Based on what I saw last year, Strudwick is not fit for 10th defenseman duties.
Yeah, i know he's "good in the locker room" and all but i'm hard pressed to understand why they resigned the guy. Theres no way that I would play him if Staal is ready or Pock is still here.
Its just stupid. Hes a good guy, yeah... sticks up for his teammates... blah blah blah.
are all higher on the depth chart.
Hell i'd throw in Sauer and Sang in a game before Struds at this point to see what they could do...
That would make him 11th. "Not fit for 10th defensman duties" lol

Callahan, Dubinsky/Anisimov (one of), Dawes(eventually), Girardi, Staal make the big club
Two of Kaspairitis/Hutchinson/Strudwick are traded for something.
I could also see Kaspar making the BIG team at the expense of someone - but how could this work capwise. It won´t I guess... Unless there is a trade.
One has to wonder if Bahensky's and Pikkarainen's decisions weren't impacted by the level and depth of competition for spots on both the Rangers and Wolfpack. MAN, I'm looking forward to this year's hockey seasons.
