That would put the Rangers at 13 forwards, 7 defense and 2 goalies.
Vigneault said that the Rangers could technically squeeze eight defensemen under the cap but that would hinder their ability to acquire players later in the season. (Gross)

Raphael Diaz has a cap hit of $700,000 and Dylan McIlrath $600,000. (Hockey's Cap)
If the Rangers keep Diaz and send Tanner Glass down the team would have $1,000,500 in cap space, if they keep McIlrath and send Glass down the team would have $1,100,500 in cap space. (Hockeys Cap)
Sending down Glass would keep $500,000 of his cap hit on the payroll.
