Read: Who The Rangers Can Add For Depth

In the NY Times, Jeff Klein looks at some current free agents who the Rangers could look to add for depth now that Jason Arnott won’t be signing.

One player he mentions is 39-year old Andrew Brunette, who the Rangers had interest in during the summer of 2011.

Klein calls Brunette a “garbage goal” specialist and a Tortorella type of grinder, but adds that Brunette has talked about retiring.

Last season, Brunette, a LW, scored 12 goals and added 15 assists in 13:30 per game.

Klein also says that Daymond Langkow, 36, could be the most likely target for the Rangers. He had 11 goals and 19 assists in 15:45 per game for Phoenix last season. He was 44.4% on faceoffs last season.

Steve Zipay, at Newsday, mentions Langkow, former Ranger Radek Dvorak and Brendan Morrison.

Morrison was a teammate of Taylor Pyatt’s in Vancouver and Brad Richards in Dallas.


Adam Rotter: They may have already added that depth player in Benn Ferriero. It’s only one game and he isn’t a veteran or a name, but if he can play a simple game then he may be able to be the replacement for John Mitchell.
