Gilroy's only asset is his skating, I wouldnt cry if he left.

All in all, our pro defense is bottom half. But our D has the potential to be very good in 2-3 years if we stick to our guns.


And no, Potter isnt better than Rozsival, thats just assanine.
Right, because Potter has been given a chance to prove himself.

Only Redden and Rozival can make mistake after mistake and still sent out there

Rozsival has put up better numbers and has been a better defenseman at the NHL level than Potter has ever done at the AHL level. nuff said.

I think Potter could be a third pairing guy on a really weak team. Thus I hope he gets the chance to.

Anyone think it's possible Potter's on his way out, other GM just wanted to see how he'd fare in the NHL?

How do you know he is not better then Rozy...in a real organization he would have been given his chance already...but the rangers are so stacked on defense that he is not given a fair chance.

Amazing how many guys on these boards love medicore players.

I could care less if Potter is better then rozival or redden...but the fact that they are in his way to prove what he can do just makes me sick.

The Rangers continue to roll out the same garbarge every night and you guys sit here and defend them.

If we are not going to make the playoffs with the crap we have...then why not give the kids a shot.

I bet you guys thought Mike Motteau sucked to back in 2001..right..we were better off with bringing in another old has been player like Rozy.

All he does now is get 17-18 minutes a night on a much better team.

Potter is okay. He's a decent defenseman in the AHL, but I seriously doubt he's capable of regular NHL defense duty. He's just not that good.

Exactly. He's a 26 year old AHLer because bums like R&R bring their supposed "poise" to the lineup.

No way he could be any worse. And hes a lot cheaper.

Oh, he could be MUCH worse. How familiar are you with AHL hockey?

He was our best defenseman 05' through 08'. Have you been watching this team?

this arguement is not if Potter is better then Rozy or Redden...it is that they both suck...eat up a ton of cap space and bring nothing to the table with the random good first pass or not being in Hanks way.

Henikken came up...played exceptionally better IMO but gets sent back down to Hartford for no reason.

People say that Bobby is not ready but Rozy and Redden are...that makes total sense.

Look...Rozy on a real team..would be a good 6th, maybe 5th defensemen...making 2 million a year.
