Per Craig Custance, there is a sincere effort by the Rangers to keep winger Benoit Pouliot. Pouliot was a great fit in New York, finding chemistry with Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello after a rough start to the season. Pouliot went just 2-2-4 in the first two months of the season (27 games) before finishing up the year with a line of 13-19-32 in the remaining 53 games. Considering Pouliot signed a one-year, $1.3 million deal, he was one of the best bargains in the NHL.
