The Free Agent Frenzy Day 2 - (RFA's, UFA's + Trades)

Not sure if anyone noticed, but RIGHT before he tweeted the news about BR, Strickland tweeted the following:

Quote:
Look for the market for centers to pick up once Richards signs. RFA Artem Anisimov will re-sign with Rangers once Richards deal is done.
This will be a very good Saturday, if true.

yes it will be. We also get to see if Sather has a trade in the works fo a winger

Regardless I can live with just signing the RFAs( like Anisimov today?)
and giving Dubinsky, Wolski a shot. Also I think Boyle is going to slide to the Wing with Rupp C the 4th line

I posted this in the confirmed signing thread but I'll post it here too.

I am so pleased and happy right now. 6.5? Sather showing restraint? Sather LEARNING from his past mistakes? Maybe we don't need to fire him afterall....hopefully this continues.

Okay, so now we have Richards. We are a legitimate playoff team, but are we a stanley cup contender? Not quite....close but not quite.

The question I am posing is that if we were able to trade for Yandle, would we be stanley cup contenders? We'd have to give something up of value, it may have to be one of stepan or anisimov, but Yandle is a legitimate #1 Dman and quite the PMD as well.

Just food for thought.

Keith Yandle, here we come? Do it.

Girardi, Boyle, and something else for Yandle.

That would be BEAUTIFUL!

Yandle-Staal
Mcd-Sauer
Tim Erixon-?

*May have defensemen on the wrong side*

Regardless, that is an amazing D corps (if McD and Sauer continue their rock solid play) and what a PP it should be.

I'm a little bit scared, I have to say, that Sather will now lose his mind and go use the remaining cap space on Kaberle.

lol I see the Wings signing a Dman so Kaberle likely. Babchuk and White who were dealt for each other are the next best on the list

In G only Vokun , Emery and scrubs around

F, Gagne, Miettenen, Connolly.........not much else
but I am sure I am forgetting someone

Kaberle would make zero sense in our lineup. Richards is now our PP quarterback, and that is Kaberle's primary contribution.

Gilroy and M.A. Bergeron on the same defensive unit?

Everything has been good so far, so of course this will happen.

Later Matt..

Just a thought -

So the Rangers buy out Wolski - make a trade and bring in this first line next season:

Iginla - Richards - Gaborik


that line has everything, grit, net presence, playmaking ability on all sides, a sniper, a guy who can drop the mits... and a RH LH LH.

I know hes a LW but what the hell he probably can play his off wing.

Sense? Sense?



Things have gotten a lot better recently, for sure. But I would never put it past Sather to do something senseless.

Whatever. Back to the real topic at hand: how do we get Yandle?

I would think ONLY if he is willing to take a 1 yr deal at 2.5/3M

But I think the Rangers will target someone younger, less fragile via trade

Just looking at that picture you can tell they both were seeing the future and knew what would happen.

********.
