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.
