Rangers Signing Stralman Soon?

Last night Larry Brooks at the New York Post reported that the New York Rangers were still waiting on defenseman Anton Stralman to inform them of his decision on their contract offer from last week.

This morning Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet said that Stralman is set to sign with the Rangers shortly.  

The decision to send Erixon down last night signals that another move on defense is likely coming in short order, but these "conflicting" reports do not shed much light on how certain Anton Stralman is to be that move, at least short term.  For tomorrow expect Jeff Woywitka to be back in the lineup on the third pair with Steve Eminger.
