This is just a big build up for the news that Mcsorley and Mccarthy are coming out of reitirement.

Pretty off topic here but isn't it kind of weird how the organization stacked up on players with Italian last names before they went with all Irish ones?

Sangs (good luck in CAR), MDZ and DiMaggio

I like this trade. Zabo is totally useless and a goon could potentially make the NHL. Look at Langdon - he went from the ECHL to being a full-time goon with a decent skill set for a tough guy.

I doubt this kid will be as good, but who knows. Goons can come through and become NHLers just by slightly improving their skating to "good enough".

Zaborsky wanted to be traded since last year. He was not in the Rangers plans and they have been trying to get something for him. Zaborsky is very likely to play in North America this season--it is what he has been hoping to do since childhood. A new chance with a new organization.

Zaborsky has some offensive upside, McCue has none, but its not why he was obtained. The Rangers are looking to get tougher at all levels, but bottom line is McCue is what New York could get for Zaborsky.

McCue = potential Strudwick in 3 years

Zabo = probable entry-level corporate employee in 3 years

This will be in the dictionary in a few years:

Quote:
Mc·De·fens·man

n. Slang

A defensman, usually in the NHL or AHL sector, that is low quality, often temporary, and offers minimal or no benefits or opportunity for success.

I'm more than fine with that. The one year the Rangers decided to goon it up (1980-81) they made it to the Conference Finals and helplessly beat up a smurf LA team and St. Louis.

If you think about it, they were maybe a goalie away from winning a Championship that year.

This NEVER gets old;

all speculation right now. just nice words.
That's not what I'm saying at all. What I'm saying is that this is a minor move, and people shouldn't piss on it just because it's not splashy. If you people want to whine about the state of our franchise or missing out on Kovalchuk it should be done in the appropriate threads, not here.

I agree. This is a pretty minor move.

I'll even go out on a limb here and say that my biggest beef with Sather post-lockout really hasn't been his trades or even his drafting. For me it's the free agent signings.

It's the Redden's, Drury's, etc. and their costs that plague this team.

Well, I would be able to handle losing better as long as we beat up the other team, I guess.

It is also kind of important to protect your younger players and develop toughness so that the team doesn't have to go out and sign a Boogard or Brashear any longer.

This is a critical move as someone will need to protect Redden in Hartford. Great move!

At the same time the Redden signing is the only truly BAD signing he has made. Coming out of 06-07 we needed two centers. He went and got two centers. A playmaker to play with Jagr (Gomez) and a guts/clutch/leader guy to play on the second line (Drury).

They got paid what the market deemed appropriate. I can't stand the people that sit here and act like Sather overpaid them by 2 million each on purpose. At the time they were great signings and every "expert" who now bashes us has us as one of the top-5 teams in the league. The signings made sense. They just didn't work out.

Redden is the one that should have never happened...

IIRC, there was a poll at the time - I know that I voted "good signings, but we paid too much" or something along those lines. I think that was the winning selection. So, there is some logic to what you write.

Having said that, we knew we were overpaying for them and when their production failed to meet their contracts, it made the Redden signing that much worse in context. It also made the Rozsival signing, which IMO was fair market value, bad in context, because we couldn't afford another contract of that magnitude with Hank, Gomez, Redden and Drury already on the books.

Boogaard is another one, however, that should have never happened. (Granted, on a different scale.)
