I Leave the Blog for One Day & They Waive Voros?!?!?

Man first Aaron Voros decides to delete his Twitter account now the Rangers decide to delete him.

What's next Erik Christensen turning down a two-year deal that pays him between $1.4 & $1.5 million per. Wait what happened?

Ok, just tell me how Stepan, Werek and Grachev dominated at Prospect Camp today. Wait who?

At least the Rangers first round pick Dylan McIlrath didn't compare himself to the Canucks Willie Mitchell. Please tell me you're kidding.

I may never go on vacation again.

What's wrong with Willie Mitchell? He's been on eof the top shutdown guys in the league for years now.

LI Joe said...

No qualifier for Christensen because of salary arb rights

above is from brooks twitter

Voros being waived isn't that big of a surprise. Even though he is popular on the team, etc, the organization is moving on without him. Unless they intend for him to share a 4th line role with Shelly, he probably isn't returning.

I never understood what you saw in Voros other than his popularity. He didn't score, he took awful penalties every game and he couldn't fight worth a damn. Maybe Atlanta can use him. (I still can't believe they got Byfglien.)

As for Sathers"patience" and "going with ouryoung guys" - we've got NO CHOICE because we've got NO CAP SPACE thanks to him and everyone knows it.

honestly, there is no use to keep complaining because the fact of the matter is sather did screw us over, but it's giving the team a chance to change it's ways, the rangers have always signed guys at the back end of their career for way too much money and now they can't do that, but we have good youth in development, so honestly, it's kind of a good thing we have no cap space.
