The New York Rangers will need to fill out their roster, with more low-risk and high production forwards.

Since the beginning of free-agency they've made a few signings, of Sam Carrick, a depth forward on a 3-year deal. But he won't solve the teams top-nine issues, as primarily a defensive forward.
Reilly Smith will help bulken up scoring, as an skilled forward, and has a playoff pedigree, which the team needs.

The team has some significant cap space, with $8.098 M left and they need to work to sign their RFA's in Braden Schneider and Ryan Lindgren.
But they will need to sign a forward and shift gears, after Jacob Trouba nixed a trade to Detroit. Find bargain options at forward.
Here is one forward that GM Chris Drury could target:

Daniel Sprong

Sprong is one of the only remaining skilled forward left during free-agency, playing for the Red Wings in 2023-2024 and put up impressive numbers with the team.
He posted 43 points(18 G, 25 A) in 76 games with the Wing, just missing his career-high in goals again by 3, he still made an impact on the Wings offense.
He could be an easy addition to the middle-six as a reliable scoring forward, and is still available as we speak.
Sprong could be an easy fit for the Rangers third line, as a skilled forward with size, which the Rangers were severely lacking i the playoffs against the Panthers.
While he has been on five teams in his career, the Rangers could sign him to an affordable deal and see what he's made of, as he's shown flashes of his brillant game play in the past.
The Rangers could use anothe forward like Sprong, who could be elevated by other forwards on the team and would be and would be a smart move by Drury in managing cap space, while acquiring talent.
