good to get this official.

UAGoalieGuy 05-26-2010 11:27 AM

Now just want to know the terms. We know it's going to be $900K per year. I just wonder what the bonuses will be.

Loffen 05-26-2010 11:29 AM

Nothing better to have a fellow countryman on my favorite team.

****ing A. Welcome aboard Zucco!

NYRAvery16NYR 05-26-2010 11:29 AM

:yo: Excited to see this guy play!

UnderPSI 05-26-2010 11:30 AM

Nice!!! Can finally stop waiting for "official" confirmation

The Perfect Paradox 05-26-2010 11:30 AM

Ok boys let start officially putting him in any depth charts

drewcon40 05-26-2010 11:40 AM

With my 400th post (I know it pales in comparison to most of you!), I would like to welcome Mats Zuccarello Aasen to the Rangers!! I cannot wait to see what his name is going to look like on the back of his sweater. Do they even allow that many characters if you purchase a jersey?

This is solid news!

pwoz 05-26-2010 11:41 AM

I have a good feeling about MZA, but am worried about his size... maybe he can compliment Anisimov's game?

we want cup 05-26-2010 11:43 AM

Do they come any classier than Naslund?

Quote:

Naslund was happy to provide his perspective on what lay ahead for the Norwegian star.

"Throughout the year, I talked to him a little bit about playing in the NHL and my experiences playing for different teams and what you can expect," Naslund recalled. "For any player, to have a chance to play for the Rangers, who are such a traditional and historic club is exciting, and I think he's excited about having the chance to experience that whole thing. It's just like I felt when I was coming in there. There's something special about having the chance to play at MSG and wear the Rangers uniform."

Nice signing. It's going to be interesting to see if he can make it in the NHL or not. He stood out to me in the Olympics.

mullichicken25 05-26-2010 11:44 AM

well in todays capped NHL it seems like you gotta roll the dice and get a little lucky to get ahead

got my fingers crossed!

nyr2417 05-26-2010 11:44 AM

YYEEESSSS, its official. Will Loffen make his fellow norwegian a spectacular highlight tape?

jas 05-26-2010 11:47 AM

Who saw this coming?














Worst.kept.secret.ever.

ecemleafs 05-26-2010 11:49 AM

seemed from the article Niklas Sundstrom gave MZA a lot of info about the Rangers as well.

UAGoalieGuy 05-26-2010 11:50 AM

I figure it's going to be a top 6 role for MZA or the AHL. Don't think he would fit in playing on the bottom 6, much like Christiansen. I can see the Rangers trying to sign or trade for another top 6 winger and go with:

Dubinsky - Christiansen - Gaborik
UFA/MZA - Anisimov/Drury - UFA/Callahan/MZA

Fitzy 05-26-2010 11:50 AM

Threw me right the **** off. The hell did this come from?

Anyways, good that thats out of the way. Time to work on RFA signings.

King of cool 05-26-2010 11:59 AM

About time! Welcome aboard Mats.

Levitate 05-26-2010 12:00 PM

nice, hopefully he's got what it takes to make the team, since I'm not too sure we're going to see a lot of decent FA's to sign to bring more skill to the lineup.

Congrats mate. May he dazzle the crowd over at MSG just as he has done here in Örnsköldsvik!

ecemleafs 05-26-2010 12:03 PM

Dubi Christensen Gaborik
Prust Anisimov MZA
Avery Drury Callahan
Voros Boyle Shelley

cant see sather not trying to add another top 6 player....maybe trading for a 1st/2nd line Center.

silverfish 05-26-2010 12:07 PM

Right when I saw him play in the Olympics I thought he'd be a good cheap option to add to our top 6. I'm very excited about this one.
