Rangers Move On After Losing Oscar Lindberg

The NHL Expansion Draft probably could have worked out worse for the Rangers, who were always going to lose one of four players since the guidelines were set – Oscar Lindberg, Jesper Fast, Michael Grabner or Antti Raanta.

Lindberg is the Anchor of Solid Fourth Line Play
