Solid addition to the organization. Basically we traded Maloney to PHX for 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.
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.
Man, the Rangers have more assistants than an old age home...
How did Barnett develop into a USA Hockey guru anyway?
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.
