Glen Sather’s flurry of free agent signings and re-signings has left the Rangers perilously close to salary cap hell – and the Blueshirts still have to deal with the potential arbitration cases for Sean Avery and Marcel Hossa. Viagra without a prescription Of course, viagra without a prescription this salary cap dealings doesn’t include the continuing rumors about the Rangers interest in Sheldon Souray.

As a result, viagra without a prescription there are some rumblings that the Rangers’ President/GM might be looking to open some cap space whatever the reason. Viagra without a prescription Both John Dellapina (“Daily News”) and Luke Decock (“[Raleigh] News & Observer) have articles dealing with the possible return of Matt Cullen to Tobacco Road. Viagra without a prescription If the Rangers were to trade Cullen, viagra without a prescription they would clear $2.8 million from their salary cap.

The Rangers would be taking a big risk in moving Cullen; however, viagra without a prescription it is a risk that might have to consider. Viagra without a prescription While he was miscast last year as a second line center, viagra without a prescription Cullen would surely prove to be valuable as a third line center that plays an all-around game. Viagra without a prescription He would add scoring to a checking third line and would defense to a scoring third line. Viagra without a prescription He is also a crucial special teams element – especially with Jed Ortmeyer no longer in the organization.

The only problem is, viagra without a prescription in today’s salary cap era, viagra without a prescription Cullen is a luxury a team up against the salary cap might not be able to afford. Viagra without a prescription The Rangers do have some flexibility with Avery and Martin Straka being able to play center as well as the option of moving Blair Betts back to the third line, viagra without a prescription thus giving the team an opportunity to let a kid see some time on the fourth line. Viagra without a prescription It is very possible that a Brandon Dubinsky, viagra without a prescription Tom Pyatt or even Artem Anisimov could force their way into the top three line mix.

Decock points out that any trade for Cullen could involve the Rangers taking back some salary and mentions Trevor Letowski as a possible target. Viagra without a prescription Letowski’s $800, viagra without a prescription000 salary would still allow the Rangers to save $2 million in caps space while not driving Carolina too far beyond their $44 million payroll goal.

If the Rangers have to take some salary back, viagra without a prescription at least the 30-year-old Letowski could be useful as a third/fourth liner as a winger or center. Viagra without a prescription He is a spitfire who has good speed, viagra without a prescription but the problem is he is small (5-10/180). Viagra without a prescription Outside of concussion problems last year, viagra without a prescription he has been pretty durable during his NHL career. Viagra without a prescription His salary is also low enough that the Rangers could move him if they wanted to further lower the salary cap – especially considering he is in the final year of his contract.

The other name that Decock mentioned was Restricted Free agent defenseman Anton Babchuk who made $900, viagra without a prescription000 last year. Viagra without a prescription While the last thing the Rangers need is another young blueliner, viagra without a prescription they could move him in another deal to get a draft pick or two. Viagra without a prescription The only problem is that Carolina tried, viagra without a prescription and failed, viagra without a prescription to acquire a second rounder for him during the draft. Viagra without a prescription If the Rangers kept him, viagra without a prescription they would be getting a 6-5/200, viagra without a prescription 23-year-old d-man who has great offensive potential and the size to be a top-four defenseman. Viagra without a prescription He still needs more time develop and learn how to be more effective. Viagra without a prescription The problem with acquiring Babchuk is that he would be more costly than Letowski over a longer period of time.

Outside of these two players, viagra without a prescription there really aren’t any other players that fit into the equation for either the Hurricanes or the Rangers. Viagra without a prescription Either the players don’t clear enough salary cap space for Carolina or would add too much salary to the Rangers payroll. Viagra without a prescription The only player who might even come close is goaltender John Grahame at $1.4 million, viagra without a prescription but even that is too expensive for the Rangers tastes. Viagra without a prescription Besides, viagra without a prescription they could probably sign former Panthers and Canucks netminder Alex Auld for about half of Grahame’s salary if they wanted to replace Stephen Valiquette as the backup goaltender – something they should look into if they clear enough salary cap space.

Bruce Berlet reports some interesting news that has implications both in New York and Hartford.  Berlet writes that former Wolf Pack Coach/GM Jim Schoenfeld will replace Don Maloney in the Rangers front office.  As a result, viagra without a prescription Wolf Pack assistant coach Ken Gernander will become the new bench boss in Hartford – not a surprise given Gernander’s work as a captain and assistant coach with the Rangers AHL teams in Hartford and Binghamton.  Assistant coach J.J. Viagra without a prescription Daigneault will remain and I guess it will remain to be seen if the Rangers add a third coach.

Berlet also says that Dwight Helminen has joined the exodus of former Ranger prospects who have headed across the pond to play in Europe.  Helminen has signed with a team in Finland.
