Ranger Scouts watching Colorado tonight.
 
Now I believe the sought out player is Barrie for MDZ. Is this guy any good anyways?

Mats Zuccarelli 01-11-2014 07:33 PM

We scout a lot of teams, but yeah

I really like Barrie. I think a Del Zotto for Barrie and McGinn swap would be fair for both teams

He's similar to Del Zotto, albeit smaller. He just needs to find some consistency, but he's a good skater and has great vision and a very good passer.

That's why I mentioned McGinn :yo:

Rather have DZ than Barrie. I'm starting to think it would be stupid to trade DZ because we wont get fair value.

He said scorer. ;-)

Barrie is a solid player, he's got a lot of offensive tools and skills, RH to boot. He's also having a tough time under Roy this season. Barrie + 2nd for DZ would be a good deal.

Dimz92 01-11-2014 07:55 PM

Rangers scouts have been at Avs games the last month or so, nothing big out of this

Lateral deal. He's talented but small and not particularly an established scorer.

He's got tools but hasn't put it together yet.

I still prefer to move him in a package deal Or wait till Draft day.

Barries a good player but not sure he's the guy we should be dealing for.

Vitto79 01-11-2014 08:05 PM

Barrie is out w an injury 2nite no?

They Vatanen kid scored for the ducks. Maybe a target for girardi

Spot on. Would be far from awful but pretty lateral.

Exactly why DZ is still a Ranger. We're not going to just unload him for scraps, at the very least we'll get a guy with a lot of upside in the same mold as Del Zotto, just needs a change in scenery (as the saying goes)

offdacrossbar 01-11-2014 08:37 PM

Barrie fits that bill.

The one thing about Barrie is his wheels. He's got a great stride and is very smooth skating with the puck. Fits in with guys like staal, mcd, Stalin and Moore. A

As good as his wheels are, I'm not sure at 5'10 he's got the size to play a ton of minutes.

I would like him in a rangers jersey just not for del zotto straight up.

Lion Hound 01-11-2014 08:42 PM

I don't know the player or players involved, however this is a reoccurring theme. Rangers scouted them often last season and have been doing so this season with regularity again. Most recently was a few days ago when Dater posted the Rangers had two scouts at Avs/Sens.

slipknottin 01-11-2014 08:44 PM

5'10 isn't that small really. It's all about how he plays.

Shattenkirk is a very solid player for the blues. He's not any bigger

But Shattenkirk isn't Barrie

eco's bones 01-11-2014 08:52 PM

There are some really good D's who've been small but my tendency is to stay away from them. DZ IMO is kind of small.

Rangers had Ruotsolainen but that guy really had some skills. Great skater--and always a dangerous point producer.

Others off the top of my head--Rafalski, Dan Boyle, Zidlicky, Enstrom, Timmonen. Torey Krug has a lot of potential.

Leetch was not that big either.. same for Mathieu Schneider who was very underrated..

Orr Nightmare 01-11-2014 09:09 PM

Let's get Barrie and the kid from Ducks so we could really be the smallest softest teams in the league. Both guys 5'10 and under...exactly what we need.

The blues D aren't particularly large other than the top 2.
