Larry Brooks of the New York Post is recommending in print that the New York Rangers sign free-agent forward Vaclav Prospal to add some offense.
"Impossible as it may sound, the Rangers’ lineup in Detroit on Saturday night will include only two forwards (Brad Richards with five and Derek Dorsett with one) who have scored a goal this season," Brooks writes. "Vinny Prospal is out there, a free agent who has been known to provide some pop and crackle, even if he won’t win even a single foot-race; a free agent who was a popular and productive Ranger for a couple of seasons not all that long ago. True enough, he would be returning at 38 in a young man’s league, and might have issues dealing with the pace, but the thing is, he always has. Yet, he has always found a way to produce, last year leading the Blue Jackets with 30 points (12 goals, 18 assists) in the 48-game season after recording 55 points (16-39) the previous season." Brooks adds: "The Post has learned (Rangers general manager Glen) Sather has had conversations with Prospal, who is training in the Czech Republic, and his representative."
