No Redden or Rozsival on the PP. Drury yes.

Good to see many of the younger players skating at the optional skate. Torts must like to see them work even when it isn't mandatory.

Also, as for a 7th d-man, how about M.A Bergeron?

No No No No No No.

I want my 7th defenseman to be reliable in the defensive zone. Besides that, Del Zotto, Gilroy, and Rozsival are very offensive and Redden, Staal, and Girardi can contribute offensively as well. Then in Hartford we have Sanguinetti. If anything this team needs a big defensive defenseman for depth, not an offensive defenseman who has no concept of defense.

Their is Dandenault, Bergeron that are UFA's

Apparently Potter is not coming up. At 25 I think he may aswell be moved for a pick

The Rangers apparently put in a claim for Schubert. That's what Sens Chirp claims.

Potter should be a decent veteran defenseman for Hartford though. He's not really blocking anyone so there's no reason to move him.

Yea but i think the philosophy is that at this point in his career at the age of 25, his value is only going to go down as he gets older. Trade him while he still has value is probably the idea.

If the Rangers don't have plans for him being on the NHL roster any time soon then they owe it to him to at least attempt to find him a better opportunity around the league.

I guess, but I doubt he really has any value at all at this point.

I don't think they really owe him anything. When his contract expires he can leave if he likes.

Potter would be a very adequate 7th defenseman for the Rangers, they should just call him up

It's too bad noone from within can be the 7th guy. I'm sure someone will pop up on waivers.

I think they can hold off on it. If we suddenly get an injury, a player like Sangs, Sauer or Potter can step in for a few games. If they will show themselves incompetent, there's always a vet to be signed or acquired very cheaply.

Sangs and Sauer can't be #7 because they are young and need to play. But if someone goes down, I am fairly certain they can step in and be #6.

Sangs had half a point per game in the AHL, which is a lot, and he showed very solid defensive play in the preseason. I see no reason why he can't play in the NHL.

Dizzy outplayed him, but Spaghetti is ready for NHL duty on the third pair.

Agreed. MDZ was on a higher level offensively but Sangs certainly looked good enough to get some NHL experience on the 3rd pair.

Really want to see Avery in there against the Devils, hope he can play but I guess it's not looking that good.

If the Rangers think Del Zotto is going to stick there's no need for Bergeron--and to be honest I don't think Bergeron even being a veteran is any better defensively than the 19 year old.

Schubert would not be a bad pickup. He's big--he's versatile--he hits like a truck and goes hunting for hits some times. He does his best to avoid altercations though. Not a fighter.

Agree, but Torts is going to have to roll more then 4D in the 3rd periods. I guess he's just slowing working them in.

I highly doubt it.

Sean Avery, who has missed the opening two games of the season with a sprained knee, is targeting Thursday nightís match in Washington for his 2009-10 debut.


"Iíd have loved to play in [tonightís] Garden opener or Monday in Jersey, but I have to be smart about this and not rush back too soon, especially with a knee," Avery told The Post between periods of Fridayís opening 3-2 defeat in Pittsburgh.

"I donít want to put myself or my team in the situation where I come back before Iím completely ready and then suffer a setback thatís going to keep me out for a month."
That would be THE SUCK...

Anyone think Sangs isn't going to play because he couldn't hack the conditioning drills?

Atlanta claimed Schubert off re-entry waivers on Friday. Calgary wanted Schubert also,

"Dru will get some power-play time along the way but right now I think those six forwards who are playing it now deserve the time," Tortorella said after a team meeting this morning in Westchester. "I think (Enver) Lisin has played very well on the power play and has done some really good things offensively there and 5-on-5. Our team has changed a bit as far as personnel. I think he (Drury) will get some time. It's something I'm going to monitor, as far as the finish. To me, he is not a half-wall guy. He's a guy who has done his thing around the net, tipping in goals, banging in rebounds. it's something I have to consider if we don't get finish."

Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the captain.

Torts on looking for another D man

Quote:
"I'm not gonna lie to you, sure it is. It is a concern, I'm sure something will give sooner or later. We need to do our due diligence. To me, if it's a guy who has some warts, as some of a young kid in our organization, I'd rather keep it within our organization...I don't think that's a really good situation for us. Obviously, we'd like to try to get some sort of veteran who can help out. You can't force-feed that position continually, as young as we are right now. That's why it's taking some time, we want to find the right guy that understands that role while we get to continue to develop our young guys along the way."
http://www.newsday.com/blogs/sports/...nues-1.1499370

A veteran D who doesn't make a lot of money and won't complain about playing time while MDZ,Gilroy and maybe another young D(Sanguinetti)receive playing time.

Yikes, I don't think Drury is going to take too well to these comments. Someone is going to disappoint though, and Drury will get his time

Sounds like an incredibly fair assessment of Drury's game. What did he say that was so insulting, that Dru isn't a half-wall guy? He's not, and I think Drury would agree that he's better utilized in front of the net.
