Depth Chart Update

July 8, 2010, by

With all the movement that went on during the draft and free agency period, the Rangers depth chart has a bit of a different feel to it. Added are Mats Zuccarello-Aasen, Derek Boogaard, Martin Biron, Dale Weise, Ryan McDonagh, and Pavel Valentenko. Gone are Donald Brashear, Bobby Sanguinetti, Alex Auld, P.A. Parenteau, and Corey Locke. You can view all the changes here. Remember, this is not based on current (or projected) lines, but who is more likely to make the NHL roster as of now. The Depth Chart will be updated again after camp as the roster dust settles.

Update: I also took the Sanguinetti watch down (thanks Heath). No point in having that one up anymore.


  1. Nick from his iPad says:

    What is your take on Weise, Dave? A lot of fans I have spoken to would like to see him on the team in the near future. what about you?

  2. Dave says:

    He’s going to be a solid third line guy, but he’s not someone that everyone should be clamoring over to see on this team. He will put up 10-15 as a third line guy, with 30 points. Not terrible, but not someone who is one of those “OMG WE NEED HIM ON THE TEAM NOW!!!~!~!~!~!!!~!!” kind of guys.

    BTW, you’re still an ass lol.

      dave i spoke to my friend who has some connections to the team and he told me they expect mza to crack the lineup and the job is his to lose.

      • jerry says:

        and they expect him to at least be second line left wing.

        • Dave says:

          They can expect all they want, I don’t think he’s going to crack the lineup. He simply does not have experience playing North American hockey, and two weeks in the Olympics barely counts.

          • jerry says:

            the reasoning is if hes that good they are willing to take the lumps with him.it all remains to be seen we shall see.i dont see him on the first line though that would be a push.

            • Dave says:

              I want to be wrong and I want to see him on the top-six. What I don’t want to see is him sitting on the 4th line in the NHL when he can get regular minutes in the AHL. He doesn’t have to go through waivers until he hits 60 games in the NHL, so it’s pointless to have him sit on the bench.

  3. Chris says:

    Shouldnt Voros be removed as well, seeing as he was waived?

    • Dave says:

      Voros gets waived a lot, but he’s still with the club, and is more likely to be a 13th forward.

  4. Section 121 says:

    Hey Dave, How’d you make out with the D-man file I e-mailed to you yesterday?

    • Dave says:

      Haven’t checked it out, been busy at work. Will be checking it/posting it tomorrow. You will get full credit obviously.

  5. Section 121 says:

    No worries about the credit – just something we could all look at to get a better handle on the Stall and Girardi signings and justifying what they should be paid

  6. Jeremy says:

    Liking the youth. BTW, I’m out for the next few days. Getting surgery. Should be, well, interesting

    • Dave says:

      Good luck. Get better soon.

      • Jeremy says:

        Thank you

        • jerry says:

          i agree with you on any quality rookie with ability to go on the fourth line they should just plug them in the lineup get them ice time and take the lumps i hate seeing a guy with talent on the bottom 2 lines and that means anyone they call a top prospect,
