I hear ya on that but I think we have a good nucleus of players to start with and some talent in Hartford coupled with a boatload of cash next year. All depends in how mgt plays this. It can turn around pretty quick with that formula. Since it's sather he'll trade the wrong players and sign the wrong ones as we'll.

Kev I wouldn't got as far as saying he's trottier. The guy can coach and has won pretty much his whole career . The issue is we had the right coach for this personnel of lunch pale blue collar players. The difference between our roster and vancouvers is much different. If u make the dinner u have to at least be able to shop for the groceries. This year is a wash we might squeak in as third place team in division and hopefully unload who we won't keep at the deadline have a ton of cap space to fill out the roster around the guys suited for this system. Incoming draftees and FA's will be brought in tailored to fit this scheme. This year wash, next year watch out.

Who the eff hired this douche anson carter for the analysis? Geez bring leetch back please. He sucked as a player and is even worse as an analyst. The curse of anson carter and Marty biron.

If we buy Richards out 36 mill is a great way to rebuild just need to make sure we resign the right FA players and the ones we don't need to trade and bring assets back and go from there.

Same ole story. Our 4th line sucks beyond belief. That's what separates us from other teams is our lack of quality players in the top 12 if one line is down who is the next line to step up? If both lines are being defended the bottom 6 need energy and something to get the team going. All the top teams have legit players up and down the lineup and we can't match the talent or compete level with our stiffs out there in the bottom 6 especially. Would Hartford guys who have something to play for really be that much worse than what we trek out there every night?
Too many times we are tied at home in the third and get zippo. If we can't win at home we r doomed. 9 of next 10 at home we either jump the standings and take advantage or bye bye playoffs. Bunch of stiffs. I wouldn't be opposed to bring some young guys in too much deadweight. I'm telling u a trade needs to happen. Staal stinks girardi stinks hagelin stinks, Boyle, poiliot.Time to move. Going nowhere with this core.
1 week, 2 days ago on Rangers vs. Jets (Game 28)
Do u want one cup in next 3 years or sustainable perennial contender for next 10 years? These are some tough decisions coming for our franchise and if sather effs this up we can be trouble but if he gets it right we'll be in great shape for a long time. 14 free agents cap going up and Richards will be bought out. We have to decide who is staying and the ones who aren't need to be dealt for assets.
1 week, 2 days ago on Talbot Gets Second Straight Start Tonight
The issue is there is not enough time to test the waters as 1) we are in a playoff battle 2) no such thing as a rebuild option in NY 3) hank is a UFA in 6 months or so.
They also don't want to pay hank 8 mill a season until he's 40

Could work if he agrees to an extension pre trade. Maybe it's what he needs to play on an offensive team who has lacked goaltending.
Paulie this isn't brodeur here who brought 3 cups to nj and has been there forever. I love hank but he hasn't been here long enough and has not won squat on Broadway yet. We can spin this anyway we want. The fact is hank hasn't own anything. We anointed Henrik the king based on what ?
And cap will go up. We have to make decisions that will set us up for the next 10 years. Need to c who is worth keeping between hank girardi staal Callahan . Make a some bold
Moves and get out of this rut of mediocrity and get back to the top of the east.
U r absolutely right Edmonton almost won with a weak goalie a few years back. Howard in Detroit? Crawford in Chicago? All u need is the goalie to be consistent and make the key save wen it's needed.
Hank for Malkin straight up. Painful to see him in our division but who cares. Malkin is a stud superstar that belongs on broadway. if Edmonton could trade the greatest player to ever live I am sure we can live w out Henrik.
In fairness he was pretty dam good before torts arrived and single handedly brought the rangers back on the map with a brutal defense. Malik rozival strudwick ring a bell? Tom poti? Is he less than what he usually is? Yes maybe eh new pads have something to do with that. Does he let in some softies now and then? Sure just like every goalie in the nhl. Let's not overreact here. If he doesn't budge from his demands yes we move him if not he's our #1. Talbot is a nice story but not sold just yet.
One trade away from acquiring that player to get us through. To be honest it will require dismantling part of our core. Who goes remains to be seen but it's gotta happen. Still have some deadweight on this team.

Idk about that looked pretty lost last year in the playoffs
I'll take that trade off chara sits for 5 minutes
We'll against Boston we had 44 shots and 40 of which we're high quality. Shots and scoring chances are not the same.
