Sadly, player/coach in Slap Shot will be dead soon.

None.

Last year, the Rangers weren’t good enough to beat the Pens, let alone take on the Redwings. This year, the Redwings are better with the Hossa signing and likely to win the cup again. If the Rangers were confident about being able to advance beyond another second round playoff finish; they would have opted to remain status quo (resigning Jagr, Straka, Shanahan, Avery, etc.). Instead, they choose to reorganize one third of the team. In my mind, they’ve conceded the short term in hopes of being better long term. It doesn’t matter if they finish 2nd or last this year. The focus should be on getting acclimated to losing our C and both A’s, and at least seven new players. All four offensive and two defensive lines, already have at least one new player.

Currently, there’s a shortage of 1st or 2nd line wingers, an abundance of 3rd and 4th line wingers, and no room for the youngsters. Signing an ufa like Sundin or even Shananon who won’t be around after next season is a band-aid, and adds to the logjam. I think Prucha and Dawes have earned a shot and should be given the opportunity as a 1st or 2nd line winger.

Well, this is about who I'd want to sign, it's not about what's practical.

the Geoff

Is Geoff Sanderson still available?

I could see him fitting in on a 3rd line with Dubi and Sjo. Speed and power.

hmm not a bad player, even if he dont score like he used to, he is a solid penalty killer. i think he is still with edmonton, one more year, but i can see sather get him as a deadline pickup.

Aren't you the one who complains about no youth?

Yeah but out of the other side of your mouth you say that voros shouldn't have been signed because Byers is ready....Rissmiller shouldn't have been signed because Korpikoski is ready....

Don't we have "Fast" Freddie Sjostrom on our 3rd line? Or as I like to call him....... Rico Fata 2.0

Nothing foolish about it.

Sometimes the best thing is to let things pan out.

They let Jagr go and they wanted to build around Drury and Gomez, they got a few wingers, two of which who can put the puck in the net and upgraded their defense. They are looking for the youth to take another step forward to fill in some of the gaps as well.

Though they need another winger, its not imperative they get one now. There could be trades at the deadline when they know more about their club and what they need. Someone like Prucha could bust out again and be that guy... who knows.

I happen to agree with you.

No Sundin, No Shanny... no one. Start training camp as is.

Well, Sjo's best season in the AHL was 38 points in 80 games. Rico Fata did 71 in 61 with the Pack one season. Hopefully, our posters can temper their expectations of Sjo a bit more than they did with Fata.

Also, question: who was that guy that we signed, away from Dallas I think, years back? He was a former first round pick that went unsigned or something, and we signed him. Some people were really excited about him and he turned into nothing.

EDIT: Barrett Heisten. I remember some around here thought he was going to be a player. Apparently not.

Well

I can only see one reason why slats has signed so many players, if the youngens don't have a good camp , he has a backup plan. If the youngens, Byers and Korp, Anisemov all have good camps I would see him trading those vets to teams that need 3rd and 4th line depth. Or maybe dump Prucha, because he got outplayed for a spot on the roster.

Mara and Rosie could still be moved if, Sanguinetti and Sauer have a good camp.

All I see are multiple possibilities right now, once the opening night roster is finalized, then we will see either a Veteran roster with a few spots for youngens like dubi , dawes, etc. And our prospects playing another season in Hartford with some call ups for a cup of coffee, or our roster has more youngens in it and we move the players we just signed....or waive them.

It can't hurt to give some vets a tryout to see where they could fit in.
