    Rangers Are Favorite to Sign 22-Year Old Russian Defenseman Alexei Bereglazov

    Don’t know if the Rangers are going to get Kevin Shattenkirk, but there is one free-agent defenceman they could snare. His name is Alexei Bereglazov, a 22-year-old left-hand shot playing at KHL Magnitogorsk. They are considered a favourite.

    Bereglazov went undrafted in 2012, is 6-4, 192 and has 1 goal and 18 assists this season for Mettallurg in the KHL.

    He won Bronze with Russia at the 2014 World Juniors as a teammate of Pavel Buchnevich and was also a teammate of Buchnevich and Rangers prospect Igor Shesterkin in the Euro Hockey Tour last year.

    In the preliminary Central Scouting Rankings for 2012, Bereglazov was ranked as the 34th Russian.

    Bereglazov was ranked 54th by Central Scouting in their final rankings of European Skaters. (NHL.com)

    He had 6 assists in 7 playoff games for Mettalurg this past season.

    Craig Constance on his twitter 2/22 said as much as 20 teams were looking at Neal Pionk, a right handed defenseman. Hopefully we're one of them.

    Right now it's the best way to build up our farm.

    This is a great strategy for the Rangers. In the free agent/un-drafted market, the Rangers are in a very strong position to get an edge on the competitors because it is an extremely famous and prestigious franchise and because the city naturally has a great attraction. When players can choose themselves, the Rangers have a huge competitive advantage over Winnipeg, Carolina, Arizona etc.

    You could argue that the free agent market is the only place where this advantage can be translated into sporting assets since the whole draft/trading system is so balanced and equal by nature.

    Good, sign everyone who we can because our prospect pool is abysmal right now. It's pretty much Shestyorkin and then a bunch of hopeless crap.

    The #1 rated college free agent--Zach Aston-Reese, a Long Island kid just signed with Pitt. You would think we'd be in on him. Maybe it was because he's a left handed C.
