I don’t think any Ranger fans thought contract talks with Anton Stralman would go smoothly, but Renaud Lavoie gives us our first indication that the defenseman could be in a new uniform by next Tuesday afternoon… Talks between Rangers and Anton Stralman are not going as expected.

Sorry for the short hiatus. I’d give you reasons for it but nobody actually cares, so we’ll just skip that. Instead, let’s move on to the defensemen, now that we’ve covered all of the forwards up for new contracts.
