Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Rick Nash's groin injury is considered minor after medical exam. ...a lot of minor injuries forcing players home from Europe.

All Rangers have returned from overseas; Foreshadowing the end of the lockout?

Connecting the dots. I’m not one to speculate, I’m just one to use logical reasoning to come to a conclusion. Unfortunately in this post, my logical reasoning is leading to speculation, so take this with a grain of salt. Earlier this morning, Adam Rotter at SNYRangersBlog picked up this little tidbit from the Kalpa website noting that Derek Stepan has returned to the US, stating...

Whale goaltender Jason Missiaen was sent to the Greenville Road Warriors of the ECHL, while the Whale “recalled” Bryan Hince from Greenville.
