Regarding Free agents
I would think the Sather brass would be interested in looking into discussions with the following FA players to
- small chance IMO, Rangers cannot swallow another big long term deal without getting rid of one. Winds up in Detroit, Minnesota or stays put.
- probably stays in desert
- would be great addition on short deal - but not very likely
- one year at around 3 M as backup plan to add depth scoring - why not?
- possibly a 3rd option...Big chance
- nope, Torts would take away his IHOP vouchers
- hope not, but might happen on a one year deal
- ship has most likely sailed, some bad blood there I believe
- I would hope so aS a great stopgap 3rd line RW alternative - but methinks Sather not interested
- not really that interested as I believe he might be Chris Higgins 2 and will cost excessive $$$ as FA
- veteran with offensive upside, injury problems say NO
- see Michael Samuelsson
- pipe dream (unless Girardi or Staal + is traded for Bobby Ryan... Then maybe yes). Probably headed to DRW
- great shot but their will be suitors driving up $$$, too expensive IMO
- maybe on a short contract
- see Corey Sarich
Slim pickings to fill NYR needs and stay within cap for reasonable time.
But I could see three possible pickups for The Rangers in FA - if the stars are in alignment:
One of Whitney/Smyth/Jagr - short term
One of Gaustad/Kelly/Moen/konopka/tootoo ( maybe add One of the last three names esp. if Prust costs too much & walks)
One of Sarich/Gil - short term
