I'm sorry, but when have Fritsche, Voros, or Rissmiller ever either:
A- scored 2 goals in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
B- scored 70+ points in a season.
Some of you can blast away at zero risk signings like Fedotenko and blast away at getting White for our garbage. But they have proven something in the past. And there is no way to say they won't have something to prove this year.
If Stepan, Grachev, and Weise are not ready, Tortorella isn't going to just throw them to the wolves.
For ONE year (if that) it doesn't hurt to have some of these guys around while the young guys in Hartford develop for a few months.
They lacked talented depth last year, now they potentially have a good amount of it, and people are *****ing, for what seems like no other reason then to ***** about something.
Most teams would call this amount of depth a good problem to have.
Sather makes a few cheap, short-term moves with ZERO risk, and people complain.
I have full faith Stepan and Grachev will be Rangers for a long time. But if they're not ready in October, then so be it, they'll be ready later in the year or in October next year.
I'm glad they have this kind of depth. Its a long season.
