FANFARE: TESTING THE DEFENSIVE DEPTH

New York RangersBY: Adam Gavriel

Quantity over quality may prove a necessary motto for the New York Rangers over the coming weeks as  injuries to Marc Staal, Michael Sauer, and Steve Eminger and with Jeff Woywitka a game-time decision, the Rangers could potentially lose four of their Top seven defenders.

In 2010 – 2011, it was the forwards who it seemed just could not seem to stay on the ice. In 2011-2012, it’s the blueline taking the biggest hit. What may be the most shockingly is that besides Woywitka, who appears to be day-to-day, the  closest Rangers defenseman that could return to the lineup may in fact be Marc Staal. Unless you don’t follow the team too closely, which begs the question, “Why are you reading this?” But I digress, Staal has been battling post-concussion symptoms ever since a blow he sustained in Carolina on Feb. 22 of last season from his brother Eric. Staal, who hasn’t appeared in a game for the Rangers since Game Five of the last season’s playoffs, could, according to the New York beat writers, be cleared for contact in the next seven to ten days.
