@KevinTheNYRBlog @ThomasDimopoulos It doesn't sound like Hayes has any interest in coming to NYC, at least that is how the media reports say....

Every good team has cap issues, and in the next few years they will get worse…look at the Blue Jackets, they gave Dubinsky that ridiculous contract, and now are playing hardball with Johansen. The Rangers are lucky to have some very good young players, but the downside is that they now have to begin to pay up. Sather isn't crazy about doling out long-term contracts to players he considers are unproven, so he does eventually have to overpay in some cases, but he's paying to minimize longer-term risk.

@ObviouslyWeHadAGoodRun TG apparently replaced Dorsett, who was making about $1.6...do I think the TG signing was sound? No, but from a strictly financial standpoint it is saving Sather a few sheckels
It won't happen, but the remaining RFAs should take a few pesos less on their deals to make sure we can squeeze a decent addition like Booth in....

@TomDundie Eric Staal is lazy, but maybe the challenge of playing in NYC with his bro would ignite him...
The other aspect of this signing that has been largely overlooked is that those fans that own a Boyle #22 Ranger jersey get to keep them relevant ;-)

@gravey94 @Picaz77 at this point, if McIlrath can hold his own on the 3rd pair within the next 2 seasons and play like Klein with more toughness, I 'd be ecstatic. However, if Girardi/Boyle/Klein don't miss time due to injury, he may not got too much ice time, but not a bad problem to have...

@MikeBlue sather is horrible at signing free agents but almost never makes a bad trade....you can rag on him all you want and some of it is justified, but the last three seasons has been all his work and you should praise him

@dahjay we got the real boyle now...
@Hockey1982 @pkh33 omg i can't believe the love for the frightening all of a sudden...boyle is going to tip the balance of power in the east!!
@Sioux-per-man @pkh33 wait so by acquiring garrison, stralman and the lesser boyle they have vaulted over the rangers??? remember how montreal swept them....??! omg
@SmellyKisio boyle better play on that 3rd line in tampon bay or he's a liar...or yzerman is
@Bring back Langdon @KevinTheNYRBlog are the fish the lightning?
@IhateGaborik @Bring back Langdon @Josh-CK well worth it...to make that amazing run for the title would have been impossible without St.Louis!
@MikeBlue @upstate tom The West is too loaded, they can't keep outlasting the field out there...seasons change
@Say my Name Agreed.Looking forward to JT Miller to fill his void, but one thing Richards did well was NOT take dumb penalties, and Miller....not so much...
@rangersfan92 Vrabata would be optimal, but he's too much $$$
@Dminches if Pouliot and Stralman can take major steps in one season, why not Miller? He was a first-round talent...
@AnnoyingJoe youth will be served next season
@Say my Name Agreed, but AV has had Glass before and he sees him as half-full :-)
@_Jack read more articles
@upstate tom Dan Boyle has played at least 75 games in 5 of the last 6 seasons....injury concerns??
The Glass signing is a total mystery...AV seems infatuated with him, makes no sense....and 3 years~!!! This is Brashear The Sequel
@AminoRage and they['re both #22, what a coinky-dink!
@Derek Stepan why wow? he's got almost as much money as Bill Gates lol
@jasonshyer boyle had a better year offensively than subban...6 PP goals

@Wallace1so you stop trying because your team is 'jinxed.' i'm glad you aren't the GM....
@Josh-CK @Gorangers0525 @Lordstanleybroadway Just think how awesome Stepan will be when he is able to eat solid food again!
@betweentheworlds 100% agree
@Josh-CK Just my gut, I think they sign Moore and Poops, and Stralman and Boyle walk.
@Say my Name I hate to speculate BUT I wonder if we could have convinced Yzerman to take Girardi instead of Callahan straight up for St.Louis, bumped both Stralman and Klein up a notch, started Diaz on the 3rd pairing...what might have been....we would still have a free-agent-to-be in Cally but probably both of our #1 draft picks...but as bad as Girardi played in the Finals, we might have had a parade in NYV last week...!

@Say my Name The analysis above, as well as my own eyes, tells me that he must be hurt. A few of his mishaps were unbelievably gruesome and looked almost deliberate, almost like his head was elsewhere. While he's not stud D-man, he's above-average but G is more suited for 2nd-pair minutes and matchups (were he not right-handed, he wouldn't be on the first pair with McD, that's obvious). I was in favor of Sather trading him at the deadline, but I think he was asking way too much...c'est la vie. LGR!!!

@johnnyranger it must be that bad Garden ice that Doughty was harping on about in his post-game interview lol
@cardboardcllctr It wasn't just the money, it was the NTC he demanded...read what Sather said.
8 months, 3 weeks ago on Tying Up St. Louis for Callahan Loose Ends
Don't blame Sather for Nash; 100% of the GMs on this planet make that deal.
10 months, 4 weeks ago on Rangers Looking for Methot In Return for Del Zotto; Bruins Interested in Girardi?
@VinnieR Maybe he just wanted to avoid all of the questions and scrutiny...? I'm going with that excuse :-)
1 year ago on Nash Not At Home Opener Ceremony
The bridges, and the impetus behind them (money), look horrific, but I will wait until opening night to make a more informed judgement. But in a world-class renovation or new arena there should be NO obstructions whether it's the playing surface, scoreboard, other part of the arena,...this looks like something you might see in the USSR back in the 70s or something. Simply no excuse for the nauseating greed of cramming more seats in.

@Rangers3024 Stepan is horrible on face-offs, so maybe he should move to wing...
1 year, 4 months ago on Rangers Were Moore's First Choice
Is it too late to somehow have these idiotic bridges scrapped??? They might as well allow fans to just walk on the ice during games, an equally dumb idea!
OK, sounds good on paper, but how do you make that strategy work when Lucic camps his big butt right in front of Henrik??
1 year, 4 months ago on Rangers Officially Name Samuelsson, Arniel Assistant Coaches
Appears to be a very good deal for the Rangers.
1 year, 4 months ago on Rangers Trade Christian Thomas To Canadiens For Danny Kristo
When the core players stop playing for the coach, it is time for a change...hard for anyone to argue that point. As for if AV is the cure for what ails the Rangers, I for one am excited about what I am hearing, especially the part about how AV likes to roll 4 lines and not give any one player crazy minutes.

Slat is a genius when it comes to trading...just keep his checkbook locked up when the free agent store is open ;-p
