I think Chimp is right. I'm sure NY is on Forsberg's list... but maybe at number 4 or 5

2nd line.? We need to replace Gomez. Dubi is not much an upgrade, if any. Although I think, knowing, Sather tricks of the past, that's a lie. We are interested in LeCavalier. Foppa is used as a cover for it.

He might not have a ton of options... Philly or Was have no cap space either.

And I don't think we have any real negatives from Forsbergs perspective. We have Drury who is a very good friend of Forsberg. We have Hank who we know Forsberg respects tremendously. We have Brash who we know Forsberg likes.

I also think Forsberg likes Tortorella.

And he have gone on record saying "everyone" would love to play in NY.

Is it likely that he is coming here? Definitely not... But I don't think its impossible.

No harm in scouting, and if he signs on our terms, where's the problem? Go for it!

Forsberg, left handed center.

Prospal - Forsberg - Gaborik
Lisin - Dubinsky - Callahan
Drury - Anisimov - Kotalik
Avery - Boyle - Higgins

Give the first line 20+ Minutes a game, and let every other line duke it out for the rest of the minutes.

I don't care how long it's been since he's played, or how bad his booboos have been, Forsberg even now is a 1c.


*There is also the chance that Slats is doing this to bluff someone. Perhaps he has a deal for a 1c on the table and is saying "Take it or leave it, I can just sign Forsberg." I find it unusual he came out and said something here.

This is a way better option than Vinny. Low risk, high reward, no picks/players need to go to any other team to make this happen. If he remains healthy through the season, I bet he would resign. He'd be playing with Gaborik and Hank in the world's most famous arena. He'd love it here.

As long as his price is not outrageous and he actually appears to be healthy enough to contribute I am all for this.

Great player for the kids to learn from as well.

It really all depends on whether he's healthy, whether he wants to come to NY (over, say, COL or PHI), and whether he would take small money.

#1 is he healthy

#2 does he improve the current roster

#3 does he mesh with the system

#4 can they make the money part work


Can't remember Sather being so candid mid season about interest in such a high profile player. Especially with Brooks who's quips get picked up all over the hockey world....Forsberg will certainly get barraged with questions about this... Sather laying his cards on the table? Using the media to deliver a message?

...every team is going to watch the video of that Vancouver game and see how they took Gabby out of the game.... teams are starting to find their stride and they will have more focused game plans for certain opponents...we already know the Rangers lean way to much on Gabby to provide the offense.

Still better than Gomer, way better. But won't get the Rangers much farther imo

Did you just compare one of the greatest players to ever play the game to Chris Drury? Forsberg is 100x better at everything than Chris Drury, probably even fishing

no.

i used dreary as example of someone who would be a "great player that the kids could learn from". one of my all time least favorite statements.

thats all.

but i also was implying that dreary and forsberg were both um..... not fast.

Forsberg is playing right now for Sweden in Karjala Cup (against the Czech Republic)

There are scouts from the Rangers there to take a look at him. He was pretty invisible in the first period and in the intermission interview he said he's nervous to be back, knowing a lot of eyes are on him. He looked better towards the end and hopefully he'll get into the game in the 2nd.

He worked out pretty well.

This is his first game right? I wouldn't get too worried about it. I'm sure you guys from Sweden will get to see him a lot more as he progresses.

1. It was in the end of a long shift
2. Forsberg has never been known for his incredible speed
