Nash placed on IR

October 14, 2013, by

Per Pat Leonard, the Rangers have placed concussed winger Rick Nash on injured reserve. The move is a paperwork move, and it allows the Rangers an extra roster spot to call up an additional forward for Wednesday’s game in Washington after waiving Arron Asham.

It is expected that the Rangers will call up one or both of J.T. Miller and Chris Kreider.

Note that this is not LTIR, the Rangers do not gain additional cap space.

    The Rangers waived a goalie so don’t they have to use one of those 2 spots on a goalie? Or do they get 2 spots plus a goalie?

    Nash hasn’t really looked the same since he was knocked out of action last year by a big hit. He needs to take as much time as needed to recover. I hope he doesn’t try to rush back.

    I’d like to see Kreider here, as you all know. He’s the one I know the most about. My problem is I don’t want him here for five games and then sent down again. I say let him stay here and give him the entire season. As far as Miller, I don’t know as much about the young guys as maybe you all do. Get them to Washington for morning skate tomorrow, or on the train this afternoon and let them play.

    I don’t really care who he back-up goalie is. I just don’t think it matters that much; I think the Marty move was mostly salary. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong.

    Go Rangers!

      Both Kreider and Miller, IMO, need time. This move is a necessity because of injuries and ineffectiveness.

      As for backup goalie, the net savings of Talbot over Biron (if he goes unclaimed) is a shade over $362k.
