Obviously, but I think production to pay wise it's clear Drury should be the one to be hoodwinked if we could only do it to one of them.

and now here we go with getting rid of Arty, again.

To me this should be an absolute given. No reason to keep either one.

BTW, for anyone touting Wolski's 1 goal and 3 points in the playoffs, don't forget he finished the regular season scoring 1 goal over his last 18 games (6 points during that stretch). Is that the kind of contribution you think is acceptable for a guy with a nearly $4 mil cap hit?
Definitely Stepan.

Again.

Wolski provides nothing when he's not scoring. Anisimov is an excellent defensive forward who can PK and forecheck. Three traits Wolski does not have. The straws. You're grasping at them.

I have to disagree here my friend.

I would rather have Wolski for another year than Drury. Especially since Drury frees up more money, and Wolski might actually do something offensively.

Well, I agree with that.

And poor Anisimov, the kid will never be fully appreciated by the idiots that are Ranger fans.

I'm not advocating buying out Wolski over Drury, just stating reason why management would.

How that big goal Anisimov score do for us? Wait that didn't happen again....... these are facts not straws.

For all these awesome PK fowards we have how come we didn't crack top ten in PK this year?

Anisimov is the best defensive center on the team. You do not get rid of a 40+ point sophomore center at the age of 22. If that's the case, we should have traded Dubi and Cally a long time ago for not much.

I have been vocal on saying I want Wolski to stay but if he is bought out you have to hand it to Sather turning 5 million in Rozy into a manageable buy out saving space for a guy like Richards

Anyway to get more on topic, i'm sort of in the camp to not get rid of Wolski yet if the money's just going to be used for Richards/ RFAs. I think getting rid of other guys, plus Drury buyout, plus the cap going up I think we'll have ample room for Richards. If we're buying out Wolski to put in Jussi Jokinen or something, sure. If we're doing it to give Boyle 2 million a year i'm not really a fan of that.

I don't appreciate a guy who can't hit the net if his life depended on it no. That makes me an idiot?

Send Anisimov to Detroit or Montreal and watch him absolutely flourish and become a great 2-way 70 point center.

Ridiculous to want to move him. Absolutely ridiculous.

Someone was saying move Wolski to center, so someone would have to go wing.

That is excellent center depth. When was the last time we had that?

That's not the point.

The point is that Wolski is useless when he's not scoring, and he didn't score enough for us to warrant 3.8m in salary next season. Which is why he might be bought out.

I dont see why we cant just buyout both Drury and Wolski. Im sick of Wolski. Its not even like the guy has good intangibles. If he's not scoring, he's not doing anything.

If that's your reason, I would think so. He's 22.

I still think we'll be able to trade Wolski. A team trying to reach the cap floor would be more willing to trade some ****** draft pick for someone young like him over signing some over the hill vet for a lot of money that doesn't fit with their team.

There are only 4 spots man. The team is looking to upgrade down the middle, Gabby wished it as much in the media. Someone has got to go and I dont' think it's Boyle or Stepan.

The fact that you'd trade Anisimov before Boyle shows your knowledge in this situation.

And don't get me wrong - I love me some Boyle, but Anisimov is clearly better.

Boyle should not be a center anyways. He should be moved to LW where he can utilize his size along the boards.

Offensively he disappears for significant stretches at a time...

This season he went 10 games without any points during one stretch, and went 5 games without any points on 3 separate occasions during the season. His points tend to come in clusters and then you don't hear from him for a bit.

You mean the age when Wolski was putting up 65 pts?

Artie birthday is next month so he's 23, two years younger than the more proven player you say should be bought out.

Although, really, you can't see why they'd buy Wolski out over Drury?

Drury is the captain, a veteran, and widely respected around the league. Wolski doesn't seem to be very well liked by any of his former teams, or the coaching staff, while Drury is lauded for his personality. If you don't think this comes into the conversation of whether who they should buyout or not, you're living in fantasy land.

And, another thing, it will cost MUCH less money to buy out WoLOLski.
im sorry dude but defending drury- after watching him last season is just silly but making it a popularity contest, thats beyond silly.

did you really type what i highlighted in red with a straight face ?

you wanna talk money, im right there with you, but capt dreary being a "nice guy" doesnt play into it at all.

heres one for you.

one of the players in question is a broken down 35 yr old who cant skate and cant score while the other is 25 years old and capable of 50-60 points in this league if he gets decent minutes. (hes done it before as a 23 year old)

they both cost too much, ill give you that.

the big difference, one is an nhl player, the other isnt......
