If there's anything this team has a surplus of, it's good passers with little finish. I don't think Vinny is the way to go.

I always felt Biron kind of was dealt a ****** hand. He didn't even get to play much in camp, 30 minutes here and there. Then he was thrown into the fire.

He gets paid well enough for it, but tough situation never-the-less.

Haha, Bryz would be an interesting option, would certainly create an interesting situation if nothing else with Hank being an UFA etc.

Re Pyatt, Pouliot, Dorsett, Asham, Zucc, Fast, Miller, Lindberg, Kreider and co., we currently have a ton of guys that also are dealt a ****** hand.

There are 30 teams in this league, 600 players, and we got a cap in place and a low UFA age. All teams are built more or less the same way, a group of core players that gets the job done and guys who manage to fit in and by brining it in certain specific areas gives you a more or less complete team.

Our kids and the depth players we have had are without any single doubt in the later group, the vets aren't able and the kids aren't ready to be core players and get the job done by themselves.

BUT, our core isn't getting the job done either. And as a rule in this league, when the core isn't getting the job done the depth guys without any doubt are lost. It doesn't matter if its Pouliot/Pyatt or Fast/Miller/Lindberg/Kreider, it is 100% unreasonable to expect these guys to step into a unit that is not working and fix it.

Biron is 36 years old. This is probably his last season in the NHL. Asham is 35. Its probably his last season in the NHL too. Players in their age group had trouble getting NHL contracts this summer.

This strikes me as more of a shot across the bow of this team. I think management wants them to realize that if they don't pick it up ASAP they could be next. Biron was a good lockeroom guy apparently and probably felt his spot was safe. Now he wasn't good, but again... He not the reason this team has flat out sucked all season (including pre)

I had not seen this anywhere, but maybe I missed it. Both Miller and Talbot have been recalled by the Rangers per theahl.com website:

10/14/2013 Cameron Talbot (G) Hartford DEL Recalled from loan by N.Y. Rangers (NHL)
10/14/2013 J.T. Miller (C) Hartford DEL Recalled from loan by N.Y. Rangers (NHL)

NYR have tried to get backups in the past, they put name in for CuJo one year and traded for Alex Auld another. If Talbot has 2-3 bad games, I could see us making a move for someone more proven. He will have a lot of pressure to perform here.
IIRC they claimed Auld off of waivers.

I guess he goes down and its depth for the rest of the yr. Talbot does deserve a shot

likely the end of the line for Asham too. Man this team has too many blah guys

I wonder if a team like Edmonton would rather trade a player like Eager who they waived for Biron than just pick him up. May be a trade in the next day or so.

multiple twitter reports, from Andrew Gross, and others have said the Rangers will give Biron some time to decide what he would like to do, report to Hartford or not.

I think this is classy move by the organization to do that.

No one wants to take on a contract right now. That is why I think a trade is more likely and Biron is not open to re-entry because they aren't there anymore. If a team trades for him, they just bring him back up.

Edmonton waived Eager. He makes less than Biron. Contract for contract. The Rangers save on cap space and get another gritty player who could be used in an emergency (albeit, I hope they don't). UFA at years end. Marty gets to play in the NHL.
