Entries with the tag: training camp
This can be said when it comes to the New York Rangers’ line of Wojtek Wolski, Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik.
According to team beat writers, the trio clicked in the first scrimmage between Team Red and Team Green. Team Red, consisting of the team’s potential No. 1 line and others, won 4-2 as Wolski, Richards and Gaborik had a hand in all four goals.
Rangers’ beat writer Andrew Gross reported that Gaborik scored two goals while Wolski had a goal and three assists. Yes, it is only a scrimmage but it is still nice to see a potential No. 1 line having success early on in training camp.
Again, it is very early on but this line has the potential to be extremely dangerous if given the chance to do so in the regular season. It has all the tools to succeed including a sniper, a setup man, and someone who is extremely gifted with the puck.
Gaborik would obviously be the sniper on the line. In his first full season as a Blueshirt, he scored over 40 goals. Now that he has a No.1 center, he could possibly beat that mark this upcoming season.
From Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants:
Of the players sent to Hartford, forwards Dane Byers, Kris Newbury and Jeremy Williams all must pass through waivers.
G: Chad Johnson
D: Wade Redden
F: Dane Byers, Evgeny Grachev, Kris Newbury, Dale Weise, Jeremy Williams, Mats Zuccarello
Released from tryouts:
D: Garnet Exelby, Brandon Manning, Alexei Semenov
I thought the team would give Mats Zuccarello a few more pre-season games to strut his stuff. With that said, however, it appears that Zuccarello was bound for Hartford no matter what.
