First cuts made, 14 reassigned to Hartford or Juniors

As expected, the Rangers made their first cuts after today’s scrimmage. The cuts were all players that did not partake in the intra-squad game. Generally speaking, the first round of cuts is usually CHL players bound for Juniors anyway, and AHL players that likely just didn’t make the cut during camp this year. Those that were reassigned to their respective Juniors teams: Forwards...

Jordan Boyd (Acadie-Bathurst Titan) These are the stories that none of us like to read or write as hockey once again loses a young player leaving the rest of us to try to figure out how it happens.

The Annual Why Grading Prospects Makes No Sense

In many ways this is the more frustrating time of the year when it comes to New York Ranger prospects as everyone and their mother comes out with some sort of grading system to try to rank the Ranger prospects. And every year at this time I wind up explaining how silly it is to try to grade prospects. It is silly because in all reality the only person who you can ever grade a prospect...

Staying Alive

Michael St. Croix (Canadian Press via Buzzing the Net) Here's the part where doing what I do here is sometimes hard to explain to people because it is not about getting quotes or even talking to the prospects but watching the things they do in certain situations.
