I really do believe that the ideal scenario for the team is for V-tank to make the squad and for MDZ to continue his development in Hartford. If you think about it, if the organization can develop another asset like V-tank, it will give them a tremendous number of options down the line (i.e. trade deadline, summer, etc). You have to think that when other teams chat with Sather about trades, they are just licking their chops over the d-men on this team and in the pipeline. We still need scoring and I think the team's tremendous depth on D will eventually help us get it.

Gernander discussed some of the Rangers young players with Hartford Courant columnist Paul Doyle

Quote:
The other high-profile player in camp was Erixon, who will bid for a spot on the Rangers' roster this fall. A first-round pick of the Flames in 2009, Erixon was acquired by the Rangers for two second-round picks.

Erixon was born in New York when his father played for the Rangers, but he grew up mostly in Sweden and spent the last four years in the Swedish Elite League.

"Very skilled defenseman," Gernander said. "You can see that he's going to be a strong, puck-moving defenseman. Fairly dynamic … but a very simple and very skilled game. He's going to get a lot of consideration in training camp. "

I think that he is going to end up making the Rangers out of camp

Rangers re-sign Stu Bickel

http://www.snyrangersblog.com/2011/0...gn-stu-bickel/

Quote:
Cap Geek reports that the Rangers have signed Stu Bickel to a one-year deal with an NHL cap hit of $600,000.

His AHL salary is $75,000. He was acquired in November.
Completely forgot we got him for Nigel Williams.

I like him because he reminds me of Travis Bickel from Taxi Driver.

I know it seems humongous, but it's a pretty standard split for a two-way deal.

yeah typically the max ahl salary on a 2 way deal is 105k cause that is the max a guy can make without requiring re-entry waivers

Completely average AHL defenseman, but still better than JARED NIGHTINGALE who will probably be wearing a letter and playing first pair minutes. FML.

The older AHL vets tend to get more money at that level. Bickel basically got a $10K raise for completing his ELC--signing his second contract.

Yeah, can't they bring in a guy like John Curry or something? Wouldn't hurt. They're going to have a lot of goalies this year though. Still unclear on what Grumet Morris is doing.

Rangers I believe also will supply a goalie or two to the ECHL affiliate Greenville. Shouldn't matter that there are a lot of goalies... its the Pros, only the strong survive.

I think a good number of those guys are no longer UFAs. Toivonen, Weiman, Wesslau and Curry are all signed in Europe off the top of my head, and Bacashihua is already under contract to Philly.

I have to say though, I wouldn't mind giving Leclaire a two-way contract if he was interested in trying to play his way back up. Though I don't think he'd be too interested considering how we are set with Lundy and Biron.

i would be interested in having leclaire with the whale. as shown last year, back up goalies get injured too. then again talking about injuries leclaire gets hurt in snow ball fights.

Chad Johnson has signed again with us according to Capgeek--a two way contract NHL 525K/AHL 85K for the 11-12 season. A UFA when it expires.

I don't know--I suppose there's worse. I haven't been watching him as much as you though. Opinion on him seems to vary somewhat. At best he's a backup some day.
