2:27PM: During a meeting with the media today, Alain Vigneault spoke about how the Rangers approach to free agency is adding depth throughout the lineup.
Vigneault said that after he spoke with scouts and other members of Rangers management he has gotten the sense that the team is high on some of their young players and want to allow them a chance to compete for roster spots and go through the process during training camp.
He added that he thinks the young forwards could be the ones who replace Carl Hagelin and Ryan Callahan while they recover from their shoulder surgeries.
Vigneault said that it is his understanding that depth on defense is the focus for the Rangers and that they are looking to add more.
As of 2:27PM, the Rangers have yet to sign a free agent today.
