The Rangers have also placed Cedrick Desjardins on waivers. (Renaud Lavoie)
Lombardi ($800,000) and Kostka ($650,000) both have one-way contracts so their salaries will stay the same in the AHL but will not count against the cap.
Desjardins ($600,000) and Kampfer ($550,000) are both on two-way deals with Desjardins making $300,000 in the AHL and Kampfer making $150,000.
This indicates that Matt Hunwick has won the 7th defense spot.

Players on the bubble who WOULD need to clear waivers to go to Hartford include Ryan Malone, Chris Mueller and Lee Stempniak. (Cap Geek)
Players who are on the bubble who DO NOT NEED waivers include Kevin Hayes, Ryan Haggerty, JT Miller, Jesper Fast, Marek Hrivik, Oscar Lindberg, Dylan McIlrath. (Cap Geek)
Tomorrow is the last day to place players on waivers before the Tuesday deadline to set your roster.
Adam Rotter: The defense is now set (Dylan McIlrath will be sent down tomorrow), the goalies are set and now it's just down to the forwards. If they place Derek Stepan on LTIR they can keep 14 healthy forwards or if they keep Stepan on the roster they can keep 12. I think Haggerty, Hayes, Hrivik and probably Oscar Lindberg get sent down, Stepan is placed on LTIR and the Rangers buy some more time before cutting down some more when Stepan gets healthy.
