    And there you have it: Chris Johnston is reporting the Rangers have traded Patrick Nemeth and 2 picks—-2025 2nd Rd pick plus the 2024 3rd Rd or 2026 2rd Rd pick for Defenseman Ty Emberson. No money will be retained.

    We must be high on Emberson to give up a 2024 3rd Rd or 2026 2nd Rd pick. Emberson’s scouting report from 2019 dobberprospects says:

    Doesn’t show a ton of offense to his game. If he makes the NHL it will be as more of an bottom pairing defenseman who chips in the rare point here and there but will be useful in leagues that count stats like hits and blocked shots.

    He’s been compared to Ryan McDough, maybe because he also attended Wisconsin.

    The Rangers have now signed Louis Dominique to a 2 yrs two way contract. He will be the 3rd string and play down in Hartford in case someone gets hurt.

    The Rangers created some much-needed cap space on Wednesday by trading veteran defenseman Patrik Nemeth, a 2025 second-round pick and a conditional future pick to the Coyotes for prospect Ty Emberson.

    2.5 million saved with the trade of Nemeth.

    Yeah, according to sportstrac we now have 4.75 mil. But that does NOT Include Kakko, or us bringing up Hajek, Rydahl, Kravtsov( ALL 3 have one way contracts so they have to be on the team or go thru waivers when officially sent down) AND whichever rookie wins that 6th defenseman spot. But it does have Dominique listed as one of the 19 signs.

    I’ve seen some talk from fans questioning why we signed Trocheck over Copp. While yes Trocheck is a year old and because of it he’s played 72 more games than Copp but here’s their comparison:
    Trocheck: 555 gms 150 goals 228 assist and 378 pts 4678 face-offs won, 4305 face-offs lost, 52.1% face-offs pct
    Copp——-483 gms. 82 goals 120 assist and 202 pts 1635 face-offs won, 1516 face-offs lost, 51.9% face-off pct

    Trocheck 330 block shots and 1071 hits. Avg 18:35 minutes of ice time per game
    Copp. 240 block shots and 515 hits. Avg 14:15 minutes of ice time per game

    Note: Trocheck played 148 games for Gallant in Florida.

    Trochek has been a more consistent scorer, and hits more. Still seems like an excessive contract. Hopefully his game jumps a notch playing with Panarin. I’m assuming the Gallant connection, and also his grittier style played into us wanting him so much. Still need to get them a winger now

    Latest: The Rangers have signed Center Ryan Carpenter to a 1 yrs 750k contract. Carpenter played 2 yrs for Gallant in Vegas. According to Gavin Lee of Pro Hokcey Rumors, Carpenter is a fast, physical, forward that can be plugged directly into any team’s penalty kill. Compared Carpenter to Rooney, they are pretty much the same player. Face-off win percentages are 48.2% for Carpenter, 46.3 for Rooney. Carpenter is more physical than Rooney—has more hits I mean.

    Rangers also signed defenseman Andy Welinski to a two way contract. He‘ll be in Hartford.

    I can still see Kane coming if the Blackhawks retain most of his salary. Rangers would give up more though so is it worth it? Maybe if we can work out an extension with him.

    According to rumors Kane has come out and said he wants to say in Chicago at least for now and see how things play out during the season. So he could be a rental at the deadline.

    Getting back to Ty Emberson, this is what dobberprospects Kieth Duggan had to say:


    July 2022- Emberson has been traded to the New York Rangers for defenseman Patrick Nemeth, a 2025 second-round pick and a future conditional pick. The basis of the trade is it helps New York gain some cap space by relieving Nemeth’s $2.5 million cap hit the next two years. The Rangers gain a decent prospect in Emberson though. His first pro season he spent 2021-22 with Tucson in the AHL, finishing with four goals and 11 points in 58 games. While Tucson was one of the worst AHL clubs last year, Emberson was one of their most consistent performers. Interesting fact and possible reason New York targeted him in this deal, Emberson was current Ranger defenseman K’Andre Miller’s blueline partner at Wisconsin in college. Keith Duggan

    April 2021- The Coyotes have announced they signed Emberson to an entry-level contract. He’ll report to Tucson and after quarantining, should see some time with the Coyotes AHL team. The 20-year-old finishes his three-year Wisconsin career at 9-25-34 and 69 PIM in 101 career games in college. Emberson was named team captain at the beginning of the 2020-21 season, racked up four goals and 13 points in 31 games, along with six PIM. He was named to the Big Ten All-tournament team, was an Academic All-Big Ten and an honorable mention All-Big Ten. Emberson is considered more of a stay-at-home defenseman, who is good on the penalty kill but as of right now isn’t someone to get excited about fantasy wise. In deep leagues that count blocked shots and hits would be his main value at the moment. Keith Duggan

    October 2020- While not really doing much offensively for Wisconsin, one goal and nine points in 33 games, Emberson was still a valuable member of the team. He allowed his defense partner, Rangers pick K’Andre Miller to play a more offensive style while Emberson was more defensively focused. His 62 blocked shots ranked second on the team, 27th in the nation while his 53 PIM’s lead the club. Emberson won the Fenton Kelsey Jr./Mike Richter Most Competitive Player team award. An excellent leader, he was named an alternate captain midway through last year’s campaign and was appointed team captain for the 2020-21 season. Keith Duggan

    December 2019- One of the last cut’s for Team USA last year after being part of the selection camp leading up to the 2019 World Junior Championship, Emberson has been named to this year’s squad. He’s expected to play with fellow Wisconsin Badger and usual defense partner, New York Rangers prospect K’Andre Miller. Keith Duggan

    August 2019- After two solid years with the U.S. National Team Development Program, the Coyotes drafted Emberson in the third round, 73rd overall in the 2018 draft. Playing for that program, Emberson was often overshadowed by more hyped teammates but was an important part of the team. He got big minutes on the penalty kill and routinely played against the other team’s top lines. He showed some offense but really didn’t see much time on the power play. Now, playing for University of Wisconsin, his freshman season can be summed up very similar to his time with the USNTDP. He played a very solid, reliable and consistent year, overshadowed by his more hyped teammates like Rangers first-round pick K’Andre Miller and Fylers selection Wyatt Kalynuk. He showed some offense, four goals and 12 points in 37 games, but saw almost no time on the power play. Emberson was often paired with Miller, letting the Ranger pick play a more offensive game while he was more defensively focused. Emberson is a good skater, playing a mobile game but also plays physical, throwing a big hit from time to time. He also ranked third on Wisconsin with 63 blocked shots. Emberson was very impressive at the USA Hockey World Junior Summer Showcase and looks to be a favorite to make the main team for this winters tournament. Keith Duggan

    Seems Emberson may be more than just a throw-in in the Nemeth deal.

    Which is good if we get him as a rental. If we hold onto some of our cap space into the season its easier to trade for someone without giving up players. Thats how we were able to make so many moves at the deadline this past year.

    I think we need to get Chytil, Lafraniere and K’Andre’s contract extensions done ASAP in order to see where we stand cap wise beyond this year. Then we’d know if we can get Kane signed( I think it would take a Claude Giroux type deal, 3 yrs 19.5 mil./ 6.5 mil per to get him signed).

    In other news Matthew Tkachuk was traded to Florida for Huberdeau, a prospect and a 1st Rd pick. He was never a consideration for us as we didn’t have the cap room or to put it clearer, we would have needed to get Panarin or Trouba to agree to go to Calgary in order to match salaries.

    Kakko is back on a 2 year deal with a cap hit of $2.1 million a year.
