Are these the 2012-13 New York Rangers?

The Rangers signing Anton Stralman yesterday, and all this cooky talk about Shane Doan wanting four years (I haven’t seen anything substantiating it, but you keep hearing it, and teams like Detroit are dropping out) and Alex “The Invisible Man” Semin landing in Carolina, makes me wonder.

Is this it for the Rangers? Are they done making their summer moves? Maybe there’s something minor coming still? Or maybe they’re working on a trade? I don’t know.

But it got me thinking.

Nash, Richards, Gaborik (when the season starts around Thanksgiving or later), Callahan, Stepan, Kreider, Hagelin, Boyle, Pyatt, Asham, Rupp, Halpern.

Girardi, McDonagh, Staal, Del Zotto, Stralman, Bickel.

Lundqvist, Biron.

That’s 12 forwards, six defensemen, two goalies. That’s a lineup on any given night. Now, add in that one or two kids might make the opening-night roster (especially if it miraculously starts before Gaborik is healthy), or that Micheal Haley might be up and down, especially when the Rangers play the Patrick Division teams.

Am I forgetting somebody?

This could be it. This could be the roster for 2012-13.

Are you OK with that?

Thoughts?

I have at least one more Guest Blog backed up, and a few people who volunteered but haven’t delivered yet. Still, we’ve got a lot of days to fill up between now and the lockout, er, I mean, training camp, and I have some vacation time coming. So if anybody wants to write about Rick Nash, about the coming season, about the lineup, the power play, or whatever, please let me know at rcarpini@lohud.com. The more the merrier.
