After first waiving Adam Cracknell and now demoting Tony DeAngelo to Hartford, change has come to the New York Rangers roster.

The question is, who will be added in their place? Whether that is an imminent trade or recalls from Hartford, we will have to wait and see. DeAngelo had found himself a healthy scratch or as the team’s 7th defender on nights where they carried seven defensemen. He was being used on the powerplay, but seeing very little ice time in the games that he played. While flashes of his abilities were evident, so too were his defensive deficiencies.

What might be more telling is that these roster moves and Alain Vigneault being at the Rangers practice make it extremely unlikely that the coach won’t be given more time to try to right the ship.
