I am starting to think that if the trading partner is really in the conference then Ottawa makes sense. Neal also makes sense, but as you point out it has to be larger than just Neal.
1 week, 3 days ago on Boomer Esiason Hints At Potentially Imminent Trade ; Let's Speculate
As long as Kreider is not included in any trade. That would be out of left field, i know and i would finally be done with them. Spezza does not have grit and St Louis does not fit that bill exactly but i dont see why ranger fans would not like that deal. Paciorettty has size but not really grit. Hartnell does have grit but his production has been way off and what makes him a topline player? Jagr, Ruttu and Michalek would be big disappointments for ranger fans and Simmonds makes no sense for Flyers. And please...no Detroit players. the 1 for 1 part makes it tough to figure. So lets go with St. Louis or Paciortty for now.

What would Staal be worth in a trade or does his injury history make him nearly "untradeable". I think a guy like Callahan needs to stay though. He makes a difference on the ice, is versatile and plays a full game, end to end.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on What Would A Trading Deadline With The Rangers As Sellers Look Like?
@PenaltySh0t Prust is a much tougher fighter than Dorsett.
Despite Dorsett's willingness this team needs to get a bit tougher. Been Saying that for 6 months... Sather has to do something here.

@McIlrath That would change things a bit for the better. Watch how more effect the first three lines are. the 4th liners dont play that much anyway so why not at least let them have a role. Pyatt and Pouliot are not 4th line players. Pyatt is likely a 3rd line checker and we dont know what Pouliot is.
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Mashinter Assigned to Hartford
@NYR44 So the Rangers will just let Boston push them around a bit. What is it with these moves? 20 Games in and the fans get it but management does not. Mashinter should get a chance. Pouliot has had 1/4 of a season and has done nothing. and now we know why Blue Jackets traded Brassard. Our fourth line should be set up to change flow, provide energy, etc and yet we have basically 3rd liners that cannot score comprising the 4th line.
Also teams are starting to target Kreider. They know he is being very effective and they will start to slow him down or take him off the ice. What is it going to take to protect the guys? More Concussions?
I think you are correct. Having said that i still rather see Ike in the system one more time as opposed to Duda. I understand that watching him on opening day go 0-3 and 2K's will be miserable..but get him a tutor/mentor or whatever is required to get his head straight. I can see him blasting 30 for an AL team next year (albeit with 160 K's).
3 months, 3 weeks ago on The Blame Game, Starring: Ike Davis
Sure is a collective sigh of relief. Was thinking that somehow the Flyers were going to figure out a way to get Bickel or Mashinter. Still need some size and toughness on the home club as Their AHL team is plenty tough already
5 months, 1 week ago on Powe, Bickel & Mashinter Clear Waivers
@jslnyr1102 lets hope so... Sather has not done well with free agency nor has he drafted spectacularly... He has made some decent trades that enabled him to recover from his other bad moves. I do hope MciLrath produces and gets the chance.
7 months, 1 week ago on Stepan Signing Will Likely Leave Deserving Players Off Roster
@AG_Blue @hankthetank30 Respect your opinion but i dont think he is great along the boards. Hagelin does as much on the boards and then does something with the puck... He does a days work i guess
@josh930 @IcyCup @jasonshyer agree that he should be and do more, but that does not mean you get rid of him unless you get something decent back. The problem is that we dont get power forwards on this team too often. There are several other players on this team who do less..and MDZ is not one of them.
@RangersVW14 agree. lets see what this guy can really do.. He needs to stay and send down powe and pyatt
@Rangers3024 That seems to be he pattern. The coach just did not trust the tough players with any significant minutes so we keep losing the tougher players to free agency or trades. Now we may not need an "enforcer" these days but we do need some size/toughness combination.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Asham: Rangers Were Fed Up With Torts
@johnnyb3910 @KevinDeLury @cb1 I agree. We need a slightly large Asham as Dorsett is a different kind of player
@EHBIGAPPLE @Betweentheworlds i think incorrect, HR types are not in the business of downsizing themselves in the corporate world. They are responsible for downsizing everyone else.
Not enough size drafted at the forward position as usual..
8 months, 1 week ago on Draft Summary Part One: Rangers Go All-Out On Forwards In Third Round
@Richard Falconer Agree.. enough already. Many teams have dmen on their team with less than three years in the minors.. Either play him or admit another draft mistake.
8 months, 1 week ago on Why Dylan McIlrath's Time is Now
MDZ deserves better than what is written about him. He gets no protection gets hit often and still keeps going. I would say that if he played in Boston he would flourish. Lets give this guy a break especially since we have 2 star dmen down in Sauer and Staal.
8 months, 1 week ago on Could Del Zotto Be Traded This Weekend?
@KevinDeLury @Josh6 Strange that they say separated when i guess they mean dislocating. I did this 13 times over 20 years until surgery..no idea how they played with it. THe fact that they did it so many times in one year suggests that unfortunately they should not have been playing

@Skunkman yes you do
