At Coming Down The Pipe, they look at some possible rookies for the Rangers this season.
Tim Erixon, Pavel Valentenko, Tomas Kundratek and Ryan Bourque are some of the players mentioned as possible candidates for roster spots.
Valentenko really did come close to making the team last season. He and Ryan McDonagh were the last cuts on defense and it will be interesting to see how he fares during camp. Kundratek is someone that most people forget about but he has a nice talent level. I think he could spend, at least, another year in the minors.
Bourque is a player that I am dying to see and like Carl Hagelin, who wasn’t mentioned, they could stick around in camp for a while or be players called up during the season. Erixon is clearly the favorite, but is far from a lock to land one of the final two spots.
