Man, the Rangers have more assistants than an old age home...

How did Barnett develop into a USA Hockey guru anyway?

Solid addition to the organization. Basically we traded Maloney to PHX for Barnett

He was instrumental in building the Phoenix farm system, and is the reason why PHX selected Turris.

Seriously - we should just merge the two front offices.

Bad trade. They should've also given us a second rounder with that.

We got fleeced. We should have gotten at least MacLean back in return along with Barnett

trust me....NYR got screwed.

Yea he started the rebuild but he did alot of Old FA buying in hopes the team would gel together into a SC team...sound familiar? If he sticks with scouting then I guess he would be okay but I'm not sure what is going to happen with this. I am a little wary of this one.

Well he was a really good agent, not so good in PHX though.

Does he speak Russian? Seems like any new hire should have that in his resume, to negotiate with our players, and Omsk.

Barnetts a top contract guy who could help out the front office. Don't see any problem with this.

Rangers pro scout Frank Effinger left the Rangers to join Donnie in Phoenix.Rangers head amateur scout Jim Hammett is rumored to be joining TB as their director of player personnel.Effinger was brought in by Don two years ago from Minnesota.

Not really a USA Hockey guru. It sounds like he'll be responsible for the scouting done in the United States, which encompasses more than American players. Think NCAA, USHL, USNTDP, U.S. High School, etc.
