So many here cried about team toughness, Sather goes out to replace Bradsher and it's the worst move ever made. Just can't understand some of you. It was probably a 6th round pick, something useless.
Adding a 4th line goon who will play 6 minutes a night for the final 22 games of a losing season doesn't make us a tougher team. Great, he can go out and fight the goons on the other team. That should really intimidate them.
good trade. we need a legit fighter, prust , hes ok, he may fight alot but, hes hes to small to fight big players so he wont be able to get great shots in. But Prust is a better player overall, of course. Glad we got Shelly.
We need an enforcer for next year, and as long as he gets along in the room I am sure he will be back for cheap. Not a bad trade at all.
Exactly, I am not sure what doesnt make sense here. It is try-out for a guy that Sather must be looking at for this offseason. If he fits in well than great, they lose a 5th rounder in horrible draft, if he doesnt, than they lose a 6th in a horrible draft.
Here some 5th and 6th round highlights..err picks from the past years:
NYR 5th round picks: Brandon Snee (2000), Shawn Collymore (01), Mike Walsh (02), Nigel Dawes (03), Roman Psurny (04), Trevor Koverko (05), Tomas Zaborsky (06)
NYR 6th round picks: Sven Helfenstein (2000), Marek Zidlicky (01), Jake Taylor and Kim Hirschovits (02), Ivan Dornic, Phillip Furrer and Chris Holt (03), Jordan Foote (04), Greg Beller (05), Eric Hunter (06)
So you see... save the odd lucky pick (Lundqvist), Rangers are totally useless in the later rounds...
People need to stop acting like this is the only trade the Rangers will make for the rest of the year
I'll be ecstatic if this is the only trade we do make for the rest of the season. Unless of course, Sather manages to move one of our three-headed overpaid baboons, but let's not get ahead of ourselves here. 2/3 of them can't be moved.
