The New York Rangers have confirmed that they will not sign Tomas Kaberle.
Kaberle reportedly received an offer, but it would have involved staying in AHL Hartford and he didn't want to go down that road. He had already played two games with the minor league team on an AHL tryout agreement and he practiced with the Rangers before that. If Kaberle is done in the NHL, then he will finish with 87 goals and 563 points in 984 career games. Nov 17 - 2:52 PM

Tomas Kaberle apparently isn't rushing the New York Rangers to make a decision regarding possibly signing him.

Tomas Kaberle will travel with the Rangers to Toronto so that he can continue to practice with them.

Kaberle hasn't signed with New York and it sounds like that won't change in the very near future. "I'm here on tryout, for now I'll just practice with the team and take it day by day," Kaberle said. "There are a lot of guys hurt so I'll do my best to fill the role and whatever they need and do my best." Kaberle participated in the Devils' training camp, but didn't make the team's opening game roster.

Unrestricted free agent Tomas Kaberle practiced with the Rangers on Friday.
