Rangers release roster for tomorrow

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have released their roster for tomorrow night’s preseason game against Calgary:

Forwards: Brandon Mashinter, Marek Hrivik, Taylor Pyatt, Chris Kreider, Darroll Powe, Brian Boyle, Brad Richards, Oscar Lindberg, Arron Asham, Rick Nash, Jesper Fast and Danny Kristo.

Defensemen: Michael Del Zotto, Marc Staal, Justin Falk, Anton Stralman, Stu Bickel and John Moore.

Goalies: Henrik Lundqvist and Cam Talbot

From the lineup, you can see that AV is sticking with specific line combinations as he gets a read on the team this year. Expect Kreider-Richards-Nash to stick for the game, along with Staal-Del Zotto and Stralman-Moore.

  1. Looks like Powe, Asham and Pyatt have another shot at that 13th forward line

    Wouldn’t mind seeing an all kids line of Hrivik-Lindberg-Kristo either. See if they have the goods

  2. No way a 3rd pairing of Bickel/Falk.
    Expect Bickel/Moore

    Expect both Mashinter/Dorsett auditioning for the 2nd enforcer role. Mashinter beating out Dorsett saves $.

    Kreider/Kristo must impress or become trade bait/candidates for Hartford, along with JTMiller.

    • I did not realize we had a 1st enforcer role filled.

      I believe Dorsett has a lock on a role on our 4th line, given his grit, speed, ability to kill power plays, and material NHL experience.

      I was very pleased for him to be part of the trade package that came for Gaborik.
