Analyzing Potential Amnesty Buyouts For The New York Rangers

As the NHL and NHLPA finalize the new CBA it seems a virtual certainty that an amnesty buyout - the ability to buyout a player's contract with no cap penalty - will be part of it. In fact, it is likely that each team will have two at their disposal for the next two summers. So while teams are going to have to wait until the offseason to utilize their amnesty buyout(s), it'...

Missing Michael Sauer

It’s amazing how quickly someone becomes an afterthought in this league. When Michael Sauer went down with his concussion, it seemed the world had ended. Marc Staal was still out, Sauer was out, and in the following week Jeff Woywitka and Steve Eminger would both suffer injuries. The Rangers were forced to rely on unknown Stu Bickel to play regular minutes to fill out the blue...

Twitter Bag: Stu Bickel, the powerplay, and more

  Q: Why is Stu Bickel playing still? Wouldn’t Jeff Woywitka or Steve Eminger have a better effect? A: It’s tough to really say why Bickel is still in the lineup. He played better on Saturday with double the normal amount of ice time, but his usual three minutes don’t really give him an opportunity to be a difference maker. Tortorella likes him because of his physical ability...

Quick injury and lineup notes

Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers have some good news in the injury department. Artem Anisimov was skating this morning at the optional skate. Although he is unlikely to play tonight, it’s a good sign to see him skating, it means his shoulder injury isn’t serious. Along with Anisimov, Gross states that John Scott (unsurprisingly), Anton Stralman, and Jeff Woywitka will be the other...

Per the AHL transaction page, both Wojtek Wolski and Jeff Woywitka have been recalled following their two-week conditioning stints. Both guys got into six games with the Whale, with Wolski scoring three goals. He should step right back into the lineup tomorrow with Ruslan Fedotenko banged up, but Woywitka will probably have to sit on the sidelines a little longer. With any luck,...
