Could John Moore Be Permanetly Replaced In Starting Lineup By Matt Hunwick?

Blue Line Station (Steven Carollo) — New York Rangers 6th defenseman John Moore is only getting suspended five games for his dangerous elbow to the head hit on Minnesota Wild‘s Erik Haula.  However, Moore could miss even more time than that.

The fallacy of depth charts, and the Rangers need for niches

SBN: Blue Shirt Banter (Evan Sporer) — Derek Stepan's return is on the horizon, meaning the logjam of forwards the team has is about to add one more piece of lumber. Almost made it a full 10 games without explicitly saying Tanner Glass should be taken out of the Rangers lineup. Well, it was a nice run, though this is much more than that.
