What I dont understand is if we are going to dumb things down, and I mean really dumb things down, to just looking at goals and points totals in order to measure players value, why aren't we at least doing goals/cap dollars and points/cap dollars?
I mean in what real world scenario do you just go get the best, most expensive thing that you can afford? Price is always the number one determinant of making a purchase.
Wow...checked out for a few hours and checked back in to see Dustin Brown in play. That's a guy I want. He has a reasonable contract and is a clone of Callahan. Only difference? He's bigger. 27 goal average over the last 4 years. If there's a way to get him without disrupting the core, I'm definitely in.
He hasn't gotten injured in 2 of the 3 years with us, give me a break with this made of glass ********. He has 27 goals, good for 9th in the league, even strength goals count too. We don't need a 40 goal scorer? We need goal scoring this team severely lacks in that department. In order to be a contender you need to be good in offense, defense, and goaltending. This team is lacking offense, getting rid of our best forward will not help.
thats why we should sell him now, hes high, get brown and some change for um and let the dynasty begin
thank god for that 27 goals, better watch out that the grinder callahan dont cetch um
I'm not sure what you're trying to get at. Callahan doesn't have the offensive skills Gabby has. The next highest scorer is Richards and he's been nowhere for quite some time. If you don't have Gabby, we certainly ain't first in the East.
why do the rangers (in 1st) need a game breaker? they need a little more scoring punch and a better powerplay. brown helps with both for $4.6 mill less.
The Blues are another team near first that needs a game breaker. Without one they're not sniffing the cup. You can have a good regular season record when playing the southeast division 20 games or in the case of St. Louis, the Northwest sans Vancouver 16 games, and get by on just defense and goaltending. When you get into the playoffs and everyone plays good defense and gets good goaltending you're screwed.
All things considered, if I had the choice, I'd go for Brown over Nash every day and twice Sunday. Talk about a guy that fits the team identity well. He costs less than half than Nash capwise, and the Rangers wouldn't have to break the bank assets wise if he really is in play.
It's better than the Schenn, Simmonds and a 1st proposal. THAT was ridiculous.
Are you saying Brown > Schenn, Simmonds, and a 1st???
Im not a Schenn guy, but he was a somewhat consensus top prospect in the whole league prior to the season. I think a lot of us saw Simmonds as the player that Philly has fallen in love with. We'd love him on the Rangers.
