With the holiday roster freeze approaching at midnight tonight, the Rangers made a trio of roster moves to set themselves up for the next week. They returned forward Arron Asham and defenseman Dylan McIlrath to the AHL. They also recalled forward J.T. Miller for the third time this season.

Rangers recall Arron Asham; Return J.T. Miller to Hartford

In a relatively unsurprising move, considering the discussions today about a need for some grit, the Rangers recalled winger Arron Asham from the Hartford Wolf Pack today, and returned rookie J.T. Miller back to Hartford. Asham is someone who can be a viable replacement while Derek Dorsett nurses his wrist injury, bringing some necessary grit and anti-vanilla to the lineup that this...

Cap savings from the recent roster moves

Note: Sorry for no post this morning, there was a scheduling issue. With both Arron Asham and Martin Biron assigned to the AHL yesterday, the Rangers cleared a total of $1.85 million in cap space ($925k a piece). Although their cap hits are higher (Asham – $1 million, Biron – $1.3 million), the “Redden Rule” means that they don’t get to bury the entire contract. Asham...

Asham, Biron clear waivers

Per Pierre LeBrun, both Arron Asham and Martin Biron have cleared waivers. Both will be (have not at the moment) assigned to the Hartford Wolfpack of the AHL. However, Biron has hinted he might retire instead. Can’t blame him, he’s got a family to think about. Tweet

Talbot, Miller officially called up

In the worst kept secret of the 2013-2014 season so far, the Rangers have officially called up goalie Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller (per the AHL Transaction Log). This was originally revealed by Melissa of Black & Blueshirts, as she attended a Hartford Wolfpack meet and greet in which only Talbot and Miller were absent. The moves were expected, although some may find it...

Coach Alain Vigneault skated over to Marty Biron and Arron Asham individually as the Rangers’ practice concluded today and informed the two veterans during their separate on-ice meetings that they had been placed on waivers likely signaling the end of their tenures with the Rangers.

Foreshadowing moves to come

One or both of Miller and Kreider are expected to be recalled today. After Arron Asham and Martin Biron were placed on waivers yesterday, there was a lot of discussion about what moves the Rangers would be making. I heard everything from a trade (no specifics, just “they are going to make a trade”) to a much more rational call up. In my humble opinion, the Rangers aren’t going...

Video: The best hockey fights of the week

The first week of the season saw some decent hockey fights, but it was clear players were adjusting to the new helmet rule and trying to get back into the flow of the regular season. The second week was a big improvement as tempers boiled over and we were treated to some outstanding battles.  5. Sheldon Brookbank (CHI) vs Chris Stewart (STL) - Oct 9 Stewart brings plenty...

Eklund: Biron and Asham on Waivers

It was a surprise to me that Martin Biron was placed on waivers today. I'm not as surprised by Arron Asham also being waived. Chasing down a Rangers rumor now but what I'm hearing for the short term is that Cam Talbot will be backing up Henrik Lundqvist. The move will save some money on the cap for the Rangers. More to come...

Rangers waive Aaron Asham and Martin Biron

The New York Rangers are off to a simply abysmal start with a 1-4-0 record and a minus-16 goal differential so something has to change. On Monday GM Glen Sather made the first moves. Joining the waiver wire on Monday were forward Arron Asham as well as veteran backup goaltender Martin Biron. Biron being cut is a surprise even though his numbers are as bad as you'll see in the...

Asham and Biron on waivers

Per Ryan Rishaug, the Rangers have placed forward Arron Asham and goalie Martin Biron on waivers. Asham, who had a strong camp and preseason, has struggled a bit out of the gate, but then again so has pretty much everyone. Biron was solid in the first period in St. Louis, but let in a pair of softies in the second that eventually saw him yanked from the game. Waiving Biron creates...

Game 2: The Captain returns

More of this please (Photo: Ross D. Franklin, CTPost.com). After Thursday night’s loss in Phoenix, the Rangers have had three full days off before tonight’s contest in Los Angeles. The best news is that captain Ryan Callahan is back, with J.T. Miller being sent to Hartford to make room. Arron Asham will also make his debut tonight, as Jesper Fast will sit. This is because Darryl...

Asham provides physical presence for Rangers

Arron Asham had no illusions entering training camp. “I came in knowing that it would be do or die” said the 35-year-old winger who will join the Rangers’ lineup for Monday’s game against the Kings after having been a healthy scratch for the opener in Phoenix. “I wanted to show that I could contribute to this team this year but I also want to prove that I can play in the...

Asham in, Fast out for tomorrow

Per Steve Zipay, Arron Asham will dress for the first time this season when the Rangers are in Los Angeles tomorrow to take on the Kings. He will be taking Jesper Fast’s spot in the lineup. Asham will skate on the fourth line. While the initial reaction will likely be outrage (How dare this team sit a kid? He should be in the AHL then. Insert complaint here), it’s worth noting...

Toughness and physicality could become a concern for the Rangers

(Source: Jared Wickerham/Getty Images North America) The Rangers are a very deep team this season, especially at forward. They are in a position where –when fully healthy– they have three scoring lines and a solid defensive fourth line. However there is one glaring weakness (on paper); the apparent lack of physicality and toughness on the roster. Even with a healthy Ryan Callahan...

This year, it’s put up or shut up time for certain Rangers players

Every summer since I’ve started blogging and writing down my hockey opinions in internet ink, I always try to use the downtime to advance my knowledge of the game. With no hockey to watch on TV, I try to make it a point to reconnect with old friends still in the Show, read up on new systems and tactics, or dive into books illustrating important points in hockey history.

Who will be the first injury call ups?

Think Miller is the first call up? Think again (Seth Wenig/AP) One thing that we can be sure about next season is that there will be injuries. If we learned anything from this postseason, it’s that you can never have enough depth, because you never know when the injuries will begin to mount. It was one area that Slats worked very diligently to address this offseason, and he did...
