The Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch's in fine form as we approach the NHL's pre-Olympic roster freeze, and I think this take on the Rangers' roster situation is important to spotlight given the fact that Ryan Callahan's status is stealing the show...
All eyes are on the Rangers. Forwards Ryan Callahan, Brian Boyle, Benoit Pouliot along with defencemen Dan Girardi and Anton Stralman all become UFA’s on July 1. The troubles don’t stop there, winger Derrick Brassard is in the last year of a contract he signed while with Columbus. He’s a restricted free agent and will come up a winner at arbitration if he can’t get a deal done. All this makes the buyout of Brad Richards pretty much inevitable and it also means other players will be packing their bags. The talk is Callahan wants a seven-year deal worth $6.85 million per-season (that’s exactly what Patrice Bergeron got with Boston) and it’s doubtful the Rangers will pony up. The Blues, Wings and Kings all need help up front. Girardi could be a headache as well because he wants $6 million per-season on a long-term deal.
If the Rangers buy out Richards, his status will obviously change the UFA market's landscape considerably...
And this isn't trade-related, but it's intriguing:
Now that school has started for me, the ease of getting to a computer becomes limited to early in the morning, and very late at night. For my absense on the website for the past couple of days I apologize. Now that things are slowly calming down, I figured I would get back into things here on KK. I have news on the Devils bankruptcy rumor, some player who will be joining the Devils on a tryout, and some other interesting bits of information.

What did you think of the hit?
Did you like what Troy Brouwer did, stepping up and fighting Stralman and earning 19 minutes in penalties? Hawks coach Joel Quenneville did.
“I thought he did exactly what we’d want him to do,” Quenneville said.
Watch the hit below…
