Developmental league and he doesn't know jack about making the jump for the AHL to the NHL.
Dubinsky? Dawes? Callahan? Korpikoski? McDonagh and Hagelin played there. Erixon in Columbus. Weise now in Vancouver.
