Where will Stajcer end up?

I say Sarnia or Oshawa.



Bell assigned to Whale; Stajcer to junior
Defenseman and goaltender had been part of team's trip to Europe
Sunday, 10.09.2011 / 5:00 PM / News



New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that defenseman Brendan Bell has been assigned to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League (AHL), and goaltender Scott Stajcer has been returned to Owen Sound of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

Bell, 28, did not dress in the Rangers two games at the 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere in Stockholm, Sweden. He registered one goal and two assists, along with a plus-three rating in five preseason contests.

Bell ranked second among team defensemen in preseason scoring with three points and led the Rangers with a plus-three rating. Bell notched the game-winning goal with 3:04 remaining in regulation, and added an assist on September 23 at New Jersey.

Brendan Bell
The 6-2, 205-pounder tallied two goals and nine assists for 11 points, along with 14 penalty minutes in 29 games with EHC Biel of the Swiss National League-A last season. He led all team defensemen in assists and points, and tied for third on the team overall with a plus-two rating. Bell also skated in one contest with Omsk Avangard of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), recording two assists in his only appearance.

The Ottawa, Ontario native was signed by the Rangers as a free agent on August 9, 2011. He was originally selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the third round, 65th overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Stajcer, 20, did not dress in the Rangers two games at the 2011 Compuware NHL Premiere in Stockholm, Sweden. He returns to Owen Sound where he captured the OHL Championship last season, and participated in the 2011 CHL Memorial Cup in Mississauga, Ontario.


Scott Stajcer
Stajcer led the Attack and ranked fourth in the OHL with a career- high, eight playoff wins, posting an 8-4-0 mark with a 2.79 goals against average and a .909 save percentage in 13 postseason contests. He ranked fifth in the league in playoff minutes played (688), sixth in saves (321), seventh in goals against average, and eighth in save percentage during the playoffs.

The 6-3, 195-pounder posted a 10-3-0 record with a career-best, 2.99 goals against average, a .901 save percentage and one shutout in 14 games with Owen Sound during the regular season. He missed 50 games due to a lower body injury suffered on November 20 vs. Mississauga.

The Cambridge, Ontario native was originally selected by the Rangers in the fifth round, 140th overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

I know there are rumors of Oshawa, and it does make sense, but when did the rumors originate? Maybe that was the plan prior to Altshuller becoming available. We know Altshuller was promised ice time to go to Oshawa, so it would be interesting if they went out and brought someone in that will see the bulk of the games. Do they go back on their word 7 games into the season? I could see it at the deadline, but isn't it to early for that?

Saginaw also makes sense, but with Shalla back earlier this week (he could be sitting for awhile), they're already up to 4 OA's.

Sarnia doesn't make sense, Maxwell's numbers are actually very good through the first 5 games.

Only 4 teams have an open spot, London, Peterborough, Ottawa and Oshawa and you can cross 3 of those teams off for sure. Not a lot of teams out there could use an OA goalie.

Good call by the Rangers, IMHO. Stajcer needs to get back the lost year. I hope he finds a place where he can get it. (And that he truly does come back on top of his game).

If Oshawa wants a #1, they should pony up and get Campbell from the Spits. Trade the Spits Altshuller plus some picks, Gennies become Campbell/Baille with an OA spot still open to improve their team elsewhere and the Spits become Altshuller/Cullen this season and than Altshuller/DeKort for the next two seasons.

Stajcer doesn't make sense to the Generals unless they're trading a goalie and Owen Sound doesn't need a goalie.

It's too soon for Oshawa to make any move really. Give the season at least 20 games to get things sorted out. Stajcer might not find a new home for awhile.

That move would make sense...now will Campbell waive his NTC to go to Oshawa?

Leave a mediocre team with no shot at winning to go to a team that should make the OHL Finals at the very least and would have a strong chance of making the Mem Cup if they got some good clutch goaltending (which is Campbell's specialty)? Why wouldn't he waive it?

It all depends on the kid. Knowing this should be his last year in the OHL, he might just want to finish close to home.

^ Yeah they gave up two 2nds, a 4th and a 5th for Altshuller and a later fifth, so other picks might be too much from their end as that is a package I would have accepted in return for Campbell.

I don't think there is much in it for the Spits to do a straight up deal considering they'll have a couple OA spots open next season and looking at the OA goalies available this season could hope for a similar buyers market on OA goalies next season to pair with DeKort.

Altshuller/DeKort could potentially be a good tandem to have in the next two years, especially in the Mem Cup Host year when they'd be 19yo and 18yo respectively.

I guess it wouldn't be a bad deal for us straight up as we'd essentially have our goaltending and defence locked down through the 2013-2014 season. And we could still look to move Robertson and Kuhnhackl for picks come the trade deadline, possibly Posa as well.

Of course Oshawa knew Campbell was available and chose Altshuller over him this past off-season because they see their contender window being this season and next season so wanted a two year goalie. That hasn't changed less than 10 games into the season.

Stajcer returns

By Bill Walker

The Sun Times

Overage goalie Scott Stajcer has been returned to the Owen Sound Attack by the New York Rangers.

Let the bidding war commence. Or maybe not.

"I don't think trading him right away is something I'm contemplating at all," Owen Sound general manager Dale DeGray said on Monday.

"I would expect that unless someone absolutely blows my doors off with an offer, that he will be here for a month or two. If we're going to move him, he's got to show that he's a top goalie in the league.
"

DeGray also wants to wait and see if Memorial Cup all-star goalie Jordan Binnington can up the level of his play before he moves Stajcer.

"That's part of it but I also think (Stajcer) is a great mentor for Jordan," said DeGray.

"Maybe Jordan was thrown into it (the starter's job) a little quick here. Maybe this month or two or three (with Stajcer) can help with his career."

The National Hockey League's New York Rangers announced on Sunday that the 20-year-old Stajcer was being reassigned to the Ontario Hockey League's Attack.

Stajcer had been impressive at the Rangers' training camp and he earned himself a trip to Sweden with the NHL team who opened the season in Europe.

"I don't think it would be the worst-case scenario for the two of them (Stajcer and Binnington) to play out the season here," said DeGray.


The Cambridge native is now the fourth overage on the Attack's roster and the team can only dress three for a game.

"We can stick with the four right through to January," said DeGray.

"It will almost be a game-time decision, game to game, (on which three of the four will dress)."

Stajcer is a Rangers' fifth-round pick and he inked an entry-level contract with New York in May.

The Rangers have a goalie-rich farm system and Stajcer was the only one with a year of junior eligibility remaining.

He's coming off of a season where he had hip surgery in November and didn't play again until the second round of the playoffs against Plymouth.

Stajcer is expected in Owen Sound either today or Wednesday for practice.

With the Gennies Valentine signing a pro contract with Nashville(?), they'll also be in the market for a veteran defenceman. Spits have over-ager Adrian Robertson that could work there and play in their top four.

Though I think the Spits want to keep all their vets until nearer the trade deadline, to try to stockpile enough wins/points now to be able to get into the play-offs even when going young the second half.

So you think he's gonna end up in Sarnia. Interesting. I've said that for quite a while. But Sarnia would have to 86 Maxwell to get that to happen. Maxwell would not play with Campbell.
