My personal opinion is that because Torts knows him, he is offering him a camp invite as a personal favor. Fedotenko can show the Rangers (and other teams) he still has what it takes to contribute. From it I expect 3 scenarios:

A) He plays well, supplants Boyle or White or whoever on the Rangers roster
B) He plays okay, motivates some of the kids, and signs with a different club
C) He plays okay, doesn't get another offer, and signs a 1 way deal with the Rangers to mentor the youth in Hartford and get more money then other teams would be willing to give to an AHL player

I am fine with any of the above.

This brings up a point that the owners want to emphasize when they negotiate the new CBA: Have the ability to utilize 2 way contracts more effectively with veteran players.

No way plus/minus is the wost stat in hockey, in my mind it is a huge stat but in the long term not game or games but season or seasons.

You know the Amtrak from Hartford to Penn Station is going to packed with 3rd Line NHL'ers for months.

I'm surprised the Isles arent interested in him.
Not sure how you can say that definitively.

We won't know what kind of chemistry these guys will have with each other until it happens.

weve got like 100 forwards coming to camp. this makes no sense whatsoever. another guy who at best plays a 3rd line role. perfect.

perhaps torts didnt watch any of his game last year, especially when the tank was wearing a suit many nights in the pressbox.

horrid doesnt fully express the level of awfulness that he displayed last year for the pens.
