What To Do With Todd White?

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Todd White’s future as a Ranger is in doubt after coach John Tortorella admitted last night that he doesn’t know exactly how to use the 35-year-old center who was acquired this summer from Atlanta in exchange for over-35 cap albatross Donald Brashear and minor leaguer Patrick Rissmiller.

“I’ve got to figure out exactly what I’m going to do with Todd White,” Tortorella said before the Rangers’ 3-1 Garden victory over the Devils for which the veteran was scratched in favor of 26-year-old, fourth-line call-up Jeremy Williams, who got 3:43 of ice. “I don’t have him in a spot where I’m certainly giving him a fair chance to show me what he has.

“I don’t know what he is as a player. It really isn’t fair to him. I don’t think he has a ton of confidence in his play and I have a lot to do with that as far as the spots I’ve put him in and how I’ve spotted him in certain areas.

“I’m concerned about his speed and I’ve talked to him about that. But I don’t think I’ve given him a fair shake.”
