@genetics73 Neill says Glass was another player who was there. I only saw eight names reported on Twitter and in Newsday, so not sure who the 10th was.

@Sniper Turcotte Not necessarily true. Started going with youth under Renney with Cally, Dubinsky, Lundqvist, Girardi and Staal all getting significant minutes.

@Derek Stepan Maybe a tryout. But if you look at the article everyone is referring to it's the day after the Hayes signing and says the Rangers have talked meaning they contacted Malone before the Hayes acquisition. Doubt they're still interested.

@queensbee He was in the has been category for me at that time. Yes, he was a very important piece in 2011-12, but after the 2011 season when I felt the Rangers were going no where fast I would have easily replaced him with youth.

@Nexter1 As @betweentheworlds says below, Nash is key.

@bk59 I agree that Torts deserves credit, but to me the biggest factor in the change of Sather's mindset was the salary cap.

@gravey94 While all true, what killed me about the above five is that with the exception of Tarasenko, who came six picks after McIlrath, the other "could have beens" were taken with one of the next two picks meaning they were likely on the Rangers board. Just frustrating, but the Rangers aren't the only team to pass on these guys as they were all middle to late first round picks.

I agree that passing over Tarasenko is a lot easier to swallow if McIlrath lives up to his potential.

@BringBackBeukeboom Not out of line at all. Appreciate the ideas. I might actually use a couple. I try to use the offseason to recharge my battery as I'm basically ready to shut the blog down at the end of every year, so to be honest I don't put as much thought into content. Don't worry, training camp is right around the corner and things will get ramped up around here real soon.

@RangersForte  Stempniak has way more grit than people give him credit for. He's an under-sized player who likes to throw his body around. Those kind of guys are always fans favorites. Plus he can put up 35-40 points.

@Gianni74 A lot riding on Miller for sure. But I think Lindberg has just as good a chance as Lombardi of grabbing that third line center position.

Reply

@TruBluEsp @KevinTheNYRBlog Not sure I like Stempniak on the fourth line. Listen, if Lindberg beats him out for a roster spot then I'm more than fine with it. Especially since the Rangers can send Stempniak down to Hartford without incurring the cap hit.

@fs2020 I think so for sure. Lombardi and Glass are far from having a locked up roster spot. Plus Lindberg could easily outplay Miller for third line center.

@tgrace5 Actually, I watched him him perform like one of the best players on the team down the stretch. You can see that squinting or with your eyes wide open.

@King For Cup My point is that he's 24-years old and is putting up almost 60 points in a bad year, so the closer he gets to his prime the better he likely will be.


On the other hand, Richards is past his prime so another year from him just means he's that his game is diminishing that much more.

@RangersAndRadio He can still be given signing and performance bonuses on top of entry level salary so money could still factor into his decision.

@DPMohr64 @KevinTheNYRBlog @jasonshyer You're 100% correct that he has every right to test free agency, but I don't have to like it. I bet the Blackhawks disagree that he's not holding them hostage.
