Rangers Sign Cody McLeod
The Rangers just announced that they have signed free agent Cody McLeod to a one-year deal.

McLeod finished out last season with the Blueshirts, finishing off his season on Broadway after being claimed on waivers back in January. For a team that is rebuilding, this signing does not make a whole lot of sense. I understand having an “enforcer” to protect the young guns that are expected to be on the Rangers roster next season, but they had a guy in Matt Beleskey already in the organization. We’ll see how new head coach David Quinn uses McLeod, but I can’t imagine he has the skating ability or skill necessary to keep up with all of the guys around him come October.
