Two for Roughing: NHL News and Notes [September 3, 2013]

 

Manadatory Creidt: USA Today

Corey Crawford signed a six year extension with the Chicago Blackhawks for a reported $36 million. What does this mean for Henrik Lundqvist? Probably nothing because of his elite status, he’ll be pushing for more money and a lengthier term, both I am skeptical about. If the Rangers have the cap room, by all means sign him for the max. But for that long? I don’t agree with it, 6-7 years at most. Goalies do start to decline earlier due to the wear and tear on the bodies. But this process is going to be a long one, that I don’t see ending anytime soon. This will go into the summer.

Staff writer Matt Joseph’s continues looking at the Ranger hopefuls for the 2014 Sochi Olympics by looking at the Rangers who have the best chance making the Team Canada roster.

Keep a look out this week for part one of our season preview, as co-editor Andrew Graziano takes a look at the Rangers offense.

Starting September 5, in Traverse City, Michigan the annual tournament showcasing select teams of NHL prospects will be upon us. Then a week later, September 11, training camp starts. Then Monday the 16, NHL preseason starts. You see where I am going with this? Hockey is almost back in full swing!
