As per Arthur Staple, Chris Drury was practicing on the fourth line today between Sean Avery and Erik Christensen/Todd White. Should Drury return, one of Christensen/White will be the healthy scratch to make room. It doesn’t appear that the Rangers will demote White until Derek Boogaard returns from injury, so expect the Rangers to carry 14 forwards for the time…

Fedotenko In, Callahan Out Tonight (Update: White Waived)

As per Andrew Gross, Ryan Callahan will be out tonight, likely dealing with the effects of the boarding he took from Kimmo Timmonen last night.

White/Gilroy Healthy Scratches

As per Andrew Gross, Evgeny Grachev and Derek Boogaard will skate tonight, with Todd White being the healthy scratch among the forwards.

Frolov hasnt yet looked particularly comfortable and didnt seem to mesh with his new line mates in the loss against Colorado despite scoring his first goal as a Ranger. Derek Stepan…

White/Kennedy Clear Waivers; Drury/Prospal On IR

When the Rangers waived centers Todd White and Tim Kennedy yesterday, many assumed that one or both would be claimed, especially Kennedy, who comes very cheap. However, both cleared waivers. Since both have cleared waivers, their salaries ($2.375 for White, $550,000 for Kennedy) are removed from the Rangers cap. The Rangers have 30 days to assign them to the AHL,…

Prospal Out Provides Opportunity

UPDATE: this post was published prior to seeing Tim Kennedy and Todd White placed on waivers. One or both may clear waivers and stick with the team like Aaron Voros did in the past but this clearly isn’t a good situation for the two forwards.  We’ll look at other players who will get opportunities to impress at a later date….
