    Great news for the Rangers to step in and help their defensive pool of potentials next summer.

    I have no doubt they'll go after him, but I do wonder if the pipeline (and his would-be pathway to the NHL as a byproduct) isn't going to be too deep by then. Especially if the Rangers draft a handful more defenders this June.

    Without even broaching the Trouba's or Karlsson's of the world this summer, in the next few years, roster spots are going to be fought over between Lindgren, Rykov, Lundkvist, Miller, Hajek, and potentially Joey Keane. Maybe Reunanen, too.

    Fox could see the volume of bodies in the system and opt for an easier path elsewhere.

    Probably saw the cheesy celebrations and decided he could do better. Smart kid.

    Passing up guarenteed money confuses the hell out of me. Canes are good. What’s the problem?

    It’s hard for me to understand, so if someone else knows, where would this kid slot in our system?

    He's from Jericho. Which way did he lean as a kid, Rangers or Isles? Wikipedia doesn't say.

    Ours! Like not even an if. We're the reason he's doing this.

    Interesting story that he would have attached to Leetch, well beyond the glory days, when #2 was traded to Toronto about 2 weeks after Fox's 6th birthday and to play only one more full season with Boston post lock-out year. He must've been swaddled in a Leetch onesie.

    I hope so. I wonder if Calgary had an idea that he wasn't planning on signing with them either and that's why he was included in the Hamilton/Hanafin trade.

    I don't think the pipeline will be that much of a factor. They're mostly lefties...

    (age) - Highest experience when Fox is UFA

    Lefties:

    Hajek (22) - 2 pro seasons
    Rykov (23) - Potentially 1 pro season in NA plus 3 in KHL
    Miller (20) - 2 NCAA seasons
    Reunanen (22) - 2.5 Liiga seasons
    Lindgren (22) - 2 AHL seasons

    Righties:

    Keane (21) - Possibly 1 AHL season
    Lundkvist (20) - 2.5 SHL seasons


    Anyone we draft this year will still be a teenager. Only righty on the current roster that may take a spot is DeAngelo. If they sign Karlsson that leaves one open spot on the right. I don't see Lundkvist making the jump straight to the NHL as a 20 year old, so the only competition would be Fox and Keane for the 3rd spot.

    a little Adam Fox tidbit if he signs, and/or plays 1 NHL game before the season ends

    (Of note, a source confirmed that Fox would burn the first year of his entry-level deal without even playing a game as long as he signs before that NHL team’s season ends, which includes the playoffs. Another interesting subplot is if Fox were to play an NHL game before the end of the season, he would need to be protected in the Seattle expansion draft of June 2021.)

    Harvard down 1-0 2nd intermission. Harvard is getting severely outplayed, goalie is standing on his head to keep the game 1-0.

    Can they really trade him now? Wouldn't this have had to happen before the trade deadline? If not, they'll have to wait until the Stanley Cup Finals are over, right?

    trade deadline deals with playoff eligibility

    He can be traded, but is not eligible to play in the post season with his new team.
