Yeah, if he wants to land on another NHL roster this season he needs to dominate in his 6 games with the Whale. Simple as that.

Rangers can't get like a late pick for him? I'd think someone would want him. NHL12

I gotta kinda feel bad for the guy.

He puts in a ton of work on the things that coaching and management suggest for him over the summer. He comes to training camp and plays well on a line with Richards and Gaborik. After a few decent games to start the year, he goes out of the lineup with an injury. He finally gets healthy but can't crack the lineup because the team is playing too well. Finally, he gets a shot, but shows some rust and gets benched. Now, he doesn't even get put back into the lineup despite some production issues in our offense.

In all honesty, I'm not particularly happy with the way Tortorella has handled Wolski and at the same time, I don't blame our coach. I have said this before, but we really haven't seen what kind of player Wolski is. We got a snapshot of him in a season where he slumped hard and had major confidence issues. We got less than a snapshot of him this season because he's barely played. But the team has been winning. It's one thing to change around the combinations of the players who have been playing every game. It's a whole other to remove someone from the lineup completely and insert someone new.

I just think the whole situation is unfortunate.

i hope he can find his game and light a fire under Richards ass. any way you put it, Ranger fans have to root for this guy. Either to contribute to this team the way a player of his talents is able to, or to raise his trade value so that when we get a player at the deadline, you won't get



from other GMs when we offer him back "for cap reasons." He's talented enough where if you put him with say Datsyuk he'd score a bajillion goals.

I think I could chip in a few if I played with Datsyuk . Wolski , MZA ,Christenson o any other player that likes to pass and skate , play a puck possession game is not cracking the lineup . Heck Brad plays that game and for the most part has been pretty dreadful and is one of te teams only Minus players . WW not a good fit as long as the NYR keep winning . I we had a 5-6 game skid might be diff . But this team playing stingy kick it around the boards bang and crash and back check hockey is not going to show case any creative players

Do you honestly think that he can accomplish anything from the 4th line? I doubt Torts breaks up Boyle/Prust/Dubinsky. And I cannot see him breaking into the top 2 lines.

Wolski is the round peg that lots of folks have the facination to insert into the square hole.

Thatís the consensus of left wing Wojtek Wolski and defenseman Jeff Woywitka after playing six games in 10 days with the Connecticut Whale in two-week conditioning assignments from the New York Rangers. The stints donít officially end until Wednesday, but the Whale donít play again until Friday night at home against the Springfield Falcons.
http://www.ctwhale.com/news/?article_id=840

Will they be at practice today? They were assigned on 2/2. Will the Rangers not bring them back until tomorrow? 14 days in tomorrow. The Rangers would rather have them skate with the Whale?

they are back with the team for sure, really they never left the cap............both are going to be sitting around though. I expect a deal for Wolski real soon

Agree. Which is why I mentioned the Brassard/Wolski thing inbthe other thread.

Wolski would have to go to a team that can afford to take a small risk on him.

Blue Jackets can. They have cap space. They're not in a playoff race. They can try him out and see if he's worth keeping around.

No plan yet for Woywitka or Wolski as far as #NYR roster, per Torts. "We're talking about it now."

What are the chances that anyone will be willing to retain his rights with a $4.18M qualifying offer?

Feds takes a step back. Dubi banged up. Seems like that time is right for that final look at Wolski. He's either part of the LW solution or he's flipped for future considerations contingent on a QO.

Wolski isn't in the doghouse. He is underneath the doghouse. Fedotenko got hurt last week and the Rangers played Bickel at forward instead of bringing back Wolski. The Whale don't have anymore games scheduled during the conditioning stint but they don't bring WW back to skate with the Rangers. Now the stint ends today and the Rangers are still discussing what they are going to do with Wolski.

both wont be around much longer

I imagine Wolski plays for Bickel but likely not tommorow since he hasnt practiced with the team. If Feds is healthy he is in of course

Trading Wolski is the best plan even if they have to take back some salary

I cant see Woywitka having any value, he is evenually waived and helps CT. I think he has a 2 way deal

As far as I know, Woywitka has a 2-way contract so he doesn't have to be put through waivers. What's his salary? Can't be more than 1 mil.

Wolski was a bad choice. Just dump Woywitka and Wolski... Woy was brought in for Staal/Sauer... and Eminger... Stralman's earned a spot. Shop Wolski and Woywitka

I don't think Wolski is in the doghouse so much as his style is out of sync with the way the rest of our forwards play. He's not good enough to crack the top two lines either--rather have any and all of Anisimov, Dubinsky, Hagelin in those spots than WW.
