Adam Rotter: The whole year was strange for Klein. He started off injured and never found his game or became the reliable defenseman the Rangers had gotten used to in the past 2-3 years. Klein's role was taken by Brendan Smith and he only really got back into the lineup at the end of the year as the Rangers rested players. It seems more than likely that Klein won't be back with the Rangers as they look to get younger and faster on defense but also free up as much of his cap hit as possible. Kevin Klein for Michael Del Zotto was one of the great trades the Rangers have made in the post 05-06 lockout era, but it seems like Klein's time with the Rangers is about to end.
