And Then There Were 22...

As expected, from Ranger Rants:
Word coming in that the Rangers are reducing their roster to 22 by sending 19-year-old wing Evgeny Grachev, who had a goal in this afternoon's 4-3 loss to the Capitals and, one day, no doubt will be a top six forward in the NHL, to Hartford (AHL).
This leaves the Rangers with 22 players - 13 forwards, 7 defensemen and 2 goalies. What is left now is what will likely be the roster to start the season. That could change after the first nine games when Michael Del Zotto would either have to be returned to his Junior team or stay in New York for the rest of the season.
