Paul Ranger remains day-to-day with a neck injury.

There was some talk that he might play Friday night against the Flyers but he did not dress in the Maple Leafs' 4-2 loss. He is still a possibility for Saturday's contest against Detroit but we wouldn't fret about it. Even at his best, Ranger is not a fantasy asset.

Paul Ranger (neck) may be available to play Friday in Philadelphia.

"I'm not sure yet," Ranger said. "I feel pretty good but I have to talk to the trainers and the doctors and see if they clear me to play. (It will be) a combined decision (on Friday). If I can help in any way I am going to, and I plan on it." The Leafs have dressed seven defensemen several times before this season, so that could be an option if Ranger is ready to return.
