The thing about Strudwick and Pock is that Renney knows he can throw them out as a forward if he has to.

I know most of this is somewhat far-fetched but I'm just trying to be creative.
I could end up being wrong on this but I don't see why the Rangers would lose Pock or Hutchinson for nothing on waivers when they can move strudwick..

Strudwick makes about $200k less then Pock and $100k less then Hutchinson...If the Rangers need $200k in cap relief at the begining of the season then something is terribly wrong...seriously....

The Rangers carried 8 defensemen for most of last season...They can have Pock and Hutchinson as healthy scratches on most nights...

Marc Staals progression will dictate all of this...which i guess is the point of the thread...
