Except for the draft picks I don't feel the Rangers overpaid for Nash, in my opinion only Artie has/had the potential to become more than a 3rd/4th liner. However after watching Nash since he came here the Rangers did not get what they paid for! He is way to soft for such a big man and does not score with enough consistency to warrant the contract or the picks that were given up for him. The Rangers will have to decide between him and Richards after the season but one of them needs to be bought out. It will probably be Richards but Nash unfortuately deserves some consideration as well. He actually looks better killing penalties than he does in the offensive zone which is pretty bad considering he was brought in to score.

Everyone needs to move forward and away from Callhan! Why is he made to be some elite hockey player when in reality all is and all he will ever be is a solid 3rd liner who kills penalties? Get over it people he wasn't going to take this team and organization to a Cup. He is history so the Rangers don't need him back they need to get bigger and add more scoring not add another 3rd line player..

Agreed! He was/is way over hyped! A glorified 3rd liner!!!!

Hags needs to be benched! Having speed is great but limited abilty beyond that doesn't help, he has no hands and is a defensive liability. However this wasn't just on him they entire team stunk up the rink! Let say this and start a debate, " What has Rick Nash doen lately "? .He is getting paid a boatload of $$$ and has 20 goals! He needs to be much, much better than what he has shown so far. If he, St. Louis, Stephan and Krieder can't start producing the playoff run will be short nad not so sweet!
I would like to see them sit Boyle and go with Carcillo and Dorsett
1 year ago on Dorsett In For Carcillo; Lundqvist Starts
The players that are playing the best play, especially with AV! Unlike Tortorella who changed lines more often than he changed his boxers and by the way he is haviing such a positive impact on the Nucks!
Any contract the Rangers may sign Callahan to for rmore than $3.5mm - $4mm and more than 3 years will be OVERPAYING! He is a glorified 3rd liner who has never scored 30 goals or had 60+ points. So what are you getting for $6mm? A penalty killer and an occasional goal. But as so many state he is the " heart and soul " of the team! Really? The heart and soul of a mediocore team, so that makes him the mediocroe heart and soul captain on a very middle of the pack team. So I ask again what are you really getting for 6 years and $6mm? Trade him now while he has some value, the Rangers and Sather cannot continue to sign or bring on players with long term big money deals this is killing the future of this organization
1 year ago on Rangers, Callahan Inching Towards Contract Agreement
If Sather sign Callahan to a 6 year deal along with the other mulitple year contracts already on the books the Rangers will be screwed for the forseeable future! The other teams around us are getting better it seems while Sather wants to sign a player with diminishing playing time to a monster deal. The only Cup run this team will make is to Starbuks for a Grande!

Next to Boyle, Nash is the biggest cream puff in the league. They rerally should consider packaging Callahan, Boyle with Nash and see what frontline player or playesr plus prospects and picks they can get back. There is no Cup on the horizon so they need to build on the future.

1 year, 1 month ago on Callahan's Agent Says Asking Price Is Discount; Two Sides to Meet This Week
With Callahans diminished role now I cant see paying him more than $3mm-$4mm tops for 3 years maybe 4.max. He has the potential to sustain more and more injuries and let's face it the older he gets the less he will be able to do. They can't Let him walk and not get an asset back. Trade him now!
a asset while the Rangers still can.
If he came here at $7.5mm to be an assist guy he has failed miserably at that as well. He really hasn't helped Nash and gabby did nothing with him ( or anyone else) so where is the bang for the puck? The Rangers should by hm out and move in a differnt direction especiily with what Brassard has shown so far he can easily become the #1 or 2 center depending on wher eyou place Stephan.
1 year, 11 months ago on Despite Struggles, Richards Has Been a Pro
If he never comes back the Rangers will be better off for it!
10 goals at $7.5mm? is bad! And the 3 last night were the luckiest 3 goals scoed you will ever see, 2 off skates and 1 the goalie just plain missed.
Anyone who does not like this deal becasue of draft picks is delusional! You have a established NHL player as opposed to a huge maybe, a prayer and a wish. that;s what a second or third pick is. Can anyone name a prospect the Rangers could have drafted with any of those picks that will be NHL ready in 1, 2 or even 3 years? Probably not. Let's give this chance and see what happens. The back of Clowe's card says he will have a impact on offense and provide the toughness this team severerly lacks.

