We already have one of those, and people have been killing him on here lately. A 2nd and a 4th is pretty steep to add another, especially one who's a pure rental. I'd rather keep those picks and package them for a bigger sure thing in the offseason, or use them to restock the cupboard if we deal guys like McIlrath/Thomas/Yogan/Whoever in another deal.

I'm so glad they kept all of the good prospects. It's too early to sort out who is worth keeping.

Read this on twitter from Christian Thomas, it put a smile on my face.

Wow. That makes me really happy they didn't trade those guys.

Smartest thing this organization could ever do. Keep the prospects and wait for a better fit.

Thomas and McIlrath are much better at gaining popularity with NYR fans through Twitter than Kreider's incident last year.

im contempt with what we did or didnt do for that matter, nash would have ****ed us cap wise. i love where this organization is heading and am really glad sather didnt deviate from that to add Nash, yea we could have probably gotten kostitsyn or zanon but you never know what the price for sather to acquire those guys was in comparison to the teams that did.

im confident in our guys stepping up in the playoffs and if its not our year theres always next year, this team has a nice window in front of us no need to rush it for one cup when we can be competitive for years to come.

Let me start by saying, I have been in favor of upgrading this team's offense forEVER. I've thought Dubi was overrated since after his second season and have wanted to take advantage of his inflated reputation around the league since then. And I was in favor of getting Nash (and before him, Ryan) from the moment it was rumored that he was available.

The front office gets an A. They didn't pay the ridiculous price required to get the one guy worth getting... and there WAS no one else worth getting. Given what the team has, who changed hands and what the costs were, I honestly think that had they made any significant moves I would've been less happy than where we are now.

As to the Scott acquisition, I'll start by saying I'm anti-goon... and I think it's a non-event. He's a minimum salary guy who expires at year's end. He's toughness against Boston & Philly and other than that, he likely sits. He's also a guy who, crappy as he is, provides experienced depth on defense should we be as unlucky as Vancouver was last year with injuries. In exchange we gave up a 5th, which isn't nothing - but it's easily replaceable if there's some guy hanging there in the 5th round that you think has slipped (especially since we're still flush with assets).

I wanted to upgrade the offense as badly as anyone on here. But, as far as I can tell, it wasn't an option - at least not at a reasonable price. So, we take our chances with what we have now (which is still pretty damn good), likely add Kreider and/or Erixon heading into the playoffs. And then try again in the summer for that one missing offensive piece.

I think that sums up my thoughts perfectly. I've been absolutely pining for us to upgrade the offense, but in the end I'm not distraught that we didn't trade for Nash.

+1. I expect Dubinsky to be lights out now. If this doesn't motivate him, nothing will.

Such a disappointing season from him.

Happy to be moving forward with the same team that got us to 1st place thus far.

Very happy to keep the prospects. Sounds like we have some great years ahead as well.

Hoping to see Dubi light it up in the playoffs (or before!) and prove he should be here.

Let's keep moving forward. LGR!

Indeed. He is one of the few players who shouldn't feel proud to be a Ranger right now. To be proud of what the team has accomplished. He hasn't been a part of it.

But he could prove otherwise the last 20 games and the playoffs. That he's done something to help the team at all.

I would've liked AK, but I'm more happy with what we didn't do than what we did.

AK is not a Torts kind of guy. There's a distinct possibility he would've been treated the same way Wolski was (although AK probably isn't quite that bad in his effort level).

Of course it's a bit disappointing but it would have been more disappointing giving into Howson's over the top demands.

If Milbury doesn't like it then I am sure we did the right thing.

C+ very average. Would have loved to see the PP addressed, but it's a good thing Slats didn't do anything stupid.

I think we all would have liked to have addressed the PP. But who really was out there that could do that aside from Nash? Did you want Rolston?

Wanted AK, but mostly wanted someone to step into the top 12 and make Mitchell the 13th forward he is.

Kevin Weekes and Craig Button put the Rangers in their list for 3 Stars of the deadline, FWIW. They applauded the Rangers for sticking with what they have and their belief in the team.
