The New York Rangers held their final press availability yesterday after cleaning out their lockers and starting the offseason in earnest and, while he wouldn't address his plans specifically, all signs are pointing to a departure for forward Ryan Strome.
Strome, of course, is a pending free agent and after putting up a career high 21 goals and 54 points he looks like he'll hit the jackpot this offseason. Mollie Walker of The New York Post reports that Strome "just shook all of our hands as he left the press conference room. Thanked us all."
Does that sounds like the actions of a guy who'll be seeing them next September?
If indeed Strome leaves via free agency it would be in line with previous reports from other NHL insiders like Elliotte Friedman and Frank Seravalli.
