Rangers Roster Announced, Kreider & Lindberg to Wolf Pack

So that obviously makes the cuts…

Powe, Bickel and Mashinter must clear waivers before being assigned to Hartford.

…that's a lot to digest. To be honest, with how uneven most of the Rangers play was this preseason, I was pretty much ready for anything and we got it.

…the biggest surprises to make the roster are obviously Pyatt and Asham. While you can make the argument that the Rangers lack of toughness led to the decision to keep Asham, I'm baffled with keeping Pyatt.

…another mild surprise is Fast. While I didn't think he had a bad camp, he didn't stand out any more than Lindberg, Hrivik or Kreider.

…speaking of Kreider, can you say wake-up call? I'm really at a loss with him right now. Does he lack hockey IQ? Confidence? No idea, but I hope he does the right thing in Hartford by working hard and getting himself back to the NHL as soon as possible.

…real happy for Miller as he absolutely earned his way on the team. I thought Powe did as well, but salary cap might have played a part in that decision.

…as far the seventh defenseman, when AV decided to keep Asham that pretty much meant the end of Bickel. And as we've all mentioned on the blog, it made no sense to keep Allen in the press box.

…and God help me if Mashinter is claimed by another team.

…assuming you guys have some thoughts on this. Let me hear them in the comments section.
