Ranger Updates: Semenov will not be a Ranger, Callahan only "A" given

Apparently he isn't, this just off the tweets:

@stevezipay:

Live from Pittsburgh: Alexei Semenov contract status unclear; he's in stands watching Pens skate with GM Glen Sather

Semenov deal uncertain: "I'd love to be here, but don't know if it's going to work out," he told Newsday. Russia is a possibility.

No other defenseman that have been waived look attractive to the Rangers, most likely due to salary cap constraints, could open the door for someone in Hartford, or more likely the Rangers just roll with 6 D-men if this can't be worked out.

UPDATE: 11:33 AM

This is from Andrew Gross, looks like Semenov will NOT be a Ranger:

Alexei Semenov will not be a member of the Rangers this season. Team will still look for a 7th D-man.

UPDATE: 11:36 am

From Andrew Gross:

Ryan Callahan is lone alternate captain for Rangers for now.

 UPDATE by Joe Fortunato: 11:42 AM

Talk about being whipped. This from the tweets of Steve Zipay (@stevezipay):

stevezipay Semenov gone; Sather said players and agent agreed but Semenov's wife nixed deal. hunt on for 7th D

UPDATE by Joe Fortunato: 11:48 AM

Andrew Gross just put up on his twitter (@agrossrecord) the D-lines. Warning you are not going to like it:

AGrossRecord #RangersD-pairs: Staal-Girardi Del Zotto-Rozsival Redden-Gilroy 

He also put up the Rangers lines for the night (these are a little better to see):

#Rangerslines: Prospal-Dubinsky-Gaborik Higgins-Drury-Callahan Lisin-Anisimov-Kotalik Brashear-Boyle-Voros

UPDATE by Joe Fortunato: 12:25 PM

Well we can cross Schubert off the list as a possible Semenov replacement, as per the tweets of Ben Thrashers.

@BenThrashers: Thrashers have claimed Christoph Schubert off waivers from the Senators.

We'll keep this thread up until the pregame stuff goes up, and we'll update this with any info that comes in throughout the day.
