Rangers Talk Cuts

Jim Cerny at newyorkrangers.com has numerous quotes from John Tortorella and players on yesterday's cuts...

Torts on sending McDonagh & Valentenko to Hartford...

“You have to make sure that you don’t force feed as far as their development,” said Tortorella. “The quicker they get down there to play and go through the American Hockey League, that will be the right process to get them up here quicker to play in the National Hockey League. When that will be, I don’t know. But they both had good camps.”

Stepan on making the Rangers...

“It’s a special feeling and I am excited,” said Stepan, 20. “But now the work really begins. You have to work twice as hard to stay up here.”

Sauer on working harder now that he's earned a spot...

“It’s a competitive business,” said Sauer, 23. “You have to show up every day, can’t take days off. But every day is an opportunity to show you belong.”

I'd rather see McDonagh than Sauer. he's more likely to protect the King.

Sauer improved through the preseason but his off games were really bad...
