    Mika deserves nothing more than a bridge IMO, prove your worth is hopefully the route Gorton goes. My line stab goes as follows:

    Zucc-Mika-Nash
    Kreider-Hayes-Miller
    Vesey-Desharnais-Buch
    Fast-Nieves-Grabner

    team is still sneakily deep at forward even with loss of Derek but need someone like a Nieves to be ready this year. Andersson signed entry level contract today so clearly there's reason to believe management will give him a shot to crack roster now.

    I know next to nothing about Nieves and had to look him up. Doesn't seem like there is much there. I find it hilarious that his nickname "Boo" is part of his hockeydb entry though!

    he's not going to be a scorer but he is big and has wheels for his size something NYR lack down the middle severely.

    I guess so. As a fourth liner that's exactly what you're looking for.

    I really want Andersson to make the team a lot of negative comments towards picking him seventh overall this year but he's about the safest bet you could be to be a roster player. Kids engine/work ethic is relentless and I really want to see what he can do. Seems like a Kruger with offensive ability.

    boo could take the 4th line job if he seizes the opportunity
    as mentioned his size, speed and skating are clearly needed at center for ny
    boo is a good looking player

    with his new contract perhaps fast moves ahead of grabner, but after the goals from last year we can see why coach will probably go with him over fast

    i think the main issue will be where miller lines up
    Consider APBA Sim Hockey because guys who play shutdown minutes, deflect shots and clear creases build championships. Yet in fantasy they litter the unwanted UFA lists.

    Pirri joins Kevin Klein in Switzerland.

    meanwhile the Post suggests that Mika's numbers should work out to about 4.8 per season and that Mika's brother is his agent now. That could throw a bit of a monkey wrench into the works as his brother appears to be a bit of a pitbull, at least from what I have heard from him. Also as Mika's older brother he should be even more aggressive when it comes to negotiating the contract with the relatively savvy and time tested NYR staff.

    although the development camp is over, Sportsday had a pretty good article about how the boys did

    fyi Filip Chytil, C (first round, # 21 overall, 2017) was the star of the camp.

    Rumblings on the Rangers blueline

    Could Marc Staal be bought out ?

    according to Larry Brooks, there are 5 candidates for the last 2 spots

    I'd rather they keep one more year for sake of depth. Him and Holden get verbally abused often but together as a third pair I would not have any issue with perhaps with some second pair duty sprinkled in at times.

    I agree in that keeping Staal another year also reduces the buy out cost. Buying out BOTH he and DG is a tough pill to swallow after all.

    NY can do far worse than having Staal/Holden play 3rd pairing minutes
