When it comes to the New York Rangers' defensive corps, the team seems set for the forseeable future.
On Broadway, the Blueshirts have the likes of Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi, and Marc Staal. Down on the farm or in juniors, the team has a group of solid defensive prospects.
Yesterday, a former Rangers' defenseman jumped back into the fold in Matt Gilroy. Yesterday on Twitter, New York Post Rangers' beat writer Larry Brooks told us that Gilroy signed an AHL contract with the Connecticut Whale and that he could also end up signing with the Rangers when the lockout ends.
In Gilroy's first tenure with the Blueshirts, things were inconsistent. He was able to supply some offense but his defensive mishaps and lack of confidence in his won zone really hurt both himself and the team.
After worrying about newly acquired New York Rangers' forward Rick Nash being seriously injured, Larry Brooks of the New York Post tells us that the injury is not serious and that it is just a day-to-day thing.

From NYR, MRI reveals no damage to Nash shoulder, is apparently day to day for Davos...
The last thing the Blueshirts need was to have the NHL return from lockout and have Nash be on the sidelines due to an injury he suffered overseas.
Since I wasn’t around much this weekend, I wanted to get your thoughts on the retirement of New York Rangers’ forward Markus Naslund.
This was first reported by Larry Brooks of the NY Post. Naslund’s time on Broadway wasn’t the greatest as he looked every bit his 35 years of age. As Brooks reports, Naslund was due $4 million in salary next season.
Who do you folks think would be a good replacement for Naslund?
