Gaborik is the only one that comes to mind. We have no reason to move Drury for Jovo.

Jovo is UFA. I'd take him on the 3rd pair if he signs for cheap. Drury for Jovo? Drury goes on LTIR and Phoenix saves some money?

Only if Jovo gets less than 2m.

We have a reason to move Gaborik for a pending UFA?

Just thinking maybe they are clearing cap space. I have no idea nor do I really care, since it's Eklund.

Wouldn't trading Gaborik and signing Richards be a lateral move? I know Richards makes others better around him, but an elite sniper with a solid playmaker seems common sense.

Coyotes should buy Drury*!











*Buyer agrees that all purchases of Chris Drury include Wade Redden.**
**Seller does not warranty either products' ability to play NHL hockey.

this is just ridiculous

PHO is arguably our best trading partner but theyre not taking our crappy contracts

and dont even joke about trading gaborik for Jovo who is washed up

Trading Gaborik would probably prevent us from signing Richards. Why would Richards want to sign here without a sniper like Gabby to pass to?

why wouldn't we have a reason to move Drury for Jovo?

I mean if there was term left on Jovo's contract, that would eb one thing.

But if we get his rights for a week and the benefit of sheeding the last year of Drury's contract is the price to pay, that would be highway robbery for the Rangers.

We have 7.05 million reasons to move Drury.

makes no sense although Jovo has Sather written all over it July 1st

Would be ok for one year but I really dont see the need for a Dman

If its Redden I party,lol

anytime we see a high paid guy on waivers the rumors of the lower cap teams picking them up are going to fly

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the 10% summer cap increase doesn't begin until July 1st? So if we were moving Drury to Phoenix, we would need to take a guy like Jovo back (who would simply eat space until July 1st when we could let him walk and bask in the glory of our wonderful cap space).

Jovo + 20 for Drury + 15

Just do it. It gives us oodles of money for the summer.

The Rangers don't need to clear money. The money is there to sign the 5 group IIs and Richards. More money will be available when Drury goes on LTI. Phoenix doesn't need Drury's cap hit to reach the floor. Eklund hasn't linked Jovo to the Rangers in 2 years. He must be recycling material. Maloney isn't taking Wolski back. Saw this last night.

It's not unfathomable that Sather wants to pursue more than just Richards. I don't want that to be true, but moving Drury gives him a lot more breathing room, and room to pursue options in addition to Richards, including trades where we can take back salary.

Already pretty deep on the back end and doesn't address our biggest need. I would rather the kids play our 3rd pairing..

Take your pick as to who.

Yea honestly guys, being able to move Drury or Redden for Jovo would be a GREAT move for us! It automatically frees up a TON of capspace for us and we dont even need to resign Jovo. If Jovo asked for 3m TOPS then i would sign him, and he could be a great added factor to our blueline for a year or two..

Our other option is to just let Jovo go at free agency and have a **** load of capspace to sign Richards, all our RFA's except for Gilroy, and possibly make a deal with our loaded up prospects to gain another top line talent in return. this trade could enable us to make some serious deals for some top line talented players..

This is the stupidest rumor I have ever seen. And because I said that, Jovo will be a Ranger by tomorrow.

Somehow managing to pawn off both Roszival and Redden to the same team would be hilarious

I said the exact same thing (as did almost everyone else) when Eklund reported that Richards was also going to be traded (after Carter was) yesterday.

When's the last time he got a speculation correct. Just curious for all I know it was this year.

Yesterday. Richards being traded.

It's possible that after years of claiming to have a ton of sources, he's actually developed a few.
