@GregB1919 @Scott from SEC 224    I said offer thesame Giradri deal and that I didn't think a 7-8 year deal would be prudent but, in the NHL now, if teams can keep the AAV down, they'll add years. The Rangers are the only team that can offer8. What's i'm saying is, they could use that caveat to keep the AAV down and lock him up forever and worry about the potential injury issues down the line. (see Marc Savard & Chris Pronger)

Didn't say I agreed with that logic but i would not be surprised if they offered a 27 year old former first rounder, their own, a max term deal.


Observation.

Offer him the same deal as Girardi 6 years with an AAV of 5.5 Million. The Rangers could add years, 7 or the max of 8 and maybe go up to 6 -6.5 but i don't think his worth is at a 7-8 year deal at 6 -6.5.  Not with  the Rangers lack of cap space and uncertainty on how much the cap will rise over the next few years.

Offer Staal the same deal as Girardi. 6 Years with an AAV of 5.5 If he's looking for a max year deal (8) at  6 -6.5., i  think you just have to move him. 


I don't think Columbus will part with Johansen and bringing back MDZ is not an option. he needs to find his game, somewhere else.

@KarenMaz its a compensatory pick so the team signing him wouldn't lose a pick, it's just awarded (anywhere from 48 to 54th pick in round 2)  kind of like the "sandwich"  pick for the MLB draft.

@GiveGartneraCup He played on the same line with the Hobey baker winner, 

John Gaudreau , who put up 2 points a game last year. I think his numbers could be a bit inflated in relation to his actual skill set ( a La Michael Del Zotto playing in London with John Tavavres) Kid's still got a LOT of upside but i wouldn't be blinded by his Senior year stats.

@IhaveawaiteratMSG Once he took the Vancouver job that voided whatever contract he had with the Rangers,. As long as he's not working for another NHL team, he can collect from the Canucks.


(That's how I understand how that works.)

Not that i don't like the Stempiak signing, I would rather have gotten Booth for the 1.1 he took from Toronto.

I like Devin Segutchi & Dustin Penner  over Booth but I'd take Booth if they became unavailable and if they could get  him (or the Seguthci or Penner ) at 1 -1.5 Mil. All 3 could put up Pouliot  (or better) numbers.

Let the arbitrator award a one year deal to Brassard. (4.25 -4.75) I haven't seen enough from him to lock him up  for 4 years.


Lock up Zuc at 4 years 4.25 Million per


get Krieder on a bridge deal at  2.5 per for 2


J.Moore 1 year 1.5

@maxrokz @KevinTheNYRBlog @Scott from SEC 224 I would still like to see Dustin Penner or Devin Segutchi brought into the fold. With the way prices are dropping for UFA's, maybe they can be had for 1.25 - 1.5 Mil? 


low risk with another potential Pouliott return (and hopefully not a Pyatt return) 


I'd take em both and let some players (Kristo, Fasth, Haggerty, Lindeberg or Miller) get more top 6 minutes in Hartford.

@maxrokz Ribero is a head case, bad attitude, and some other unconfirmed questionable behavior. (booze, drugs, women,  another hat trick of sorts)


As far as Roy, I think they like what they have in house over him.

The Reaming UFA's will work out something like this.

@EugenePlaksienko @King For Cup he turned 35 yesterday. he's still almost a point a game guy. He makes the rest of the centers better as they slide down the chart .Stepan #2 Brassard #2A, if they aren't in the package to get him.


It's all about what the rangers would give up to get him.


IF something like Brassard, Kristo & Calle Andersson  can get it done, yeah sure

@EugenePlaksienko @Scott from SEC 224 @grublets on ice Ducalir won't be 19 until August, he's got 2 more years of Junior eligibility left. He can't play in the AHL, he'd need to be on the Big Club.(he can play up to 10 games before he would need to be returned to Junior) He needs work anyways


Buchenivich hasn't played in North America and is also only 19. I'd love to see him  in NA, in the AHL or more likely, he'd play Juniors  for a year. (Not sure of the KHL agreement, if any, in regard to underage (20) players) 


That's why i don't think these guys are viable for the 2014 -15 Rangers


Lindberg & Miller I think will contibute to the big club. Kristo? I think he needs more work on his game too.

@EugenePlaksienko @grublets on ice Only Lidberg  has a shot on being on the big club next year. The other 2 are going back to junior or the KHL.


I like Linderg but he's going need a really could camp to slot in as a #3 center.

I'd roll the dice with some combination of 2 of these 3 at 1.5 Mil on a one year deal.

Doesn't help up the middle but the UFA center cupboard looks pretty bare. 

For every Taylor Pyat there's a Benoit Pouliot out there.


Devin Setoguchi

David Booth

Dustin Penner

@KevinTheNYRBlog Obviosuly Krug stepped into a postion on a veru very good defensive team from top to bottom to put the numbers he has so far. I haven't seen himas a real liability out there either. his quickness & Good hockey sense make up for what he lacks in size. One can hope.  


Intrigued by Adam Tambellini as well. Big kid (6'3) put some good numbers after moving to the WHL. Needs some more bulk and probably plays another year in the WHL.

it's actually 3 years for 6 Million!  I figured the Rangers would go 3 @ 2.25  and that would be that. Yeah, disappointed with this one. I get Stralman & Pouliot.

Looks like Tampa likes our system. I don't think Brian Boyle got overpaid. 

There were 3 years for 10.5 mil floating around.  2.3?  I see that being manageable. especially with Poiliot & Strallman already gone. He can play the wing & the middle  and sometimes you need those "locker room" guys to get it done. Disappointed with this one.

I think Stralman & B.Boyle will leave for bigger paydays .

As crazy as it sounds, of the 3, I think Pouliot has the most upside, (he'll be 28 in September) and i don't think The Rangers have anyone that can step in and play on that 3rd (our best) line.  If Brasssard is coming back(as an RFA i think it's all but certain) offering Pouliot a 3 year deal with an AV of 2.75, (2.25  - 2.75  -  3.25 ) before he hits the open market, might get it done. I can see him being a 20 + goal scorer and an asset on the PP.

I think they offer Moore 1 year @ 1.7 or 2 @ 1.5 per.  Signing him for the 4th line seems vital, especially if as i suspect, we Lose Boyle. Not seeing a whole lot of Lindberg, from what i have & what I've read, he might be a viable 3rd/4th  line option &  PK asset.  He's very good on draws and takes care of his defensive responsibilities.

@Sniper Turcotte Prust got 4 years 10 Million  (2.5 per) 

I like Boyle on this Team. That being said he's a tough signing.  Richards goes, the middle is shallow.

I wouldn't mind seeing Boyle play more LW on a 3rd line and can take draws as needed, but who goes?  Moore? I think  Step, Brass, are going in as 2 & 2 A  (we don't have a #1 ) Miller? Lindberg? 

Do they want to go 3 years @ 2.75 -3 Mil for a 4th line center if he can't move up into the Top 6 or 9? 

Not envious of the decision makers on that one. And that's without factoring in a # 1 C being added. (Statsny, Spezza........ Kesler)
