I fail to see how any of these options are better than what Torts is already getting the most out of in Eminger, Stralman, Bickel, and Woywitka.

Really, it's not worth wasting assets on.

This.

I really don't understand why we need to waste pick/assets on rental defenseman. Depth, fine, but i'd rather just roll with what we got, with Sauer maybe returning sometime this season. (I haven't heard anything, is he scheduled to return at all?)

Was hoping the Rangers would get all their moves out of the way before tomorrow so I don't have to keep checking my phone while at work. Oh well. Won't be the first time a Trade Deadline Day or Free Agent Frenzy has hindered my motivation at work.

Don't want Campoli but I'd be cool with adding O'Brien.

The Rangers usually add a defenseman around the deadline.

Maybe the Rangers should dangle Dubinsky in a trade. He is playing on the 3rd line. He saw zero PK time last night. Was Torts preparing for the trade? He saw 1 minute on the PP. Dubinsky looks lost out there. Don't give him for nothing. Get back quality. A team looking to change their mix. Dubinsky can play center.

The Rangers haven't playing too well defensively lately, but we still need scoring a lot more than defense. I'd rather spend our assets there.

Forget D.

- Get me a lw with scoring touch.

Then we go for it. Big time.

6:08PM: Carp from Rangers Report tweets: “Wow. Sounds as if, not only are the Rangers out on Nash, but they don’t expect any major moves by the deadline. Surprised? I am.

Carp is funny.......the market stinks......by no major moves it means depth Dman and faceoff C.......I dont expect anything MAJOR either

If he could stay healthy it'd be worth it. But he can't, so he's not worth it.

I just want a face-off specialist. A cheap veteran bottom-pairing defenseman would be nice as well, but a face-off specialist should be the number one priority.

So what the hell is our plan B now?

There is nobody out there.

Penguins are going to roll over this team in a best of 7 series when they get Crosby back.

I agree. The defense as it's been for the past few weeks isn't containing Malkin and Hank can't do everything by himself all the time.

Right now, we're back to being a team that relies on Hank. The offense has been streaky and the defense has been subpar.

To me, the effort hasn't been there. Look at the first goal yesterday, players got complacent thinking Staal could fend off those guys, and instead of busting it back, glided back and were half a second late on preventing that chance. Effort level needs to go back up. I'd bring in an energy 3rd/4th liner and a depth player for defense along with possibly a face off guy.

Someone I'd like to see the team possible go after is another Jones, but not David. Ryan Jones would be a good guy to grab off of Edmonton with them being sellers at the deadline. He's signed for next season at a modest 1.5 million and has 24 points (13G 11A) this season. He'd be a solid 3rd/4th liner for us and would bring some more energy to the roster. He could replace someone like Rupp or Mitchell, possibly even Feds.

With Crosby back and a still red-hot Malkin, the Penguins will roll over everyone sans Detroit, imo.

Pens scare me, but as long as we can contain Malkin we can beat the Pens in the playoffs easily. They rely on Malkin as much as we rely on Hank sometimes lol

Crosby is a big IF for them. You don't come back from that injury. It just doesn't happen, and if you do, you get it again. Odds are, Crosby won't be playing come play off time.

Minus the Stepan empty net goal the Rangers have scored 3 goals in the last 3 games we played against them. With that type of production, we can have Crosby, Malkin, Neal, and Staal hurt and they'll beat us.

Yet we are 2-2 against them. And we beat them with Crosby.

And what about when we beat them 4-3 with Crosby in the lineup? Was that a fluke? Luck?
And why does Fleury's mistake not count as a goal? He can do it in the regular season, he can do it in the playoffs.
