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.

Roy & Ribero off the Board . So the Center position looks like it will be filled internally (JT Miller /Lindberg or via trade (Joe Thorton)

@Falconer @Scott from SEC 224 I think #20  gets the 2 year bridge deal. The idea of them locking him up for 4-6 years (a la #27) crossed my mind but, i don't Sather's ready to commit those kind of years or dollars to him.

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

#16 3 years at 4.00

#20 2 years at 2.75

@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)

Who's delusional now? If there was a Stanley Cup for being wrong, you would have won it. Benching your franchise player that was playing well would have been DUMB.

@EquusBiz @Scott from SEC 224   Hank  has by far been the best Ranger on the Ice in the post season.(not like that is the highest of praises) He's kept them in games they should have been out of and gives that team a chance to win every night. Alienating your franchise goalie, that you just committed 7 years too, seems a bit like a knee jerk , dare i say 'dumb" move. What's going on between the pipes in the post season has NOT been the problem.

@EquusBiz  I don't think taking the most important player  on the team out of the lineup makes any real sense or will happen in outside of delusional message board posts. And Esposito was a moron.

Talbot won't be taking the reigns next year, like Richter was a candidate to the following year.

@ATCRyan  Nash ain't approving trades to any of those squads. Unlikely EDM or FLA would take a run at him.  I'm thinking San Jose, They are in a "win now" mode & need to make  a splash after being up 3-0 & getting ousted by the rival Kings. Thorton & Nash are really tight.  I'd take Brent Burns and 3rd rounder for him at this point.
