Who all is left that is considered a big guy? Palffy, Bondra, Kariya, Selanne, Demitra. I can't think of any others off hand. Unless we make a late run on FA's, this is going to be a VERY young and inexperienced team.

Well unless we resign Nedved, or get Demitra and move him to C....looks like Holik and Lundmark are 1-2 centers.

Demitra is a natural C.

I would add Zhamnov, Glenn Murray, Zhitnik, Weekes, Kovalev, Lindros, Recchi, Francis (anyone know if he is retiring?), Numminen, Schneider, Hull, Shanahan, Allison, Deadmarsh, Carter, Damphousse, and Ricci as more names to keep an eye out for as big name free agents that people are looking at.

I was hoping for Rolston , I loved his game ever since he played for the Devs. It's amazing he moved around so much, he's a really valuable team guy...

id expect sather to push hard for one of these two, unfortunately i can easily see us overpaying for nedved and giving him a 3 year deal instead of a 1 year deal

demitra id like to sign but he wants too much and doesnt want to be here, so unless sather makes an insane offer he will sign elsewhere

If the guy doesn't wanna be here (demitra), why even bother with him? I want guys that actually wanna play for this team.

eh, i've always thought rolston was a bit overrated. don't get me wrong, he's a great player, either 2nd line winger or 3rd line center in a pinch, but he's not the kind of guy you get for a rebuilding team. he's much better suited to be one of the "intangibles" that a playoff team has. we would've benefited from his wheels though.

your statement makes sense, but this is sather we are talking about, so regardless of what demitra may have said if sather wants him he will go after him

i agree with what Balej20 sadi and what you also said but.. i rather have Sather sign a player who doesn't mind being on a losing, young, and inexperienced team, and plays for the game, not the money. > also wants to come to the Rangers to help out the team and be a mentor to the youngsters. But knowing Sather, if he wants a player and can't get him, he will do everything in his power to get him; if i means giving him a 6 figure salary, then so be it.

Yep you're right...Lets just pray he wont do that this year. Already 2 guys i could have seen him sign in the past have slipped through (Rolston and Conroy). Now you got guys like Palffy and Demitra out there. Lets see what Glen does....
