New York Rangers
@Josh-CK Thank you kind sir. By the way, what kind of return do you think Staal could fetch?

Ugh, I'm so torn about this. On one hand, having 3 shutdown defensemen is something that has made our defense one of the best in hockey. But at the same time, how can you possibly invest in another massive contract for a defenseman without taking away from your top 6? I have no clue how they're gonna have money next offseason to extend Hags, Staal, AND myself. All are looking to cash in. I hate to say it but I really think a trade is coming at some point this season. Hopefully it's not me ;)
Tanner Glass already has my vote for captain.

@_Jack Well the Rangers HAVE been linked to Kane recently.
Business in the front, party in the back...

@Tanner Glass Welcome to the team!
@GiveGartneraCup Can we get a mulligan on Sather?

@AnnoyingJoe There must be some chant MSG can come up with for that one...
@Josh-CK That doesn't sound too bad. I'd definitely take Legwand. And yeah, I have no clue what the hell is wrong with Ribeiro.lol
Let's be honest with ourselves here, people, Boyle was a solid role player but he is ultimately replaceable. Pouliot provided a surprising spark of offense, but he is also replaceable. Stralman was solid and probably our most consistent D-man in the playoffs, but our team is not exactly left in ruins without him. I thought D. Boyle was a good pickup. He should provide solid offense on the PP, one that we've been lacking for a while. Re-signing D. Moore was a very good move, and the Glass one was, ehh.. Well we can live with it. The toughest loss was Richie. He had over 50 points last year and I'm sorry, but I don't see Miller replicating those stats in his FIRST full year. Bottom line is, this team needs a legit #1 center... well besides me of course ;) I really think Sather needs to make a trade here. We're in a win-now mode this season but I honestly don't think we'll win it all without that top center.

Can't believe Richards signed for 2 mil. Huge steal for Chicago (Never thought I'd use the words "steal" and "Richards" in the same sentence.lol)
Richards to the Hawks, 2mil/1yr. WOW

@johnAMIRANTESrug And probably unashamed of it.lol
Gotta love the endless booing for Bettman.
@GiveGartneraCup UGH. Plus low expectations, losing team... It would've been Nash's perfect match.
Nash for the #1 pick, let's make it happen!
@KevinTheNYRBlog Yeah, now that I think about it 7 isn't too bad. Just hopefully not much higher than that though. Wonder if Sather is cookin' up any trades?

Hey @KevinTheNYRBlog I've been reading a lot that the Avs only plan on offering about a 5-6 million dollar deal to Stastny. If that's true do you think the Rangers would be crazy enough to offer him something in the 7 million dollar range?
So freaking proud of Moore, that guy deserves it hands down.

Sooo.. Mac Truck finishes 8th in the Norris voting. When will it stop being about offense/popularity and start being about, I don't know.. Defense! I refuse to believe he's only the 8th best defenseman.

Woah woah woah, slow down there chief. I don't like this plan one bit.

Kind of off-topic, but any chance they trade Talbot this season? He's an UFA next year and I'm sure he's not gonna want to wait another 6 years for Hank to retire. Might as well get value for him, right?
@omnishambles Probably from his parents shortly after birth.

@Alain Vinigerault Were you just born dumb or did this happen over time?
@Alain Vinigerault You're a special kind of stupid aren't you?
@Dante8496 @Alain Vinigerault If at first you don't succeed..
@GetTheKingACup @Alain Vinigerault Yeah man, those brown eyes are a killer.
@AnnoyingJoe I'm sure some will start to flood in once the Isles and Devils are out of it by December. Then we'll get to hear the all too familiar, "We're gonna be great next year, we have another top 5 draft pick..!"
I feel so cheated right now. We don't even get good trolls on this blog.
@Alain Vinigerault What team do you like?
@Zelrio Too far man, too far...
@tygalpin @Zelrio What did he say?
Will Munn material still be provided after Richards leaves?
Heartbreaking doesn't come close to describing this loss.. That being said, whoever isn't eff'n proud of this team is insane. 99% of hockey fans would've thought we were cooked after the first 2 weeks of the season. The adversity this team overcame to get here is crazy. It's been an amazing year guys. This blog made the games twice as enjoyable. Don't worry, we'll be back and better than ever next year. LGR!!
Jack for the whole team, Kev!
Dammit Nash, if you score I'll forgive 50% of your debts.
We are SO overdue for a OT win
What a snipe by Boyler!(Never thought I'd utter those words.lol)
His mom let him have cookies before supper, he'll be up all night...
Our defense is playing better, just gotta execute. Only down by 1, let's do this!
Let's squash some cockroaches ;)
So you're telling me there's a chance..

Shoot, I knew I forgot to do something..
I would hope for a much more motivated team on Wednesday. Especially since it could be the last game in a Ranger uniform for a few of them..
We're busy signing brad's farewell card now
