Rangers announce roster cuts

Dan Rosen of NHL.com is with the Rangers on their European tour

Quote:
Rangers will be announcing cuts today. My guess is no real surprises, but curious to see if both Erixon and Del Zotto made it. Guessing no.

Quote:
The Rangers probably have to keep eight of the 10 d-men here, though, what with the uncertainty surrounding Staal and Sauer.

Quote:
I'd be blown away if the forwards heading home aren't Weise, Bourque, Hagelin, Newbury and Mitchell.

Quote:
That's not to say one extra forward won't be going home, too. It's a matter of does Tortorella want 13 or 14.

Quote:
Scott Stajcer will remain as the third goalie for insurance purposes. He'll be gone when the team returns to North America.

These are Rosen's thoughts but he can be somewhat of a dick at times.

Send Dylan McIlrath and Stu Bickel home. Moose Jaw has already started their season.

8 defenders
Sauer, McD, Girardi, Erixon, MDZ, Bell, Eminger, Bickell staying would be my guess
Staal at home

McIllWrath and Parlett sent home

15 fwds
Wolski, Richards, Gaborik, Dubi, Anisimov, Cally, Feds, Stepan, MZA, Prust, Boyle, Rupp, Avery, Christ and Mitchell stay

Weise, Bourque, Hagelin & Newbury sent home would be my guess

If they now already cut down the forwards to less than 15 players - it might get interesting. Maybe they send down Mitchell (not waiver exempt). Either/both of EC and Avery might be waived or traded. Time will tell. If MZA sticks, then both Avery & EC cannot be on the team due to cap purposes. That simple.

Bourque looked great last night and McIlrath looked good as well. If 2 d-men are cut I'd say it will be Bickell and Parlett.

I'd like to see more of Bourque. Hagelin is definitely AHL bound. Mitchell and Newbury both played well last night but I would have to think they are AHL bound as well. Weise didn't really stand out. For forwards I'd say Hagelin, Weise, Mitchell, and Newbury are sent down.

Truth to be told, if we end up in a situation were we either can keep Wolski or Avery and Chrisensen, right now I don't think thats an hard decision. Wolski goes. He has been one of the worst players all preseason.

Like offensively he is good enough. But he does nothing, and then a little less, on a shift by shift basis. In no way is he reliable in terms of making the small plays and getting the job done. Do we want Richards and Gabby spending a full season covering defensively for this bum? We do we sign a player like Richards or Gabby, and then tell them to become Ruslan Fedentenko because we have no other option then to play them with a LW who needs to have a baby sitter defensively?

Zucc has been heads and shoulders above Wolski, Avery and Christensen all pre-season. No way should he even be in the debate of getting cut.

Torts might think diffrently. But I just don't think Wolski has been good enough. Christensen is not worthless as a spare part. Avery has some value as a verstaile grinder.

Will never happen. Not that your reflections over the dismal preseason of Wolski might not be correct. But just not gonna happen. I think at least...

Yea, Del Zotto is a lock right now, IMO.

But Erixon, I feel like Torts wants around even if he isn't 100% ready.

I think, and I could be wrong, that Torts would rather deal with the growing pains from a 20 and 21 year old then to deal with average-below average vets making mistakes.

And I feel Bourque has played well enough in camp that he deserves a spot on the 4th line. Rupp doesn't need to play 82 games. Bourque would provide good energy and defense.

Assuming Avery and Christensen are gone.

Similar to what they did last year with Sauer and McDonagh.

Exactly.

Just reading into the quotes from Torts all camp about how he wants a couple of young guys to make the team.

Bourque and Erixon would give us two rooks. One forward and one defenseman.

Now that final cuts are coming, im pulling for an underdog: Bourque. I just love his attitude and the way he plays. He reminds me of Callahan.

A rookie as the extra forward/defenseman really makes no sense. Those guys should be playing hockey to improve, not watching hockey from the crowd. I could see Erixon making it as the 6th defenseman with Eminger sliding to the 7th spot, but I cannot envision Bourque making it as one of the top 12 forwards--as such, he's Hartford bound.

If he plays well in Hartford, his presence in the NHL can be revisited when an injury opens up a spot.

Erixon was better last night, but hes looked downright bad for most of training camp up until yesterday. well, maybe bad is a little too extreme, but he's hardly stood out positively. He looked more at home on the bigger ice last night.

Smart kid, i think he needs a bit of time in the A.

I was inferring that he be on the 4th line with Boyle-Prust. Not as a 13th forward.

I agree, can't have guys that have futures be used as spares.

I would never suggest that.

I just can't see him taking Fedotenko or Rupp's spot in the starting 12.

I think the right thing would be for Erixon to develop a bit in the AHL.

But, from Torts' comments about him all camp, I get a feeling he's going to stick.

I dont think Torts has patience for bubble vets making the same mistakes a rook would.

And, you're basing this on the premise that Rupp will sit, which I believe is unfounded. The Rangers targeted Rupp this off-season, and know what he brings in terms of physicality. He's not a bubble player like Avery or Christensen. He will dress on a nightly basis.

Bickel and Bell don't inspire much confidence if Staal is out.

so predicted upfront. If the roster stays as is and assume Bell makes it as the 7th D can they fit both EC and Avery under the cap?

Still think they will make a minor move for a Dman after seeing what's available on waivers or in a minor trade

Seems like Erixon needed more time to develop but not worried I think he can pull a McD this yr
