Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog does an outstanding job recapping the day and starts by offering quotes from Glen Sather on the waiving of Todd White and Tim Kennedy...
"Let's say somebody's got a cap problem, and they put a real good player on waivers tomorrow, then we have the room to take a real good player," Sather said. "Maybe in a different position -- maybe you're looking at a defenseman that could be there, somebody can't afford to keep him. Then, by opening up this space, we would have room to absorb it. It's just giving us a chance to do something like that, to exercise an option."
If the players clear waivers, Sather explained that the Rangers would have 30 days to send them to the minors.
...this obviously makes a lot of sense.
Spector also reports that John Tortorella said Erik Christensen is the #1 center, MDZ received fighting lessons from Brandon Prust, Derek Stepan is changing his number from 57 to 21 which he wore in college and that Derek Boogaard hasn't heard from the NHL regarding his spear of Ottawa's Chris Neil on Saturday night.
...would love to see MDZ throw down this season.
