Ranger will not play this season

Per Bob McKenzie's twitter this morning: "Personal issues. Nothing official but I hear he won't play this yr. RT @larrybernier: Any news on Paul Ranger. Still don't know y he left?"

http://twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie

A shame if true. I always liked Ranger and would like to see him play again. I think he could`ve helped Tampa`s currently questionable d-core. Although I`m not sure how ready he would`ve been to jump into the NHL if he came back after a year off.

Damn, this guy really showed promise. He was a good middle pairing guy with potential to be a #2 one day. I'm not sure if he'll ever lace them up in the NHL again after hearing this.

Best of luck to him.

Most odd sports situation I can remember for awhile, just because there's basically little info on it. That said, I respect his privacy and hope he can get back to the NHL someday.

I'm wondering how much of this is injury related, probably more than we think.

Time to move on with people who want to be here. Keep his rights but shouldn't be counted on for anything.

I agree. It's best to just move on and look forward to the season to come.

This still sucks about Ranger.. I am sure it's something embarrassing (well, more embarrassing than the normal 'hey, I'm addicted to <insert drug name here> and that's why I'm not playing).. I hope he makes it back to hockey (even if its the AHL or Swedish leagues... but I would never wish the KHL on him, unless the money is right, haha).

I know he is our RFA.. but for how long? Is there a period(besides age) that comes in which he just becomes a UFA?

I asked this on the business board, since I couldn't find an answer I was satisfied with checking the CBA and league by-laws myself.

He does not have to receive a QO next year.

The Lightning retain his rights until he becomes UFA eligible (in '12).

I've been spending the past few hours looking over old Lightning stuff, and came across this.

http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article...ft_evaluation/

"An excellent skater who was highly rated entering the draft weekend, Ranger fell in the draft after uncertainty over his health, as well as what appeared to be a limited offensive game (he went goalless through his first two OHL seasons)."

Does anyone know what the 'health' concerns were at that time?

The only thing I could find was this: http://www.boltprospects.com/paul-ranger

Quote:
The Whitby, ON native missed most of his rookie season for Oshawa due to a broken wrist.
I'm not sure of the date of this scouting report. I found it odd, at least in the choice of words. There is a list of his injuries on the left side of the page as well.

http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/players/55077/Paul_Ranger

Quote:
Struggles in front of his own net because he's a tad too passive, despite his big frame. Is a little injury-prone at this point in his career. Off-ice issues are also a concern.
Quote:
Big-minute defenseman with issues.
What's that about? I had always thought of Paul Ranger as a pretty laid back guy. Of course I have never met him, but I'm not sure if "issues" is an appropriate way to describe the situation.

I thought this article from last year paints a pretty clear picture of why he is hesitant to come back to the game.

http://lightning.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=485315

It's obvious that he's at a crossroads in his life. He's had a couple bad injuries that have taken away from his quality of life. If he still loves the game and wants to play, I'd be happy to have him with the Lightning. If his heart isn't in it anymore, I can understand that too.
