As for who gets called up, I wonder if they'll even call up a defenseman at the moment. Might call up a forward to test out first.

I'd rather see Baranka in NY than Girardi, mainly because I don't feel Girardi will ever be a real good NHL defenseman and Baranka is more suited to the NHL, but you could see Girardi called up to be the 7th D as well...
Good point about the possibility of no D-man being called up for the next two games (Sat and Mon), but after that a 7th D-man is a must....

I think Baranka has more individual talent but also think the steady Girardi will make it...Also think his game will be suited for a team playing solid positional team defense, which unfortunately isn't our forte...

I really hope one of those two are called up. I'm really high on both Baranka and Girardi. I really want to see if Girardi can translate the strong positional game he plays in the AHL to the NHL. He makes amazing first passes out of the zone, something that the Rangers current D often has problems with.

Id say either Richter or Baranka. Neither are scrubs. I think Baranka is just about ready to step up to the next level.

My guess would be Lampman or Weller (purely on the fact that they are the oldest) lol

I doubt it. Atlanta already has Exelby and Vishnevsky, both of whom do the job better and make less... I don't see how many non offense minded bangers you can fit on one team.

Well at minimum, it's one of the roster spots they needed to call guys up, perhaps it's clearing cap room for another deal?

Maybe Sather is getting ready to swing a deal??

There has been alot of talk regarding Malone & Orpik. Someone posted this link in the Trade Rumors section-

Could be, some of those 2nd C's carry some Cap weight with them...

Brad Stuart, signed to an extension, would also be a nice thought...Just grabbed that out of the air..

Are there a lot of GM's at the All-Star game? This could be a precursor to another move, possibly before the All-Star game tonight or tomorrow morning?

NYR place C Jason Krog on waivers.

You think that the Rangers would put him on Waivers already? I was thinking towards the end of the season if anything. Malik should be next imo but I doubt Sather would do that. Please waive or trade Malik that would make a lot of fans very very happy.

I just think they prefer to keep the others, Krog was really a shot in the dark and I think they know that. If he makes it through waivers he's part of the Wolfpack playoff push.

...

I would rather we call up a Forward...hopefully Immonen because we desperately need a 2nd line center and I think if Renney stays patient with him, Immonen will be a good 2nd line center.

Yes, I would also waive Krog...this way with Krog and Kasper waived, we can call up Immonen and a 7th D (Baranka or Girardi)

I truly hope that is their thinking. On the NHL level, he adds FO ability and that's it...No energy, no life..On the AHL level, he could truly bolster the Pack's offense..Like Brad Smyth

It could be refs would stop calling those non-calls comes playoff time. In this case Kaspar could play his game and may be useful.

Why would any team take him? I would rather that than have him suffer the indignity of having to play in the ahl.

Stuart's wife is from California and there is speculation she wants to return to California

The Blues want to re-sign Eric Brewer who is other guy mentioned in rumors
