2:54PM: Pierre LeBrun spoke with Ryane Clowe who said that he isn’t sure what is going to happen with him and the Rangers. He said that Clowe loves NY but that the Rangers don’t have a lot of cap room.

9:29AM: In the NY Post , Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers will have around $2 million in cap space after they sign Mats Zuccarello, Carl Hagelin, Ryan McDonagh and Derek Stepan.

The Rangers are in this position because they have decided to keep Brad Richards and his cap hit of $6.67 million.

Because of this, Brooks says “say goodbye” to UFA Ryane Clowe.

 THIS SECTION is all about Clowe and his future.

Adam Rotter: The Rangers are going to have to be creative and make a move or two if they want to bring back Clowe. The money is going to be tight and the Rangers still need to add a defenseman or two, especially if they do decide to move Michael Del Zotto, but if Clowe wants to stay with the Rangers and understands the position the Rangers are in with their cap, they can make it work.
