Sam Weinman at The Rangers Report notes that Tom Renney put the players through an extended series of sprints today at practice. To which Marc Staal said are "Always a blast." Renney will give the players a day off tomorrow.
Weinman also reports that Renney is still busy evaluating four players (Petr Prucha, Patrick Rissmiller, Dan Fritsche, and Lauri Korpikoski). Renney had this to say about the process...
“It’s more of what we have in front of us, and who gives us the best chance to win. The other side of the equation is if management were to say, ‘We’ve got something going on for that guy. How does that interest you?’ That’s a different equation and we’re not at that equation. We’re looking at these three guys, really four, and identifying who makes our team stronger.”
...i actually like that Renney is skating these guys so hard. This is especially important because the Rangers don't have a bona fide scoring threat and are going to have to outwork and outskate their opponents to win this year.
