@jasonshyer @gravey94 I could see them offering him 3-4 years at $2M - $2.5M. But at this point, he and D. Moore are the same player with almost identical stats. Boyle is a bit younger, but Moore seems to be moore clutch. I could see them either low-balling Boyle or trading his rights for a 3rd or 4th round pick. I don't think they both get re-signed though.

If she can dance in heels, shouldn't he be on skates? That Karina is smokin'! Avery should have totally asked for a male partner, just to stoke the fire!

BTW, how pissed do you think Calky is at his agent right now? He goes from closing his career as captain if the NY Rangers making $6M per year, to possibly never sniffing the playoffs again, but making more money. Wow! Epic fail x 6,000,000!

@josh930 Maybe his brothers are dicks and he doesn't like them ;-) Hell, Eric is the one who put him down the concussion path.

Staal's "value" has already been pre-determined by his own teammate. Despite what some think of Girardi, he is viewed as a top pair defenseman in this league. Staal is as well, and while he may seem to have more offensive production (though he really doesn't) it's off-set by his lack of durability. I could see him getting the same deal as Girardi, but not anything more. Not sure about Stralman. $3M per sounded pretty fair. Maybe he wants a longer term deal. I'd be OK with 5 years at $3M per given Klein is at $2.9M He is a 2nd pair D on most teams.

Great write-up as usual! Looks to be some good potential talent in waiting. What's the feeling on McIlrath, has he improved hi defensive play and skating since his NHL stint? Is it realistic to think he could make the team out of camp next season?

@KevinTheNYRBlog @AL55S So here's a thought...What if they paid Cally and then had no money left over to pay Staal, or Hagelin, or Stepan next year? It's like an NHL version of Sophie's Choice...just not as depressing!

A big game from St. Louis (no pun intended) would also go a long way to ease the pain.

@EquusBiz So Nash needs someone else to feed him the puck so he can take wristers from the blue line?

@jasonshyer @gravey94 Hopefully, it doesn't take too long for you, there are some good looking players on this team and coming up! Hang tough!

@jasonshyer @gravey94 Prust left on his own. I never feel bad when players leave via free agency, and that includes Messier, regardless of the circumstances.
@KevinTheNYRBlog @gravey94 @Bring back Langdon Yep. I just don't get why other teams agree to the trades?
I liked Cally and was certainly a little sad to see him go, but honestly, I never really developed an attachment to him the way I did to some players back in the late 80's and 90's, and not just because of the Cup. Guys like Graves, Leetch, Turcotte, Erixon, Richter, and Messier. If I didn't get to see a game, I would look up the box score in the paper (the internets machine was not as prevalent back then) to see how they did. After those guys were all gone, I never really felt an attachment to any individual player until guys like Hank and Dubi came into the picture. For me, Cally was kind of on the fringe of that. I like him, but he wasn't one of those players that drew me in. It honestly hurt me more when Dubi was traded then seeing Cally go. I do appreciate all that Cally did in his time with the Rangers and there's not one player that gave a better effort than him. Best of luck to him in Tampa and wherever he ends up!
BTW, I am starting to feel those same 80's and 90's connections I mentioned above with some of the players on this team. I think this is an exciting time to be a Rangers fan and I really think the best is yet to come! Let's Go Rangers!!!!
@Bring back Langdon Technically, it was the rights to Messier. Everyone knew he was retiring after the '03-'04 season. Rangers traded his rights in June 2004, then the lock-out cancelled the next season and he retired in September 2005, officially. But yes, that pick became Cally. Never quite understand moves like that, but I guess San Jose had its reasons.
I actually think he's got top 6 potential as a wing or 2nd line center. Depends in what he shows the rest of this year and in camp. If he's ready, it makes guys like Step and Brass expendable.
4 days, 1 hour ago on Tying Up St. Louis for Callahan Loose Ends
@Ranger Dave @gravey94 Well, I don't think they trade Brassard or Stepan unless they sign Stastny. Although is they do target Stastny, I think it signals they are not going to go for size in the bottom 6 like a Bolland. I also think it all depends on what happens in the playoffs. If they get bullied out in the 1st or 2nd, then I think they trade Stepan or Brassard and go after Bolland. I think the acquisition of St. Louis means Richards is not bought out. Personally, I think I would not re-sign Boyle, get rid of Dorsett and Carcillo, and maybe even not sign Pouliot. Then try to get a winger with size for the 3rd line and some good energy guys for the 4th. I'd keep Moore because I don't think you can ask for much more than he's given from a 4th line center. I'd give Haley a shot too. That's without much thought put into the cap and players available.

@shoot_the_goalie @gravey94 @Ranger Dave I thought I heard somewhere that Pittsburgh wasn't going to go after him because they had other kids coming in. Not sure if that's true though.

@Ranger Dave A #1 Center would be fantastic. But I'm not so sure Paul Stastny is that guy. He looked like it his first few years in the league, but the last 3 his production has been more of a #2. He's only 3 points ahead of Richards this year. So is his "prime" going to be a 50+ point guy or a 70+ point guy? He's also making $6.6M now so he's going to want $7.5M or higher long term. Why is everyone OK with paying a guy that kind of money that doesn't produce much more than Cally did and has a worse reputation for laziness? I don't think there is a #1 center that can be had out there because there are very few teams that have a surplus in that area. If Nash finds his game and Kreider steps his up to the next level, a #1 C is not critical...much like Brendan Morrison when he was the pivot for Naslund and Bertuzzi in VAN. I think the dollars are better served going after some size on D (guys like Orpik or Bieksa) and then some size in the bottom 6 (guys like Bolland). I actually like the top 9 forwards, but if there are players they can get to upgrade guys like Boyle, Dorsett, Carcillo, Pouliot, etc., then they need to take a hard look at them.
