Erik Gustafsson Could Have Leg up to Fill Spot on Rangers' Defense

Jones and Harpur are the only players on that list who are still under contract with the organization, and they’ll both be in the mix for the job, along with Gustafsson, when training camp rolls around in September.

 

Gustafsson, however, may have a leg up on Jones and Harpur considering his preexisting connection with the Rangers new head coach Peter Laviolette.

Gustafsson is believed to be most successful when playing under limited minutes, which fits the bill of a third-pair role.
 

Like Jones, Gustafsson can move the puck and quarterback a power play. Also like Jones, the defensive zone is not his strongest area.

Gustafsson will presumably earn the first look out of training camp, with Jones serving in a depth role on the roster.

 

Unless something unforeseen happens, that will likely lead to the Rangers putting Harpur on waivers in order to send him to Hartford.

The guy had 40 points and played for Laviolette last season. Of course he has a leg up. Riveting.


Moll’s a good kid though. It’s good work for the slow part of the summer.

Yeah.

 

Not a hot take… but there’s nothing to talk about from late July until camps open in mid-September, and she’s got inches to fill.
