Which Rangers Will Be In The Olympics?December 26, 2009, by
With the Olympics around the corner, and the announcement of rosters just days away, it’s time to break down which Rangers will be heading to Vancouver.
Henrik Lundqvist, Sweden
Marian Gaborik, Slovakia
What, you thought these guys would be staying home?
ON THE BUBBLE:
Chris Drury, USA
Ryan Callahan, USA
Vinny Prospal, Czech Republic
Marc Staal, Canada
I think Drury’s recent hot streak helps him. He’s an unbelievable penalty killer. And a great leader. But, he may not score enough to make it. Same with Callahan. Will he provide enough offense for USA to take him? He’d be a hell of a 3rd liner, though. Prospal is interesting. He probably wasn’t on the radar at the beginning of the year. But, he’s had a such a good year, and he can really set up some of the big stars. Staal is probably a long-shot. He hasn’t had a great year, offensively, but he can be a shut down defenseman. I think 2014 is more likely for him.
Anyone I’m missing?
