Miller, Fast, and Lindberg will all be pushing for spots. Duclair is a wildcard although most likely not.
Let's sat for argument sake that Richards, Callahan, and one of Boyle or D. Moore are not retained. That's three spots. One would go to UFA, two to rookies to start the year. Carcillo can always be an extra.
Would overpaying Dan Boyle for two years make sense?
I'd say Moulson but his skating does not fit AV's system.
Rather than go for the big names, make a trade...look for value, and if the Rangers have to take back a bad contract like Havlat for a year, not the worst thing in the world.
The scoring isn't consistent at all this year, so if the top six are the Stepan and Brassard line, and Hagelin is playing with Miller and Fast, not the end of the world.
If that's the case, maybe the best bet is to go after Dan Boyle in the offseason and overpay him for two years.
Dan Boyle is a ****ing defenseman.... why on earth would anyone with our D corps (assuming they are re-signed) sign someone who is at the tail end of their career?
And again, you cannot afford to PENCIL a rookie into a roster spot. it doesn't work. Did ANYONE watch what happened with Kreider last year?
