6/25/17 | The Rangers have officially not offered RFAs Brandon Pirri, Adam Clendening, Troy Donnay, Michael Paliotta and Mackenzie Skapski qualifying offers. Those players will become UFAs. (Newsday)
The Rangers did offer qualifying offers to RFAs Mika Zibanejad, Jesper Fast and Nicklas Jensen. (Newsday)
6/11/17: Pirri & Clendening won't be qualified, Nicklas Jensen will be qualified
The decision on whether to qualify Mackenzie Skapski is reportedly pending. (NY Post)
Adam Rotter: I thought there was a chance the Rangers could qualify Clendening, he's cheap and talented, but this opens up a spot on the Rangers 50 contract list for someone else. Pirri was never going to be qualified because he would likely accept that $1 million plus offer. Jensen is interesting. He's still young, had his best AHL season and could be someone the Rangers use in the bottom six depending on who is back and who isn't. He's a former first round pick and 30 goals in the AHL is still 30 goals. I'm not sure he could be a 30 goal scorer in the NHL but there is offensive ability in his game.
