Per Larry Brooks, the Rangers have placed forward Taylor Pyatt on waivers. Pyatt has been a big disappointment this season and hasn’t played a game since the December 12 loss to Columbus. Pyatt has just one assist in his 22 games this season, while being a negative Corsi player (42.7% Corsi) with 34.5% offensive zone starts. As Kevin said this morning, it appears that Pyatt’s speed has cost him a lot. His effort is not being questioned, but his execution has been lacking all year. The move likely signals that Ryan Callahan is good to go for Friday’s game in Pittsburgh. With Cally activated off IR, the Rangers needed to clear a roster spot. If Pyatt clears waivers –and is assigned to the AHL– the Rangers will clear $925,000 of his $1.55 million salary. If he is claimed, then the entire $1.55 million will be off the books. Tweet
