Adding D Depth
The Rangers picked up defenseman Brian Fahey today (the guy doubled over picking off the Penguin in the picture).
Fahey has been a career AHL player so he is sure to be pegged for Hartford but I think he also could get consideration for the Rangers' seventh defenseman spot. Howlings sees him as Hutch's replacement with the Pack as an offensive blueliner with experience. Fahey's numbers fall well short of Hutch's but he is better in his team's zone.
Illegal Curve calls Fahey "a character player, who leads by example and is extremely tough."
Can't go wrong there ...
