    Smith, Kruger and Jooris all clear

    9:01 AM - 9 Feb 2018


    He's officially cleared. I guess we'll see if he gets sent down or not?

    Maybe teams aren't willing to take him straight up but would take him for a contract they can dump and/or retaining some of his salary?

    Really no surprise on this and yes is he staying up or going down. Sending him down would be a kick in the balls

    @SteveZipay: As anticipated, Brendan Smith has cleared waivers and will be assigned to Hartford...

    @SteveZipay: Smith clearing waivers allows NYR to bury $1.025 million of his cap charge in the minors. And certainly makes a trade a possibility at some point.

    I think I'll be okay with this. I'm not sure I'm ready to write him totally off yet. Maybe this is the wake-up call that he desperately needs?

    I was really happy with the contract when we re-signed him. He must've been too happy with the contract though cuz it seems like he said 'Fuck it I'm paid'

    liked watching him fight Shaw last playoffs and thought he was a solid addition at the time. But he's regressed. Hopefully just a down year.

    The reality check is no one claimed him, thus going down to Hartford to fix his game is the only way he gets back up.

    Obviously coming into Camp out of shape was a huge mistake. Beyond that, the only credible rumors I heard about Smith in the locker room was that he spoke out about the coach discouraging fighting. However the coaches have also been preaching to him about dumb penalties and dumb decisions and bluntly don't feel he has improved those things. Besides the penalties the dumb defensive decsions like not knowing when to NOT go deep offensively, puck decisions and positioning in our zone and defending entry.

    He has a bunch of things to improve. Might as well join the Pack, they'll need the help. Until we hear more, it seems the staff wasn't seeing the improvement requested and once the rebuild was determined the possibility of his contract getting picked-up and the chance to evaluate a younger player likely sealed his fate.

    That remark about fighting is likely true. Brooks mentioned it as well:

    Plus, there must be an inspection of whether Vigneault’s undying belief in whistle-to-whistle, turn-the-other-cheek hockey has created a passive mentality among the Rangers. When Chris Kreider stood up for McDonagh after the captain was run from behind by Steven Stamkos in Tampa Bay in Game 6 of the 2015 conference finals, No. 20 was rebuked by the coach for picking up an additional two minutes. When Brendan Smith stood up for Tony DeAngelo in an imbroglio in L.A. with Trevor Lewis on Jan. 21, he was chastised for picking up a bad penalty.

    This just fucking boils my blood. I was at the LA game. That was the most excitement I've seen at a Rangers game in three years. Of course the Rangers folded like a cheap lawn chair after that. You need to play with fucking emotion to win games. You just do.

    Good lord. What the hell happened to this guy? I understand Red Wings fans didn't want him, but he was really fucking solid for us down the stretch last year. What happened?

    Because that wasn't him.

    Well we did call up their starting goalie and half of their D corps so it's not like their recent losing is all Smith's fault...
