This Doesn’t Come As Much Of A Shocker

By Trapp

“New York Rangers forward Arron Asham and goaltender Martin Biron have been placed on waivers. The move was reported by The (Bergen) Record and confirmed by general manager Glen Sather. Biron, 36, is 0-1-0 in two games, but has allowed nine goals on 38 shots for a 7.61 goals-against average and .763 save percentage. He’s in his fourth season as Henrik Lundqvist’s backup. Asham, 35, has no points, a minus-3 rating and 14 penalty minutes in three games.”

So far nothing has really gone right for the Rangers since training camp. It could be worse being a Devil fan considering they are winless and worthless but they at least they didn’t get smoked two games in a row. With the long Western trip now finished the Rangers come back East to practice in New York and sleep in their own beds for a night or two before hittin the road to Washington. They’ll be travelling without Biron, guy got waived today, same wit Asham. None of this is a surprise. Biron let in and has let in a number of softies in Rangers tenure, and Asham just doesn’t bring anything to the table for this particular team. It’s not right to point fingers right now especially with a team that hasn’t played well at all since the fluke game in Los Angeles. BUT, things will get better for the Rangers.  I have a strong feeling they will turn it around. I had a couple meltdowns after the Sharks and Ducks beatdowns but, the Rangers were resilient in St. Louis the other night. So with that being said, we’ll see what the Rangers moves will be regarding the two roster holes now. Will they give Cam Talbot a shot from Hartford? Sign Johan Hedberg? Pick up a player off waivers for the fourth line spot or just work within the organization? Who knows what can I say it’s beyond me…

Maybe they’ll pull a wildcard and just sign Brad Tolliver.

Would be pretty remarkable if this is how Sather told Biron and Asham broke the news they were being waived:
