DeAngelo had trouble moving on after being scratched
Elliotte Friedman: Jeff Gorton, GM of the New York Rangers, said Anthony DeAngelo played his last game with the Rangers.
Elliotte Friedman: Gorton said DeAngelo has been upset since he first made a healthy scratch. At some point this season, Gorton told DeAngelo that if there was still a problem, he would no longer be on the team.
Frank Seravalli: DeAngelo got scratched for games two and three and Gorton said Angelo “couldn’t go on” and “I told him if his name came up in anything he would forego it.”
Gorton adds, “I felt like I had to stay true to my word, the word of the organization.”
DeAngelo’s agent believes a deal can be found
Darren Dreger: DeAngelo’s agent Pat Brisson said he and GM Gorton spoke with teams to see if there were any trade interests.
Brisson believes they can get something done in the near future.
DeAngelo will stay at home until an agreement can be reached.
John Shannon: Brisson said there will be a lot of interest in DeAngelo.
Mollie Walker: Possible option for the Rangers in terms of DeAngelo.
- Terminating the contract can result in litigation
- Find trading partners
- Taxi Squad or AHL Hartford
- Buy it out in the off-season
- Unprotected in the Seattle extension draft
Statement by the President of the Rangers on rumors of incidents involving DeAngelo and Miller
Greg Wyshynski: John Davidson, President of New York Rangers, on the report that Anthony DeAngelo and K’Andre Miller did not get along and that DeAngelo took the puck from Miller’s first NHL goal.
“Before we start, I just want to touch a little on the misinformation that exists about Tony DeAngelo and K’Andre Miller. There was a fan blog out there that stirred up some things and basically said that the two of them don’t get along and that there are problems. That’s 100% wrong. There is no truth at all. And when people write things like that and others digest them, that’s just wrong. It’s actually sad.
K’Andre Miller was helped much earlier in the season when Tony DeAngelo was his defense partner. And K’Andre thanks him for the help he gave him. There have been some stories of a puck that disappeared at the K’Andre’s first goal and kept it. Not true. The training staff has it, it is built into a plaque and handed over to K’Andre at the right time. So I just wanted to sort that out.
What was said on the blog about a cloud of dust with these two guys is completely wrong. Getting K’Andre into this is really disappointing. To have dragged Tony DeAngelo into this really disappointing situation. For the Rangers, we’re going to be working with the truth, so I wanted to make sure I get that straight. “
