My proposal for getting more offense? Keep the team together. Let them get better together. Let them continue to grow together. Let Dubi get out of his goal scoring slump. Let the young guys like Anisimov develop more consistency in their games. Then I'd tell the fans to remember scoring doesn't come easy to any team in the NHL, and that we're the 12th highest scoring team in the league this year. That's actually above average if you remember there are 30 teams in the league. I know you guys are used to us having scoring problems so it's easy to fall back into that mindset, but we've actually been so in that regard.

I'll remind you that we're the best in the east. And we're the best defensive team in the east. So chill. It's a young team, this year has been great considering we should be better the next few years it only gets more exciting. That can all change if we get Nash, and very possibly for the worse. Lets do what got us here. Building from within and not giving up assets. Also lets keep the chemistry together, these guys have earned the chance to win it all together. They've earned the fans trust. Give it to them.

Me too. With the possible exception of Anisimov who I don't think will ever become what his supporters think he will.

But all of us know that the Rangers will probably give into temptation the way they always do.

The disturbing thing to me today is now hearing that McIlrath is part of the offer. He is one piece that the Rangers don't have and I want him more than Erixon.
