Winnipeg Jets GM Cheveldayoff still looking for help up front

Lindberg Hoping Offseason Work Pays Off

This offseason, I’ve been posting a lot about reclamation projects the Rangers might be interested in offering a one-year, low cost contract in an effort remain competitive while staying under the cap.

Booth Could Be This Year’s Pouliot

After yesterday’s news regarding possible Rangers restricted free agent salary demands, the Blueshirts are likely to be up against or very close to the cap after re-signing all their RFAs. Which is a scary proposition considering I still think they need one more scorer. Sure, JT Miller and Oscar Lindberg have the ability to make an impact this season, but I’d still feel a hell...
