The Rangers Tribune:
The New York Rangers have claimed defenseman Jeff Woywitka off of waivers from the Montreal Canadiens. At age 28, Woywitka has played with the St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars, and is currently in the final year of his contract. He will come at a cap hit of $650,000.
I guess this is the team's idea of a veteran defenseman, but I don't see him playing over Tim Erixon in either of the first two games of the season. He will take a spot from either Stu Bickel or Brendan Bell, though, who've both cleared waivers.
Woywitka was a former teammate of Brad Richards in Dallas.

Keys to the Rangers season
1) Marian Gaborik. He has one of the top playmaking centers in the NHL now, with Brad Richards. The Rangers must get around 40 goals, or more, from Gaborik, who would also then make a previously pathetic power play go if he’s back on his game. So in many ways, this key is about Richards, as well.
2) Health. The Rangers had a bunch of injuries to key...

The New York Rangers have placed 24-year-old defenseman Marc Staal on injured reserve, the team announced.
Ryan Callahan, Artem Anisimov and Ruslan Fedotenko clicked from the start of Friday's season-opening overtime loss. And it was a good thing, because the Rangers' first line - centered by top free-agent signing Brad Richards - was MIA.
