Liffiton and Taylor can hardly be considered "prospects". And the Rangers know what they have in Baranka and Potter, so I don't expect them to be there. My guess is the Rangers bring in some undrafted kids for a look-see on defense. But looking at who we have in the system on defense makes me even more in favor of taking multiple defensemen in this year's draft.
Cherepanov (Omsk said he was allowed to be in camp, and im guessing this tourney?)
Idk but as far as Korpedo goes, I know one game does not determine the success of an NHL career, however I can say that Im much more excited about him playing then I was before now that i can see what he can do as a player.
I don't think Jessiman will be invited due to age, Moore b/c of experience and I think they know what they have in him. Liffiton probably won't be resigned. Sauer won't be ready (6 mo prognosis i think).
Wouldn't shock me if Bourret, Byers, Baranka, and Potter weren't invited either b/c of how they perform in the AHL and in Bourret and Baranka's case they are somewhat injury prone so why risk it in this tourney.
I don't know if NCAA players can participate. If so I would imagine Hagelin, and maybe campbell getting a shot.
Last I heard Sauer is going to miss training camp and probably the first month of the season anyway. Baranka is gone for now so the Rangers will be cobbling together a defense--though maybe they'll use an 08 draftee or two. I wouldn't count on Cherepanov being there either.
Goalies for now--Wiikman, Zaba, Lafleur
defense for now--Sanguinetti, Potter, Busto
forwards for now--Anisimov, Byers, Korpikoski, Hillier, Dupont, Pyatt, Soryal, maybe Moore, maybe Jessiman, Bourret, Skokan, Barnes. Possibly Owens, Zaborsky.
