Asham, Biron finished in NYC?

The New York Rangers placed forward Arron Asham and goaltender Martin Biron on waivers earlier today and will send both players to the AHL if they go unclaimed.

It's presumably the end of the road in the Big Apple for either player, whether they're claimed or not, according to the New York Daily News.

"This is not a fun feeling," Biron told Daily News beat reporter Pat Leonard. "It's not something that I've had to experience in my career. We'll battle. I came in for practice this morning and I did what I had to do out there and I worked hard. So I'll just play it as it comes."

Biron, 36, isn't sure what will happen next, but will weigh out all of the possibilities, including retirement.

"I've got to take some time to think about it. We'll see," he said. "I'll talk to the family and get some advice from many different people, and I'll see what comes out of it."

A few teams are looking for help between the pipes in the early part of the 2013-14 season, but it's unclear if a club will put in a claim on Biron.

The Rangers aren't fully certain which direction they'll go, in terms of finding a new backup goalie to starter Henrik Lundqvist.

"It's a performance-based business, and the organization felt that Marty's first two performances were not what we expected, and we decided to put him on waivers," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told the paper.

The Rangers are expected to call up Cam Talbot as a short-term solution, but could trade for another goalie or sign a free agent like Jose Theodore or Johan Hedberg.
