Cant MSL play center? How long until AV puts him between Nash and Kreider and moves step play between hagelin and Richards?

Its believed NYR may be on keslers list of places he would accept a trade to. So much for that 'kesler wont play for AV' talk

For those of you who want stewart youre gonna have to give up something to get him. Buffalo will not trade stewart for 20 games of cally when they can get him in the off season. What are willing to give up? 2nd rd pick? Miller? Kristo? Lindberg? I dont think trading any of that would help the rangers. Sather probably doesnt want stewart anyway. The reason he was linked to NYR was because st louis was looking for a rental and he was the only available player on that team worth it for us. I think some are over valuing stewart, hes a fine player but does anyone think a 1 for 1 swap of cally for stewart makes the rangers a better team this season anyway. Sather can probably get a better package for cally as a rental than just chris stewart.

Stewart and halak going to Buf. I guess that cally for stewart trade isnt happening
1 week ago on Rangers, Girardi Agree To 6-Year Extension
Mcdonagh for captain! Not only is he clearly the best skating (non goalie) player on this team, he has everything you would want in a captain. G is a heck of a player, but I dont think he should be capt. give him richar'ds A when he is bought out.
There has obviously been something wrong with Nash this year and all the ones saying that he sucks and is a buyout candidate are completely ridiculous. A few stats: last year Nash hits per 60 minutes was 3.1, this year it's 0.6 per 60 minutes! Nash career shooting % is 12.5, this year 8.3 (last year 11.9). With that said, Nash hasnt been the same player and hasnt been nearly the player that the Rangers need him to be but there is more to it than he sucks and is soft. It is also a fair question to ask if he will ever get back to the player he has been his entire career before the concussions ( I think he can be) but labeling him soft and simplifying the situation simply to 'he sucks' is completely unfair to the player.

Great work! But I do think your list is skewed towards guys that are currently more NHL ready. I think duclair is a better prospect than fast and allen and I could argue skjei a better propsect than mcilrath but the others (fast allen mcilrath) are more NHL ready at the moment.

AV said he wants to have 13 fwds, 8 D, 2 goalies on opening night, but if the break camp with 13 F, 7 D, and 2 G they can get stepan signed for $3.35 M and be under the cap with callahan and hagelin not having to go on LTIR.
Roster : Nash-richards-kreider, pouliot-brassard-zucc, kristo-stepan-lindberg, boyle-moore-dorsett, callahan, hagelin, powe
McD-Girardi, staal-del zotto, moore-stralman falk
after callahan and hags are ready kristo gets demoted and the rangers call up an 8th D if they so choose. Id be surprised to see stepan with no contract before season because if he misses one game, that's about $40,000 he'll never get back just to hold out for a contract that would have been on the table for weeks.
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Projecting The Rangers Opening Night Roster
Yes that seems likely to happen. Im not worried about signing our RFAs, I still think zucc and hagelin both are still signed after mac and step
8 months ago on Zuccarello Still Expects to Re-Sign With Rangers
The 6.55 cap space number doesn't include the potential cap space savings from asham and powe but it also doesnt include the 1.2 cap hit for JT miller who the rangers will probably have on the roster in the fall.
I think for their cap hits to come off they have to be assigned to the minors. If they clear waivers unclaimed they would still be on nhl roster until they are officially assigned to minors. Once they clear waivers they still belong to rangers unless they buy them out
8 months ago on Rangers With Just $11.1 Million Under Cap
I could be wrong but capgeek has rangers 11.2 under the cap and I dont think that includes asham and powe being waived. Even if unclaimed, rangers can assign both to the AHL and save 1.8 in cape space. Putting them 13 under cap without any trades (although I feel a trade might be coming)
.tBest case scenario for richards is what? 50 points or so? Is one season of that (although unlikely he will actually be that good) worth rolling the dice on essentially killing this core group of players chance at winning anything? His current cap hit through 2020 will handicap the team and his 17m cap hit later in the contract if he retires would be a disaster. I like BR and wish this wasnt the case. I hope he does bounce back, but unfortunately that should happen somewhere else. It's not worth the risk if he gets hurt. It only takes one freak play for it to happen
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Richards Might Not Be Bought Out
Fwiw i think the word on stralman is separated shoulder and a facial fracture, not a concussion.
9 months, 2 weeks ago on Rangers 1, Bruins 3
Nevermind hank and the defense, they'll be fine. Averaging 3.6 goals per game over last 5, they keep that up (or close to it) they can beat anyone in 7 game series.
