Yesterday got a little crazy between the Mike Rupp trade and the recall of JT MIller and Brandon Mashinter. So here's some loose ends to tie-up... - The Mike Rupp for Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri trade will save the Rangers $500,000 against the cap this year and next year. ...so wait, Sather turned a broken down enforcer into a younger, shot blocking, pk guy, a prospect AND saved money against the cap? Officially convinced he has naked pictures of every GM in the league. - Speaking of blocked shots, Powe had 91 of them last year. Ryan Callahan had 88. ...safe to say Tortorella is going to like this guy. - According to the Rangers website, Powe will be wearing #8, while JT Miller will wear #47 and Brandon Mashinter #40. ...while it'll be weird seeing someone else wearing #8, if anyone actually has a problem with it they need to get over themselves. It's not like Prust is ever getting his number retired. - The Rangers have five games in which to assess whether to return Miller to the AHL or keep him with the big club while burning a year of eligibility on his entry-level deal. ...in the salary cap era this is actually a pretty big deal. I really only see Miller staying up with the Rangers until Kreider is healthy so I don't think they'll be stuck with a tough decision.
