We're Rangers fans, our mindset is the cap goes up we automatically have more money to spend, there isn't any other way that we know of

So if they've extended the current CBA, does that mean we have no hopes of seeing a cap-exempt buyout introduced until 2012-2013?

Seriously. Screw all the "Bettman's baby" crap, I love Sid as a player. I'd go nuts if we signed him. He's the best in the league.

It was going to be that way all along. That was the final year to which it could be extended, and there's no way the NHLPA would have gone forward with a labor battle without an executive director.

if its a 5% increase from the current cap thats like 59.6 i think. with that extra 2.8 million we could do some seriousssss damage this off-season and kovy is a very realistic possibility right now. LETS GET KOVY. Can anyone photoshop him in a rangers jersey?

FYI Zippy broke the news first. Dont like brooks so when i can...
from Brooks twiter: "BREAKING NEWS: Post has learned NHLPA votes YES on 5-percent cap escalator and YES on extending CBA through 2011-12."
"Post learning" means reading zippys tweets.

If Dubinsky was being a ***** and wouldn't give up his number, probably.

Its not up to me, its up to him, and hes stated multiple times hes not going to do the superstar to biggest market deal. He doesnt wanna come here and frankly, I dont even care.

**** Crosby.

Understand why, now?

Thanks.


Kinda like when everyone was pissed that Orr left. He WANTED to go to Toronto. Sometimes players have preferences, be it where they wanna play and where they dont.

So you wouldn't take the undisputed best player in the league on this team if you had the choice?

Comical.

Yes please. If they traded Horton for that crap, we could do well with Sather and his blackmail.

Yea that's what I've been saying.

Maybe Rosival, Sanguinetti, the 40th pick, and a mid-level prospect for Weiss should get it done seeing how they traded Horton for a washed up defenseman and the 15th pick, and a 3rd rounder.

Wideman isn't exactly washed up, he's 27 and had an off year.

But still awful.

And I'd drool at that deal. A powerplay with Kovalchuk on the point, Gabby down low, Weiss setting people up, Callahan/Dubinsky screening, and MDZ as our PPQB, makes me a happy camper.

1. The name is a joke

2. You said you don't want Crosby. You said that.

Who cares? If you can sign him, you do.

And what does my age matter, as long as I know what I'm talking about?
