Tom Pyatt had a rough first pro season in 07-08. He even was assigned to the ECHL. He had a bounce back season in 08-09. The Rangers included him in the Scott Gomez deal in 2009. Pyatt has carved out a NHL career with Montreal and now TB. Its too early to give up on Ryan Bourque.

The CBA will determine the direction of the franchise. If the cap goes down by a few million and remains flat in the next CBA,the Rangers and other teams won't be able to rely on cap increases to keep their players. Bringing in another big ticket(Nash/Parise). Is there enough room to bring in that player and keep the team together? Players will need to be moved. Is that smart? They are already a good team. Would you rather have Gaborik at $7.5M for the next 2 years or Nash at $7.8M for the next 6 years or Parise for $7M plus for the next decade? Nash and Parise are 2 years younger than Gaborik who has 2 40 goal seasons as a Ranger. Paying DZ. Paying McD. Paying Stepan.
