This could mean the Boyle rumors are true....It could also mean the Rangers plan B for the forward lines just took a hit.....

Darn it... He was part of my Plan A, which includes Avery, Jagr, Rolston and Orpik. As of right now, none of that is looking all that good :help:

Dredden 06-29-2008 10:01 PM

Whos next, Brooks Orpik?

silverfish 06-29-2008 10:02 PM

Boy they are really making changes.

Burlington Bomb 26 06-29-2008 10:02 PM

idk why but i have a feeling Avery, Jagr, and Shanny are coming back.

please no... Honestly, if he was the only UFA we signed, I would be semi ok with that...

TomLaidlaw 06-29-2008 10:05 PM

I see alot of 6-5 games in Tampa's future. The 1990's Colorado Rockies strategy...All Offense.

Yea this would blow if TB gets Rolston on top of Malone and crap even Roberts is better than what they had

I imagine Prospal too , they have his rights

frankthefrowner 06-29-2008 10:07 PM

They could still sign a Defensemen, so lets relax with the crappy defense assesment, maybe theyll trade St. Louis for a Stud Defensemen.

Yeah, you would figure they would try to pick up Orpik or some other solid D-man and a goalie. If they had a goalie they could be a tough opponent. (they might already be a tough opponent)

I dunno, a top 4 of Boyle, Kuba, Lukowich and Ranger is a solid D unit, but it will depend on what ramo and Smith can do in net.

From a NYR point of view I hope that they doen't get a deal with Rolston done

I agree I think that Tampa (especially if the sign Rolston) is building a winning team. I'm beginning to be excited to get 2 games against them out of the way in the beginning of the season :handclap:

Around the NHL - Non-NYR Signings and Trades
 
Not sure if the mod's wanna sticky this or not but I figured now would be a good time to create one of these to consolidate all of the Non-NYR signings and trades since the league wide activity seems to be picking up.

-Rolston's rights traded to TB
-Foote Re-Signed by Avs
-TRADE: Stoll + Greene for Visnovsky
-Malone Signs 7 Year Deal/$31.5M with Tampa
-Liles signs with Colorado
-Flyers Sign Eminger To One-year Contract
-Flames re-sign Langkow, Conroy, Nystrom and McElhinney

JayMan82 06-29-2008 10:44 PM

Great idea Tom... Definitely saves overhead for the mods...

Burlington Bomb 26 06-29-2008 10:45 PM

Flyers sign Carter to a 15 mil 3 year deal, and Sharks signed Boucher, and Roenick

BobMarleyNYR 06-29-2008 10:55 PM

Tampa needs to chill... Malone is ok, but chill now.

New ownership flexing their muscles.

FutureGM97 06-29-2008 11:23 PM

the Mullet Bolts ( that is mine ;) ) are looking to change things around fast. hopefully Malone was the last big name UFA they sign.

That is Melrose's style -- attack, attack, attack

NYR Viper 06-30-2008 12:02 AM

..........wow............

i mean i guess it makes sense as all they need now is average goaltending and they are build like the pens last year, except with more experience...offensive defenseman....unproven goalie....high flying offense who is gritty as well

Bird Law 06-30-2008 12:13 AM

This ****ing sucks. The one UFA who I really wanted us to sign.
