LEE STEMPNIAK RUMORS

Rangers Potential Opening Night Forward Lines

Is Stempniak automatically going to be placed with Brassard and Zuccarello? Is JT Miller the best option for the third line center position?

How Lee Stempniak will affect his teammates

Stempniak on Rangers: ‘I think this is a really good opportunity for me’

The Recent Signings By The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Both Lee Stempniak (in on a one-year free agent deal for $900,000) and Matt Lombardi (in at $800,000 per for two years) will fall under the AHL threshold, so neither would count against the cap for so much of a nickel if either fails to make the Rangers out of camp.
