… and I’m sure some of it was sparked by this MSG/Rangers Web site video shot yesterday when Aaron Voros did a kids clinic at the MSG Training Center …
What do you think are the chances this guy is a regular and a contributor this year?
I actually think it’s a distinct possibility provided they have the cap room. If they need to cut $1 million by opening night, he’d be an easy one to cut, as of now.
But what if he has a good camp? It sure looked like John Tortorella liked him when Voros, after sitting and sitting, got a shot in the playoffs against Washington. We’ve heard he has a relationship with Marian Gaborik, his one-time linemate in Minnesota. And he really seems to be a decent guy. Plus, it can’t hurt that he was willing to fight even against opponents who wiped him out last season. That takes a level of courage (some might call it stupidity).
Voros had a good start last season, and maybe too much was expected as “the poor man’s Sean Avery.” But on a fourth line with Donald Brashear? Maybe it could happen.
AFTERNOON UPDATE 12:05 P.M.:
While we’re on the topic, Ryan Callahan and Matt Gilroy are at the kids camp, too, and expected to be made available to the media, so check the Rangers’ site for interviews with them today and tomorrow.
