The Rangers just sent Tom Pyatt to Hartfordand Bobby Sanguinetti back to his junior team in Brampton.
Neither of these moves are a surprise, although some may wonder about the timing. In other words, why weren’t they just part of the first batch of cuts if they weren’t going to play in an exhibition game?
Simple. Given both players’ potential, it was obvious that Tom Renney wanted them to be part of the team-building activities in West Point, and to skate in a few more practices with the big club as well. Both had good camps, and will likely hang around longer next year. But both still need at least another year of grooming.
