There have been no tryout players brought in this season. You can take that in one of two ways. One, you can assume there was no talent left unsigned that the Rangers were interested in. Or two, the Rangers feel they have enough youth to challenge for spots as it is, and they want this team to stay as young as possible. My vote is on two. 

Groups two and four has many familiar faces from the Traverse City Tournament, it should be fun to see how they preform.

We'll be updating you guys as the day goes on. But for now, thoughts on all this?
