remember they are waived, not sent down. according to the Rangers website

The Rangers also placed defensemen Brendan Bell (pictured) and Stu Bickel on waivers Tuesday---doing so as a precaution just in case another defenseman is acquired prior to opening night.

I also think that if they pass now (valid for 30 days) then they will send players back down as needed without passing through waivers again and now when all sorts of players are going through waivers, it's unlikely, or less likely they will get claimed now while later, especially if Bell and Bickel see NHL action and actually do well, they will be tested and potentially more attractive to poach.

Mara used to be an average NHL defenseman. Now he sucks.

I'm sorry. I had to say it.

McCabe is too slow to take a regular shift. The only area he can make a useful contribution to is the pwp.

I didn't understand this at first but now it makes sense.

Torts seemed a little worried that one or both of those two might get claimed, but I think the odds of that happening are a little slim

If staal really will only be out 2 games then I would rather have one of these guys fill the roster spot than sign someone who will be rendered useless in a week or 2