Anyody notice hoow the players DID NOT mention in theer statement that they are 100% behind their beloved cocah? Besides most fans know there was no love lost between Avery & Callahan.

2 years ago on Rangers 0, Canadiens 3
No Prust is NOT worth $2.5mm! Not with the cap going down next year. e bring toughness and PK ability but tat's not worth the price in the cap environment. Let's face most fans wanted Feds out of here and Dubi and AA went for Nash so how is it Sathers fault? Maybe the coach needs to adapt to the tallent leve he has and change his game plan instead of playing the same dump and chase with the most skilled team he has since he'e been here.

I agree but the genius behind the bench ses it differently
2 years ago on Is Clowe on His Way to New York?
And the other 60% are just idiots!
MAybe we can get LArry Robinson, great PP coach, the Sharks are #1 in the league. He is well respected as a Hall of Famer.and apparently knows about defense as well as offense. The Rangers should target him.
I'm a ig Avery fan as well an feel he was mistreated by Tortorella, and I'm not a fan of the coach. I don't think Sean have said what he did but he probably is right. The players are human beings first so how much of Tortorella crap can they take before they just say to themselves the hell with this guys shit and dont put forth the effort. Becasue at times it doesn't matter what they do, take a penalty, lose the puck and your ass is benched. Time for this genius coach to go!
We once had a player or 2 who would get get revenge in their on way, one was Prust who ran away for the BIG BUCS and he other was Sean Avery who got run out of town by the coach. Now we are a bunch of girl scouts! We gvie he cookies away
2 years ago on Revenge on Pacioretty?
Maybe Zuc can take on Pacioretty if Asham gets benched! No one else wil!
Talk about a 10 year old CUP and being nominated for the Jack Adams. So Fucking what! This is now i's this year not last year's over achievers or the Lightining from 10 years ago. Thii guy cannot coach this group, a coach s supposed to put the team in position to win, i's not happening. Its a combinatin of the players not playing well and the coach's inability to be creative and to adjust and adapt to in game changes. You can't get rid of all the players so it's time for Tortorella to go.

I'm not suggesting passive play at all what I;m saying is collectively they just aren't that good and the fans expectations were and are way above their abilities.
2 years ago on Senators 3, Rangers 0
This team for the most part of Hank and 19 other guys. Yes Nash and Stepan have played well but without Hank they maybe almost winless!
I really find it hard to beleive that Dubinsky, Feds, AA and Prust are the difference in this team. In reality I know the team wasn't as good as their record lst year indicates and although those players did bring some grit it isn't the difference between last year and now. The truth is they really weren't that good it was Hank and the shootout.
The genius behind the bench blamed the Rangers play on the fact they lost some " grinders" to the Nash trade and free agency! If those 4 players who scored about 20 goals among them are the reason this team isn't playing well then the problem is much deeper that we've been seeing!
Sometimes the best trades are the ones you DON"T make!

Who is going to give up all that for a guy that stopped scoring?
Best game of the year! Keep these lines together and kepp Tortorella muffled! He doesn't need to change anything fo rnow.
2 years ago on Rangers 5, Flyers 2
I finally figured out how the genius behind the bench puts the lines together. He puts all the names in the Broadway Hat throws the names up in the air and any three names that touch when they land are the opening lines for the night!!!!!!
2 years ago on Rangers @ Flyers (Game 32)
As much as I want to see young talented players on the Rangers, do we really want to go back to the days of the " SMURFS " ? Unless the Rangers get tougher these players will get abused in the NHL. We little size and toughness so this can become a problem. Then again with the minutes Tortorella will probably give it wouldn't be a issue.
