All potential free agents..
These are the Rangers' free agents this offseason (both unrestricted and restricted):
This leaves the Rangers with roughly $17 million in cap space.
Out of all these players, two definitely need to be re-signed (more on that later).
I think the Rangers should bring back Anisimov, Boyle, Fedotenko, Sauer, Gilroy and/or Eminger.
Both Anisimov and Boyle are relatively young players who know how to score, (both are having career years; Boyle has scored 20 goals and Anisimov has become a solid contributor for the team with 42 points.)
Two players out of Gilroy, Sauer and Eminger should be re-signed to provide depth on D for New York whilst making room for a prospect.
I predict Sauer and Eminger stay on the Blueshirts' roster.
Fedotenko has been an excellent veteran pick-up this year. I can see him re-signing in the Big Apple as well, if only for another year.
However, I see the Rangers cutting ties with the rest of the players on the list.
Basically, Mr. Sather, re-sign Anisimov, Boyle, Fedotenko, Sauer and Eminger. Oh, and don't forget to...
