Well, I guess Blackburn is done, hurt his knee and is getting an MRI on it. Tomorrow they are having a 4 team torney so that should be interesting who steps up.

Guess we'll see how the "competition" for spots goes. It does not sound like Ward or Rozsival have done anything that should vault either into the starting lineup ahead of a younger player.

However, as we have bantered about, what are the chances that, if things continue as is, on opening night at least 2 ouf the 3 (Malik, Rozsival or Ward) are not in the starting lineup?

I don't know anymore. It would appear to me that a guy like Giroux could provide this team with what Ward could.

I do not expect Roszival or Ward to be suited for the October 5th game if they are playing this terribly. There are too many young guys who are READY now. Lampman or Pock could definitely fill Roszival's spot and there is a laundry list for Ward. Malik is a different story however.

So did Lundmark and Novak in their first camps. They both looked good in the preseason games, too.

Neither looked as good the following year.

Hope that doesn't happen again. Never really understood why they didn't get better with another year in juniors.

That isn't to say that Staal should make the team. Didn't help Malhotra.

Excuse my blathering.

I asked the author of the article how the goalies look and here is what he said

Quote:
Renney told us the first day that there was a preconceived goalie hierarchy, but that he would let the competition dictate the final rankings. So far, the hierarchy has held up. Lundqvist has been the best goalie in camp, but not by enough of a margin to unseat Weekes (Renney stressed that Henrik has never played on an NHL-size rink until this week). Montoya is not playing well enough to beat out Lundqvist, so he will go to Hartford with Holt. I don't know where Danny ends up -- after his knee injury today, the general feeling is, unfortunate as it may be, he should not jeopardize his insurance settlement and give up hockey.
edit- Just noticed the author is now a poster, thanks again Dubi for the info.

Seems like some of the sucky players are just that. Maybe this will give those that really want to play the incentive to play and see if they are NHL worthy.

They should not have signed Ward or Rozsival...but now it's too late. Make both of them sit on the bench...too bad we cant send them to Hartford.

I'm pretty sure they can still be sent down, but they'll just be paid NHL money to play in the AHL.

One way contracts have nothing to do with where a player plays, just what they are paid. Ward could get optioned to the ECHL--he'd just be paid his NHL salary while riding the bus down there.

Yea we could send them down, but they have to clear waivers first, and when we call them back up (if) they have to clear waivers again.

I'm not sure about that, I saw a article recently that said the need to clear waivers only takes effect after a player has played in an NHL or AHL game--which means players like the ones in question can get sent down before the season starts without clearing waivers. Can't remember where I saw it though.

i dont see why the rangers would sign them to one way contracts if they had any intentions of sending them down, specially before the season starts

these were two players that could've been signed to two way contracts

hey Dubi, I'm pretty sure that's Giroux next to Balej in that bottom picture of yours.

I highly doubt Roszival would've signed with us if it had beena two way deal, and I do not think they will have any problem sending Ward done if his poor play continues. In all the comments made, it sounds like the brass is treating him the same as Balej, Jessiman, Dawes...he has to earn it.

Maybe the reason why Sather gave them one-way contracts is because they wouldn't have signed here otherwise?
