I didn't think Hagelin did much of anything to show he's ahead of Bourque on the depth chart. I think Mitchell might be ahead of him as well.

This will be the first time in... a long time that the Rangers go into the regular season with no rookies on the roster. I'm not counting Bickel because he is injury insurance and will not be in the starting 6.

Will Dale Weise have to clear the half-price waivers on the way back up? If so, this may be a year-long sentence in the AHL, which would suck.

I dont know if EC will make the team or not but he does have some things in his favor.

1. He scored on a rocket of a shot yesterday.

2. His salary is only around $925k which could be important because of the cap.

3. One of the best shootout guys in the NHL. This team couldnt afford to lose any points last season or the season before. Some people may not like shootouts but in recent seasons shootout points/wins became very important.

i forgot that Bickel was acquired in a swap for Nigel Williams with Anaheim. Seemed a completely innocuous trade at the time

Don't think of it in a bad way. With our current defensive roster, he could find a way to sneak in mid season like McDonagh did last year. I wouldn't be worried.

1)He does this every year then disappears for 5 games, means nothing.

2)Won't help us because Avery costs us 1.9m ...if we could deal him there would be a strong argument to keep EC as an extra, but since Aves is untradable, it really doesnt matter.

3)BR, Wolski, and MZA are all good at SOs so this isn't a big deal.

yeah, but the point is that him and his family are comfortable living in the States. There won't be any homesickness issues or anything like that.

Hopefully someone like Bourque, Hagelin, Weise or Erixon makes the team mid-way through the season.

Not nervous about him never making it, I think he will be up here no later then December, just when a player refuses to play for a team because he wants to go elsewhere, it can rub some people the wrong way on his attitude.

If he is alright with going to Connecticut then all is well, you just never know though. Hopefully it's more about him being a Ranger then an NHL player.

The only one who deserved to get a sniff was Bourque.

The rookies were very disappointing this training camp.

1. He still scores more than the other guy in the equation.

2. Isnt $925 more cap friendly than 1.9mill? Both players can be demoted to the AHL but which clears more cap space if demoted?

3. EC is one of the all time best in shootouts and sometimes shootouts go more than 3 shooters.

I'm not saying EC will make the team. I'm just saying I can see that EC does have some factors in his favor.

Yes, play it safe. Two games won't be a big deal. To be honest, I'd have kept Erixon for the two big-ice games where he would be efficient. Then send him down when he returns to the United States and gets replaced by Staal.

Rangers didn't place Weise on waivers today. Just Mitchell and Newbury.

Bickel requires waivers when/if he is assigned to the AHL at some point

heard that before, does the name gomez ring a bell? I am not agreeing or disagreeing with you, avery is very difficult to trade because of his history with any team he has played on besides the rangers, however, he has grown up i think. At the same time he has played better than ec, so he should win a spot over ec, but avery is tradeable, just difficult

Unless Avery is on Torts' **** list, I don't see how he doesn't make the team. He fits into Torts system 100000000000000000x better than Christensen. Also with the Richards signing, the Rangers are stocked at center:

Richards
Anisimov
Stepan
Boyle
Newbury
Mitchell

Rupp can also play center. In my opinion Avery has been very noticeable in preseason. The only time I remember even hearing Christensen's name is when he scored that goal.

Basically Christensen's only useful asset at this point is in the shootout. With MZA, Wolski, Richards, and Hank, I ain't scurrred.

are they definitely playing on bigger ice? I thought they reduced the rink size to NHL dimensions

If it comes down to a matter of cap hits, i'll understand. Still think Avery can help this team more.
Avery's big negative on him... had this in the back of my mind all the time...

These games are on bigger ice, but once the season starts we'll be playing on NHL sized rinks.

I'm not as surprised about Erixon. Bourque was one I thought might have stuck though, he has been good.

so the games vs LAK & ANA are definitely on nhl size rinks?

i think playing on the bigger ice makes it really hard to evaluate players

Yeah... If Avery doesn't make the team then there is some serious ********* going on in the Rangers organization.
