It’s Sunday, so it’s time for today’s link dump.
Steve Zipay at Newsday thinks that the Rangers youth movement is on hold because the Rangers cut Carl Hagelin and Ryan Bourque yesterday. I am inclined to disagree here. There is a ton of youth on the team already, and you don’t just put youth on the team just to do it. The Rangers are adding Mats Zuccarello full time, isn’t that enough for this year on a roster where no one really played themselves on to the team?
Jess Rubenstein at Prospect Park has an update on J.T. Miller, who is currently playing with the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL. Miller finished with a goal and an assist in his Whalers debut, including scoring the game winner.
This post is a little old, but Michael Gleich of Bleeding All Blue checked out the battle for the final forward spot. This was obviously written before John Mitchell was cut, but if Mike’s post says anything, it says that even the fans have moved away from Erik Christensen, who is supposedly in the battle for the final roster spot. So long EC, I hope CT treats you well.
