If Dubinsky signs then use the remainder on a FA such as Seidenberg who had a good year and is a solid Dman.
If you do want another forward, you don't need to get a high paying player like Tanguay. We have scoring on the wings but hard working and grit along with a bit of a scoring touch is something the Rangers will take. Taylor Pyatt is a guy I could really see the Rangers going for because of his size, speed, and work ethic. In a nut shell, he is a bigger Ryan Callahan....he hasn't hit the big time with goals yet but he would be a good addition to the roster IMO.
We can't continue to ***** about contracts like Redden, Drury, and Rozsival. We are stuck with them and have to make due with what is given.
Our most pressing need isn't a #5-6 or 7 dman. We need a god damn playmaker on this team. who is going to set up our so called scoring wings?
We don't need another Ryan Callahan. Frankly we have too many. to much grit on this team and not nearly enough skill. We need somebody who can skate, stickhandle and pass. We don't have that at all.
Frankly I would try to sign Tanguay at all costs right now, b/c he is actually what this team truly NEEDS. a Playmaker.
a #5 or 6 dman won't help this team nearly as much as a top 6 winger/center who can set people up.
