Parise,Koivu,Pominville up front. Granlund and Nino. Coyle is hurt but he is a really good player. Heatley is in the last season of his contract. They have space to sign Vanek in the summer. He went to Minnesota. His wife is from there. They spend their summers in Minnesota. His best friend is Pominville who signed an extension. Fletcher has done very good job with that team. He regrets trading Leddy in a deal for Barker. He wasn't paying Burns so he traded him. Setoguchi was traded to Winnipeg. Coyle will be enough to make that a good deal for Minnesota. Fletcher needed to clear money so he traded Setoguchi. They couldn't amnesty Heatley because of an injury. Clutterbuck for Nino. They couldn't afford Clutterbuck. Nino benefitted from playing in the AHL for the entire 12-13 season. There was also an issue with the Islanders front office. Nino needed to play after barely playing. Some of the Rangers young guys could benefit from spending the season in the AHL rather than get called up and play in a limited role. Fletcher was with Florida,Anaheim and Pittsburgh before becoming the Wild GM replacing Doug Risebrough who left that team in a bad spot. Of course,Slats put his buddy Riser on the Rangers payroll. That's what friends are for.
Yep, yet another case of teams with less resources than us making better moves. It seems like every time a team jettisons a member of the Glen Sather good ole' boys club he swoops in to scoop them up. What makes this worse is that most of the time we seem to take steps back where as the other team seems to take them forward.
Is this a 21st century hockey team? When the majority of the higher ups haven't accomplished anything since the previous century the answer appears to be no. Time for these guys to get lost, take all the money you've earned and buy yourselves a lifetime supply of depends and ensure!
