Rangers News on Eve of Free Agency

  • Voros, Brashear and Rissmiller who were all placed on waivers by the Rangers yesterday all cleared today at noon. The Rangers are not expected to buy out the contracts of any of the three.

  • Larry Brooks reports that Jody Shelley has rejected an offer by the Rangers of $825K to stay in New York next season.

  • The NY Post has also reported that Erik Christensen has rejected a two year deal from the Rangers with a contract believed to be $750K per year.

  • The most talk around the NHL surrounding free agency, besides Ilya Kovalchuk, is how will the goalie shuffle end up? The Rangers won't be in the Nabokob/Turco sweepstakes or pursuing a trade for Tim Thomas who is rumored to be available, but their main priority is probably finding a backup for Lundqvist.
